I've lived with Anterior Tilt and know the struggle of trying to fix it.
I’m Matt Hsu, the founder of Upright Health. I spent years trapped in anterior pelvic tilt.
It all started after a back injury. An acupuncturist told me to relax my belly muscles all the time…so I did.
Then I ended up with a shoulder injury. Then I tried to implement the “relax your belly” technique again...
Fast forward a few years, and I was living alone in a tiny studio apartment in Japan with very little ability to speak Japanese. I was trying to figure out how to sit at the computer so my right shoulder wouldn’t hurt.
I started sitting with big time anterior tilt. I cranked my low back into extension as much as I could. This made my shoulder feel better and seemed to match the idea of “sitting up straight.” So I doubled down on this sitting technique for a long while…
Fast forward another couple years, and some posture experts I was learning from were telling me the same thing I’d heard before…’RELAX YOUR ABS.’ BIG CURVE in your low back!
I spent at least 10 years in anterior pelvic tilt.
I ended up with hip pain, reduced hip range of motion, weak knees, feet, and ankles. I was lifting weights but somehow still not feeling good…
When I finally realized that I was training my body to be stiff and locked in an anterior pelvic tilt, I put in a lot of time and effort to put my pelvis back in neutral.
I also learned that some of the things I was doing in daily life and during my workouts were sabotaging my progress!
Anterior tilt was a big roadblock for me, and it was definitely a major contributor to my broken body. Once I learned how to really get rid of it, I knew I should put it into a program for others.
I always want to be mobile, resilient, and strong so I can do fun stuff like playing with my kid, riding my bike, or catching some waves. I know others out there are just like me. There's no reason to suffer with APT when fixing anterior tilt can be straightforward!

So let's answer some common anterior pelvic tilt questions...
The key to solving any problem is understanding it before taking action!
Let's dive in to your questions about anterior tilt!
What the heck is anterior pelvic tilt?
Let’s make sure you know what anterior tilt is. Think of your pelvis like a bowl. There’s a front of the bowl and a back of the bowl.
When the front of the bowl is tipping lower than the back, the contents spill forward.
The front of your pelvis (pubic bone) is the front of the bowl. Your butt is the back of the bowl.
When you are in anterior tilt, your lower spine is also stuck in a curve in a specific direction. This direction is called “extension.”
How do I know if I have anterior pelvic tilt?
Here's a simple test. Lie on the floor face up. Bend your knees so the soles of your feet are on the floor. You should feel a small gap between your lower spine and the floor. That's normal.
If you've got good pelvic control, you should be able to flatten your low back to the floor.
If you're stuck in anterior tilt, you'll feel a huge gap between your low back and the floor. When you try to flatten your low back, you'll find it hard or impossible.
When standing, from the side view, you'll that you have a big arch in your low back that your tail / butt sticks out (check out the images below for an example).
This is what different pelvic tilts look like
Anterior Pelvic Tilt
Neutral Pelvic Tilt
Posterior Pelvic Tilt
Anterior Tilt isn't some grave medical condition. It's about teaching muscles to position your bones a certain way!
Your goal is to be able to achieve all these positions when and where you need them!
What are the symptoms of anterior tilt?
Being stuck in anterior tilt can make your low back feel stiff and fragile all the time, because it’s stuck in extension all day.
It can also give you sharp pains as your body warns you that you’re at the end of your range of motion. For example, if you’re already in extension and you try to do a back bend or cobra pose FURTHER into extension!
Anterior tilt can also make your hips LESS mobile. The muscles that keep you in anterior tilt aren’t able to function properly. By definition, this reduces your hip range of motion.
Finally, depending on your anatomy, anterior tilt may make it impossible to achieve certain movements as your thigh bone runs into your pelvis!
Can I fix anterior tilt of my pelvis?
Yes. The position of your pelvis, spine, and leg bones is the result of muscle activity. If your muscles are trained to hold you in anterior tilt, that’s what they’ll do.
If they are not trained to get you out of anterior tilt, you’ll be stuck!
Teach your muscles how to activate and work in new positions, and you’ll be able to achieve anterior, neutral, AND posterior tilt!
Can exercises to fix anterior tilt actually work? Isn’t it a bone problem?
This is one of the biggest misconceptions about anterior tilt. Chiropractors, doctors, and physical therapists will say that anterior tilt is a bone problem. Sometimes they say it CAN’T be fixed.
When someone says that anterior tilt is a bone problem that can’t be fixed, it only means that they don’t know how to fix anterior tilt and/or that they've never given the topic serious thought.
Things health professionals will say about Anterior Tilt
I've heard all the lines about APT. You need some more appointments to fix your anterior tilt. You need another adjustment to your spine. You need to commit to $100 appointments FOR ETERNITY so we can massage the right muscles...
There are two BIG problems with this very common approach.
- NOBODY can make weak muscles stronger for you.
- You'll be paying thousands of dollars for poor results that don't last.

This program keeps things practical and applicable for YOU in your REAL life.
"The program is awesome, and I want you to know how monumental it has been for me. I feel like until I actually put in the time and effort to learn my own body, a lot of these concepts would not really click, at least for me. But your videos have helped guide me through this process so much and given me inspiration to keep tackling this and just be better all around - its great.
It’s one thing to watch the videos and be like “hmm okay, I see," but that moment when I’m practicing a cue or movement and it just clicks and I understand how it works and what its supposed to feel like…those moments are straight up golden! So thanks for everything you do; you’re a big part of my successes."

"I can't believe my physiotherapist never explained the reasons why I was doing exercises.
It's totally true, all those exercises that I got only work if you understand the reason why you’re doing them! Once I understood I could correct my posture at all times, 24/7!"
"I’ve been lifting weights for about a year now, flipping from program to program without truly understanding midline stabilization or motor control. I found this program by accident and immediately started implementing their cues. I saw significant difference in all my movements, and I also saw where my mobility restrictions were.
This program is the real deal because they approach posture and movement from a broad perspective - from pro athletes to older folks (no joke) - and know how to program routines for each. If you want to be the most efficient you can, look no further. These guys bring very complex ideas and break them down for you in easy to understand terms."
