Pelvic Tilt Builds Abdominal Strength

The pelvic tilt exercise is composed of subtle motions that build strength by isolating, tightening, and holding muscle positions. To do a pelvic tilt:

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and your arms at your sides with your hands palm-side down.

  • Take several deep breaths. Breathe in and out slowly.

  • Tighten your belly muscles. This allows the small of your back to lower itself to the floor.

  • Hold for 5 to 15 seconds. Release the belly muscles.

  • Repeat this exercise 5 times.
