Lordosis and anterior pelvic tilt?

    I was wondering if anybody here has any personal experience with lordosis and anterior pelvic tilt. The reason I'm curious is that I workout at least 5 days a week and I just can't seem to get my abs as flat as I was hoping even though I don't think I have anymore fat to lose.

    I recently read a little bit about lordosis and anterior pelvic tilts and I vaguely remember a chiropractor saying that my pelvis was tilted a while back. I figured that this could have been the cause for my frustration. Has anybody dealt with this problem? What did you find to be the best way to correct it?

    lordosis is a sign of weak abdonimal muscles, strengthening your abs can change that.

    for strengthening my abs I normally do 3X10 (both sides) wood choppers at 70lbs and 3X25 crunches at 170lbs all on a cable machine. I do this at least every other day. should I be doing something else?

    That's alright man, I appreciate any response. I was just wondering if the exercises I was doing were even all that beneficial and if not what I should try.

    You also could have tight hip flexor muscles, so to reduce the excess anterior pelvic tilt try strenthening your abs and also stretching your hip flexor muscles...this should reduce low back pain

    I have this also. I read that stretching your hip flexors and strengthening your abs (they recommend planks instead of traditional ab workouts like sit ups) can help correct that.

    I have the same problem and sympathise. Even if your not that fat your gut shows more than it should and appear to have more junk in the trunk. This makes finding jeans / pants which fit difficult I find.
