    Workouts for APT

    Hi there! I was wondering whether Darebee has any workouts for helping correct Anterior Pelvic Tilt. If not, are there any workouts that might work well for it in general? I have moderate APT and I struggle to do most of the ab workouts I've found because they make my APT worse and I don't feel them in my abs because of my body's reliance on my lower back. I'm looking for any exercises that use only the abs (without the opportunity to use the back) and stretches for my hip flexors. I appreciate any advice!

    There are two muscle groups that help to reverse an APT.
    Glutes and ABS... First: learn to activate your glutes!!!!
    Frog bridges/pumps are a good start... once you know how it feels you can get them more involved in almost every exercise that keeps you upright... or hinge your hips...

      Glute bridges, Sprints, trap bar deadlifts and dead hangs from pull up bar help lengthen spine, activate core and glutes. Especially full on sprints and perfect form trap bar deadlift. You'll feel your abs front and side and glutes. Good luck

        I'm not super familiar with APT but I do struggle with lower back issues after an accident. I recently did the Core Strength program to help out some issues. And yes, learn to engage glutes and abs. My PT would always make sure I had engaged my lower abs before doing leg raises or bridges. When engaged, I can feel and she can see, a slight pelvic tilt forward. Also, kegels. Make sure the innermost pelvic muscles are also engaging. People forget those are for guys and gals. Kegeling before doing any exercise can help make sure all deepest muscles are engaged and giving support. I kegel while doing any kind of weight lifting, and sometimes while running, just to make sure those muscles remember to engage and support.
