Default Correcting Hyper-Lordosis

I've always had a issue with hyper lordosis - while I am tall (6'2") and slender (about 195), I tend to stand sway back so it looks like my abs poke out slightly. Perhaps it's genetic - my dad, brother, and sister have similar issues.

Combined with a lack of mobility in my shoulders which I am working on, overhead movements can be a dangerous affair. I have recently been working on L-sits and superman planks to increase isometric strength, and caught the post recently on Esther's work.

Any other ideas for correcting hyper-lordosis? I'm running into more problems now, as many strongman movements demand leaning back significantly while bearing a load (continentals with an axle, atlas stones, log press), and my lower back is the weak link.

I caught this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhFK3Iq-u50 and while give it a try.

Thanks!

I have had lordosis for as long as I can remember and tried a million different things for it (ART, chiropractors, foam rolling, different mobility exercises, more deadlifts, etc.) but going to a PRI therapist is the only thing I've found worth a lick. I'd recommend finding a practitioner in your area. You should see improvement in a month or less--it only took a week for me.
