    Question Anterior Pelvic Tilt (APT) tips & suggestions

    Something I've only started to discover & learn about recently is that I have APT. Likely cause is the discovery of PC gaming and continuing with it for dacades...

    My posture and balance have always been awful but now i know a cause I can set goals to work towards improving it.

    Just wondered if anyone else has had this in the past, still has this and whether you have some tips on excercises, chairs to buy or anything else.

    I'd like to get back into general fitness but would prefer to improve my APT first, as this restricts the type of excercises I can carry out.

    Re: Anterior Pelvic Tilt (APT) tips & suggestions

    There is a lot of info out there.

    The overall answer is stretch the front (hip flexors) and strengthen the back (glutes).

    For a more through (and professional) explanation look on you tube for some older videos by Dr Kelly Starrett (but ignore the crossfit nonsense).

    Other helpful channels would include Omarisuf and pre 2015 strengthcamp ( he went off the rails after that)

    Go and see a proper physio and get it checked out properly. There is no way that any of us can (or IMO should) properly advise over the Internet.

    I've used Sue here before: http://www.optimumperformanceclinic.co.uk/

    If you're near Camberley (your Location says Bracknell)

    Thanks I've had a quick glance at some of the videos, they appear to have some decent depth to them and the right kind of focus on problems as opposed to just throwing out an excercise.
