The client will start in a forearm plank position and tilt their pelvis anteriorly (lumbar extension) and posteriorly (lumbar flexion). This can be achieved by thinking of tucking the belly button up to tilt posteriorly and pushing it out to tilt anteriorly.
This should be a controlled movement and should not be any faster than it is shown. If injured, please consult with a health professional before doing this exercise.
This moment should be used to bring awareness and control of the pelvis so that body is in a more neutral position. It may also bring some relief to lower back pain and discomfort.
This may be used as a warm up or cool down in an athlete's program.
Other variations include Standing Pelvic Tilt, Prone Posterior Pelvic Tilt, Bent Supine Posterior Pelvic Tilt, Supine Posterior Pelvic Tilt, and Front Leaning Rest Posterior Pelvic Tilt.
