Detailed measurements of the relative contributions of spine motion and pelvic motion during flexion-extension and free lifts (squat-type) are examined. The results are consistent with the conclusion that passive stretching of the ligamentous tissues transmits significant extensor moment in these activities, the power being supplied by the hip extensor(More)
An explanation for the importance of pelvic tilt exercises is proposed. This explanation derives from a mathematical model that predicts the existence of a relationship between lordosis (pelvic tilt) and the distribution of stresses within the spine. The model predicts that, for every angle of forward flexion, there is a unique degree of lordosis that will(More)
