How: in addition to just moving the seat back an forth on a four bolt seat post you can add spacer washers between the seat post and saddle to get a wider range of adjustment.
Why: Because everyone is different, try different setting to see what works. In general the lowest part of the saddle when the uni is vertical in riding the position is where most of the weight will be. Most find that if nothing sets in the way when the saddle nose is raised it will throw the weight back on the wider part of the saddle and put more pressure on the sit bones rather then sensitive parts. If the nose is lowered it will put more weight in the middle narrow part of the saddle. It seems that the flatter the saddle shape, the more the nose can be raised (without interfering with very sensitive body parts) and the more weight can be shifted back to the wider part of the saddle.
