    Most of that is genetic, core work might help or at least keep it from getting worse. Also keep in mind good posture at all times
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    In general, glutes/hammies/abs need to get stronger, psoas/quads/erector spinae are tight and need to be stretched. Without looking at you, I wouldn't tell you to do anything, though.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    Weak abs can lead to the lumbar pulling in. For the life of my I can't remember the name of this condition. Basically, if your abs are not sufficiently supporting your upper body, then the lumbar will pull forward in an attempt to fill the lack of support, causing an anterior pelvic tilt.

    Is this why I can't squat? And why I have knee pain ( I got an x-ray on knee, but doctor said nothings wrong)

    Couldn't tell you without seeing you do specific movements in person. It certainly doesn't help, though, and probably contributes to the problem.

    So for the abs, I already started doing stability exercises like planks, bird dogs, glute bridges, that enough?

    alright thanks, I thought the bad posture might have been from other weak/tight muscles, but its the same as why I can't squat and P-funk already helped me out with that.

    That is a swayback posture, which is basically an anteriorly tilted pelvis with exaggerated lumbar lordosis. This is often accompanied by kyphosis and a forward head posture.

    Generally, an anteriorly tilted pelvis is the result of one or more tight and/or overactive muscles from the following hip flexors, the tensor fascia latae (Which is a hip flexor, but is particularly notorius for being overactive and tight), erector spinae, and lats (They originate from the thoracolumbar fascia and subsequently connects at various vertebrae in the lumbar and thoracic spine as well as the sacrum).

    Also, the glutes and hammies are weak as well as the abs and most likely other intrinsic core stabilizing musculature as well. Sometimes it is one of the muscles, or sometimes all of them.

    You must not also forget the effect that various points on the kinetic chain can have on other parts of the body. You have to try to help correct all the weakness so some don't "re-breed" the others. Something as simple as being really tight in the ankles can cause improper motor patterns when walking, sitting, standing, etc. This will lead to ill-recruitment of various musculature which could cause one problem that causes another and so on until the entirety of your spinal curve is fucked.

    Yes, I was looking for "lumbar lordosis." Thanks.

    The only difference is that she actually knows what she's talking about. I'm just good at pretending I do.

    I agree with dale. it is correctable but you need the right program and the right person to administer it. from the internet we can only do so much.
