    I have this, and to correctly align my body, I basically have to tense my glutes to shift the hips forward.

    Any tips to correct it?

    I have it, not as bad as it used to be. I've stopped caring really, I'm known for my big ass. Can't have APT correction taking that away from me. would probably help my flexibility for taekwondo though...

    Stretch your hip flexors, hip abductors and iliotibial band. This should help loosed them and start to correct your tilt, you may need to strengthen your hips and abs as well. If it's really bad you should go see your gp and get sent to a physio for corrective therapy.

    I used to have that, but it stopped when I started deadlifting and squatting heavily.

    Whilst squeezing your glutes will help you get into a better position, you can't walk like that. Generally a weak core is the real problem, and you'll probably find that squeezing your abs will also bring your spine into a better position. Squats and deads require you to keep a good posture under a load, but other core work can help too. By which I mean proper core work, for instance basic gymnastic movements, rather than endless sittups.

    If you get sent to a physio would you have to pay anything ?

    If you are referred by a GP on the NHS then no you don't need to pay.
