When you practice bodybuilding, it is important to take into account the balance of power between abdominal and gluteal muscles in front of their postural psoas iliac – spinal antagonists. If this ratio of force and negative, against the abdominals and glutes (ie psoas-iliac and strong spinal, buttocks and weak abs), it causes a rocking of the pelvis forward. This negative balance of power is one of the main causes of hyperlordosis (lumbar arch).

But, what must not be forgotten is that inflammation of the vertebrae can also be the cause of hyperlordosis. It is also the case of the vertebrae which are not in their place but which slipped forward. All of these factors can be the source of hyperlordosis.
