I think keeping it neutral is your best bet. For safety sake, you wouldn't want to tilt your pelvis too far in either direction.

I know that in the hover squat portion of Strong Bear, Tracie says to tilt your pelvis forward. I don't recall her telling you to tilt it backwards in any of the FitPrimes, but I could have missed it...

Disclaimer - this is only what I do -

But I have had my form observed and gotten tips, etc.

When I squat, and I'm pushing my rear back, I'm imagining that my pelvis does dip back, too, but my abs/core are engaged throughout, so I have never felt like I was in danger or being unsafe.

When I'm coming back up from the squat, bring it to standing, I know my pelvis tips forward, as I squeeze up to get the most out of the move. Again, my core is engaged.

Does anyone else do them this way? I was told my squat form was very good.

Oh dear, now I'm confused.

I thought Tracie said (in Strong Bear) to keep the pelvis back ("the soup pours out").

And then in the TLPs she says to always keep it forward to engage the core.

When I do squats, I'm so busy pushin' that I don't really know where the heck my pelvis is.
Don't squat with yer spurs on.
