Default Lordotic Arch

Since beginning my journey through hell as I now know it (aka, my current job) I have managed to misplace my lordotic arch. At first I thought I left in the break room of the office but alas, it was not there.

I've got a pretty good idea of how to find it again, LOTS of hamstring stretches, OH squats, etc. Any other movements I should pay particular attention to that will hasten the return of my lordotic arch? I really miss it.

hows your posture while seated at work?

i dont know how quickly good posture will lead you to your lordotic arch, but sitting all hunched over a keyboard defintely wont help the battle!

I use two:

x-band walks (basically look a jumpstretch band between your feet, cross it in an "x" and walk sideways.

And glute bridging with my weight belt around my knees pushing out.

I use supine bridging - with my shoulders on a swiss ball and what Steve mentioned x-band walks.
