IS YOUR SHOULDER CAUSING YOUR ANTERIOR PELVIC TILT?
When we ▶ started this series, I mentioned that Anterior Pelvic Tilt (APT) is more of a stability issue than a mobility one. Let's explore that a bit.
There are some common compensation patterns that we see in the body. One of those is hyperextension and APT when going 🙆 overhead. Shoulder mobility plays into this, but so does anterior core stability. If you remember back to the 🎥 lat stretch video, that will take care of the mobility issues. This one, as demonstrated by @quaddoc, will build the stability for you.
Raising the arms up and extending the back occur along the same 🚈 motion path in the sagittal plane. So it's easy for one movement to assist the other. But when we don't want that extension, we need the stability and strength to 👊 fight it. That's where your anterior core comes in.
The abs and obliques keep the ribs from flaring upwards and act as the brakes on spinal extension. So when you 🏋 lift heavy things overhead, they keep the motion at the shoulder and not at the spine.
When we do this drill, we want to maintain NEUTRAL. We're diving into this more tomorrow night, but going into a posterior tilt won't fix an anterior one. 🤔 I'm gonna let you all think on that one.
We show these drills standing but you can ⏮ regress to kneeling or half kneeling if necessary. Then move on to the band and start building up some strength. Try it out. 😉 It's harder than it looks.
