    Anyone else have lordosis of the spine? (aka swayback - hips tilt forward, ass and stomach stick out)

    I've had it for a very, very long time and am just now realizing to what extent. It makes me look like I have a belly when I really don't. I've started a number of stretches and exercises to help correct it.

    Anyone else, and have you been able to correct it?

    try strengthening hamstrings also perhaps. Who knows I'm just talking out of my ass here. It could just be structural

    When I do the stretch in the youtube video above, I feel like it's mostly stretching my quads. wtf

    You might just have really tight quads for some reason? Do you actually perform the movement like him?
