When I lie down on my back, there is an arch in my back so that much of my lower back is not actually touching the floor. I take this to mean I have anterior pelvic tilt. I would like to be neutral.
If your pelvis is ‘neutral’ - your WHOLE back will touch the floor at every point, all the way down and up your back when you lie relaxed, flat on your back on the floor - isn’t that right?
I was thinking that the key to getting rid of anterior pelvic tilt is to have strong glutes. But then, I was thinking that my glutes are actually quite strong. I have a good mind-muscle-connection with them. Then I thought that Usain Bolt’s glutes must be VERY strong, yet he is in anterior pelvic tilt. And, of course, some sedentary office workers who don’t even lift are somehow in posterior pelvic tilt - do they just naturally have superhumanly strong glutes to make that happen?
So, do you think that if Usain Bolt increased his deadlift, his anterior pelvic tilt would go away? Or, conversely, do you think that the office workers that are in posterior pelvic tilt (and don’t lift) must be able to deadlift a ton first time, if they tried?
Is there a certain deadlift poundage that, once you reach it, you will NEVER be in anterior pelvic tilt? Say, if you do 500lbs, your glutes could still be too weak to prevent you from being in anterior pelvic tilt, but once you reach 650lbs, your glutes are guaranteed to be so strong that they will pull your pelvis into posterior pelvic tilt?
I’m not sure, perhaps Usain Bolt’s glutes ARE actually weak compared to some gym rat who deadlifts, and the weakness in Bolt’s glutes are causing him to have anterior pelvic tilt?
So you don’t just need ‘quite strong’ glutes to not be in anterior pelvic tilt - you need ridiculously strong glutes capable of deadlifting a huge amount - and then you won’t be in anterior pelvic tilt?
