Or tight hips lead to lordosis.

I've found with myself, that stretching the lats, hip flexors, hamstrings, and glutes helps with the low back prior to working out. Stretching your own glutes effectively is really hard to do though, so I often end up half-assing it and just drive my glutes into a bar. Fully equipped gyms tend to have bars that are at a good height to self-massage your entire back, glutes, hip flexors, and obliques.
