  1. Hi Zach,

    To let you know that I learned a lot on your site. Hope you find some spare time to answer my question.

    I have specific question regarding turning on obliques to prevent anterior pelvic tilt or/and rib flare I do know that this is somewhat connected but I am curious if you are proponent/endorse exercises sch as hanging leg rise, reverse crunch… as viable exercises to return the pelvis to normal/neutral position.

    If not which exercise do you use.

    Thanks and take care,

    Robert

    • Hi Robert,

      Thanks for the comment. This is a tricky question and does not have the same answer for everyone. I will try and write a post on it soon. However, I will say that I am not a fan of reverse crunches and hanging leg raises for everyone. I actually wrote a post on reverse crunches a while back and why I do not think they are the always the right tool for improving anterior pelvic tilt. Basically, the short answer is that when you attempt to posteriorly tilt your pelvis you want the lumbar curve to segmentally flex (bend a little at each segment). The problem is that most people do not have this nice segmental flexion. Instead, they have several “hinges” where they move more than other areas. Therefore, when they attempt to flex their back with something like a reverse crunch they will mostly be getting movement from the “hinge” and it will only cause more weakness there. You want to build stability around this “hinge” and create mobility in the other areas that do not move as much. The way to do this depends, but breathing exercises are probably the most effective. A common one we use is to have people start on all 4’s and then rock their butt all the way onto their heels. Next, we have them drop to their elbows and take several breaths (10-20). The idea is that you are putting yourself in a posterior tilt and then driving the breath into the low back, which should help mobilize the area.

      Obviously, this is a very complex subject and, like I said, will differ for each person. Let me know if you have more specific questions. I will try to write something up on the topic soon. Thanks for the question!
