2. Adjust the height of the backerest, which has te be against the lumbar region of your back. High back stuffing provides a support between the shoulder blades, which makes your ribcage straight and thus prevents from gaving round shoulders. Moreover it makes blood circultation easier.

Whatever the seat angle you have chosen, the angle of your thigh with your leg must keep close to 90°.
