      I used to be able bench press more than my TC. Not anymore.

    It’s possible with certain exercises. I did this very recently. Google it and you’ll get some good exercise videos and stuff.

      How long would you say it took? Posture isn’t super super bad, but there’s times where I realize I’m hunching over and need to pull my shoulders back

      Going thru that rn. It’s not a great feeling but when you start those exercises, within couple of weeks you’ll see an improvement.

      ^You are the least specific person possible. Did you sign an NDA? Is this gov't top secret?

      OP, he is really referring to shoulder exercises. You likely have weak trapezius muscles in the shoulder, rear deltoids, upper/middle back, and lower back. To fix posture, you could do body weight type exercises or 10-25 lb dumbbells should be plenty. Having stronger muscles means that they won't tire out when sitting in the same position

    Quit staying after hours and go home and do some yoga, lift, or MMA. Life isn't about sitting down slouching over looking at code.

    Do lots of rows and rear self work. Pull-ups and deadlifts are good too. Basically any pulling movements Does wonders for your posture.
