Pelvic Rock, Sitting

Picture of how to do the sitting pelvic-rock exercise
  • Sit in a comfortable, neutral position, with your feet flat on the floor and your buttocks near the front of the seat.
  • Gently roll your shoulders forward. Feel the weight move backward on your "sit" bones.
  • Now straighten up slowly, rolling your hips and lower spine forward while your shoulders move back up.
  • Repeat 8 to 12 times, gently rocking your pelvis backward and forward.
