Intro: Posterior pelvic tilt in back squatting may increase the risk of low back injury. Hip joint geometry have been suggested as the main cause of pelvic tilt.
Aim: This study aimed to investigate the association between anthropometry and joint flexibility on posterior pelvic tilt during the back squat.
Method: We measured posterior pelvic tilt during the barbell squat in forty-three subjects, using marker-based 3D motion analysis. We also measured segment lengths as well as ankle, knee and hip flexibility.
