This photo, of a SkyLab-4 crewman,, stress-free and unrestrained posture the human body automatically assumes and indefinitely maintains in weightlessness. This natural posture, with an open trunk / thigh angle, is a totally relaxed and non-stressed state. When in natural posture the body's muscles, ligaments and tendons are most relaxed, the vertebrae are properly spaced and better aligned to reduce pressure on discs, breathing is improved and blood circulation is less restricted.
