How to Do a Standing Pelvic Tilt for a Back Workout

Learn how to do a standing pelvic tilt from certified personal trainer Max Tapper in this home back workout for men video from Howcast.


Hi guys. It's Max Tapper for HowCast. Today, I'm going to show you how to do a pelvic tilt. There's two types of pelvic tilts; one, anterior pelvic tilt, two, posterior pelvic tilt. Okay? Now, let me show you that from the side. Anterior pelvic tilt is tilting your pelvis down to the front of you, tightening your lower back. Posterior pelvic tilt, tightening your lower abdominal muscles, bringing yourself forward. This is what a posterior pelvic tilt looks like, anterior pelvic tilt. It's a good way of strengthening your lower intra-abdominal muscles and it's something that I like to do in isometrics; holding these positions, especially a posterior pelvic tilt, for a long time - 10, 20 seconds, then releasing. Posterior pelvic tilt; tighten, tighten, tighten, try to talk, try to do as much as you can, converse with everybody as much as you can then release. It's just a really, really good way of strengthening these lower stability muscles in your body.
