Resting position (normal posture) gives strong clues as to which muscles are long, which are short, since resting position is a "balance" between antagonistic muscles. We need to lengthen muscles that are too short, and shorten supporting muscles that are too long, then use them habitually in that shortened position. This will counter balance the muscles that tend to get too long. It is ineffective to merely strengthen long muscles; they must be gotten to be shorter in their "resting" position by habitual positioning.
Need train movement to be correct through practice so correct part moves, correct part STABILIZES. (practice, use wall for support, mirrors for visual alignment.
Need correct postural habits which involves all the above, i.e. exercise must become a habit
