Hey guys well I have been working on my abs for sometime and realized that i see results but not to the way I should, then I learned of the term tilted pelvis. I did the test and it appears so that I have one. Does anybody have any excercises to get this fixed so I can get to that flat stomach?. Thanks

If you get lean enough, I doubt that it'd matter.

Alan Aragon just included a long article by a guest author in his most recent AARR which included a very detailed discussion and lots of cites. That alone should be worth the $10 it costs per month. Even if you don't like the rest of the issues covered, that $10 will get you this month's AARR (and access to 2 years worth of other newsletters) and I doubt that you will regret that small investment for at least getting pointed in the right direction.

Oh, it matters a lot! Following that kind of advice is what gets people injured or worsens existing problems.

An anterior pelvic tilt is indicative of muscular imbalance and will lead to a world of sh*t if not resolved.

OP you should get your gluteals and other muscles checked as well, as often it is weakness or imbalance in gluteus medius and piriformis/hamstrings that can cause an anterior pelvic tilt. It puts excessive strain on the lumbar spine over time and can lead to mechanical problems and low back pain. Do you do any stretching at all?

Don't ignore this! You need to fix this before you go any further!

Living with chronic low back pain long term is guaranteed to take you to rock bottom, both physically and mentally.

EDIT - do some research on anterior pelvic tilt, a good place to start is the sportsinjury bulletin website.

The article I referenced was written by Tom Vachet and is called Pelvic Torsion or pelvic imbalance with a functional leg length discrepancy: a sports performance perspective.

I've had that, or rather that mixed with Lordosis, Its a bit of pain to get it sorted out and I'm still not right. Its gonna require some dedication and about six months work in some cases to correct it depending on how bad it is...I agree with the above poster saying that its vital to correct it for your spine health. Also you have to think 'posture' 24 hrs a day
to do it right. Its not one of these things that sorts itself out with 30 mins abs training
3 days a week.

Have a read of the links below from my bookmarks, some good stuff listed, some not so detailed but should point you in the right direction.

First, pelvic tilt and pelvic torsion are two different things. My article in Alan Aragon's Research Review deals with torsion. Tilt describes either an anterior (most common), or posterior orientation of the pelvis in relation to "neutral". Both are front to back problems

Anterior tilt is the result of a number of issues; usually overactive and dominant hip flexors/quads, inhibited or weak glutes and hamstrings (reciprocal inhibition). A component of this is also inhibition of the transverse abdominus (natures little weight belt), which allows your belly to appear slightly distended.

Targeted strengthening of the glutes and hamstrings, along with lengthening of the flexors, will get you started to solve this problem

Pelvic torsion is a side to side issue with the pelvis. One Ilium, or hip bone, becomes rotated forward, or to the rear. It's a much more complicated issue, and one with profound implications for an athlete in terms of performance limitations and increased injury risk. pelvic torsion requires treatment first, then strengthening. The pelvis is unstable, with a large consequence of inhibition of the core.

You can read more in my article, but it's not the same issue as tilt.
