    Unhappy Curved lower back problem

    My lower back in highly curved inside. As you can see in the pic my upper-back/shoulders and hips are almost at the same level but an exaggerated lower back curve in between. This is my natural standing posture which seems like I'm pushing my chest out and upper back backwards.
    Lower back arched inside tenses my lower back and is painful sometimes. Any suggestions on how can I flatten it or reduce the curvature?
    Thanks.

    Google "anterior pelvic tilt" and put some pants on.
    Donít chase the 1%, there is no magic training routine or diet thatís going to provide any measurable results over the basic principles for getting huge and strong: Train heavy, eat and sleep more.

    I think it's Lordosis. Ofcourse I tried to elaborate my problem for getting precise suggestions but with private parts hidden.

    Yep, looks like lordosis! You can improve this by increasing your lower abdominal strength and just generally focusing on correcting your posture i.e. tilt hips under and hold core tight. Here's a simple ab workout you might like to try https://blog.dukesgym.com.au/blog/wo...hard-core-abs/

    That posture can be a cause of a tight lower back or glutes and a weaker core. You need to generally focus on strengthening your overall core. Abdominals, obliques, hips and lower back through various exercises (deadlifts, hip extensions, general core exercises). Most likely you don't stretch either so you need to implement stretching into your routines as well.

    Hope that helps! Don't expect it to go away quickly either this will take abit! Doing deadlifts make sure to have ideal for and don't pack on weight do more reps at lower weights.
