Why does pelvic tilting hurt the lower back? To me, pelvic tilting is a lot like lying on my back with my knees up. It helps my lower back. Or maybe, what I think is pelvic tilting is actually proper posture?
Arching my back causes my back pain.
Best for back pain is forward bends, IMO. If you can't touch your toes, spread your legs out wider.
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained to 110 on sugar cheat. Reset with 85P / 90C / 90F. Currently weaning off fat to 85P / 90C / 60F.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
