The article you posted focuses on SI joint pain but there is some overlap in concepts. The core exercsise they show is not one that my physiotherapist had me doing. She says abdominal hollowing is an old concept and is outdated. When performing deep core exercises you should be contracted your deep core muscles only 20-30%. Its more of control. 
This video in that article:
Thats the form I perform the Romanian deadlifts. I use 25 pound dumbells on each arm however.
