How did I get rounded shoulders?

There many different emotional, and physical factors that could have caused your rounded shoulders. One of the most common factors that has been linked to it is having improper posture while sitting for long periods of time. It could be to stress, or some other kind of emotional distress that causes the muscles in your chest, and/or abdomen to begin tightening. Additionally, this could also be caused by patterns of movement straining your muscles and tissues.

Are there health risks?

Having poor posture can negatively impact both your internal health, and your external appearance. The negative effects of rounded shoulders are mostly negative feelings about yourself in your subconscious mind. A hunched over appearance could harmfully impact the way you see yourself, and over time you may lose your feelings of self confidence, or become unable to see yourself as attractive.

Additionally, upper back pain has been reported along with other impairments that may require sufficient medical attention.

What's the right way to do these?

You can start with 8 repetitions and 2 sets for all 3 of the exercises, but as you get better and more comfortable, try to increase to 15 repetitions and 3 sets of each exercise for even better results. If you complete these 3 times a week, you should see noticeable results in less than a month. Additionally, it is important to know your limits, and be sure not to overstretch, and harm yourself.
