Everyone has their own unique brand of lower back strain: whether it be none at all, a medium twinge brought on by persistent poor posture or inactivity, or something more severe, there is always something to be done to keep our lower back strong to prevent or ease injury. An anterior pelvic tilt is symptomatic of a posture portfolio that includes rounded shoulders, a protruding abdomen and a head tilted toward the ground (something we call anterior head carriage). This kind of posturing can create unhealthy curvature of the back, and magnify the pressure on the spine, throwing it out of balance and leading to pain and stiffness in the muscles of the back.
This constitutes 1 rep, and you should repeat 3 times at least, totaling 15 seconds. Can you afford that once in the morning and once in the evening? If so, you will be doing innumerable good for a back that is wary from the strains of daily life.
