After replicating this movement of the human spine, Dr. Stuart McGill examined the discs and found they had been squeezed to the point where they bulged.
Luckily there's a 15-second stretch that you can do first thing in the morning that will really help your body feel better.
It may be the most harmless activity known to man, but it's also one of the biggest dangers to your health.
Unlock Your Hip Flexors Gives You A Practical, Easy-To-Follow Program You Can Use Today For Instantly Releasing Your Hip Flexors For More Strength, Better Health and All Day Energy.
Working with Rick, we've created a great program that is quite simply Done-For-You.
Rick has pulled together a "sequential flow" designed just for you composed of 10 carefully selected exercises, including PNF Stretching, Static Stretching, Dynamic Stretching, 3-Dimensional Core Stability Exercises, Mobility Exercises, Fascia Stretching and Muscle Activation.
Rick Kaselj is a kinesiologist and known as "THE" guy fitness professionals go to when they want to learn about the latest techniques to help their own clients. He's given over 352 live presentations to more than 8,152 health professionals in the US and Canada.
Static Stretching Has Its Place - But The Stretch You See Above Is the Best Stretch To Do In The Morning
If you see how the psoas is attached within your body, it's buried deep inside your core making it tough to access. It's a hard muscle to find, let alone train.
So it's little wonder why trying to loosen it requires more than a simple static hip flexor stretch like the one below you've probably tried before.
You've probably found you're spending (or wasting) hours of your time stretching this way only to find it's having minimal effect.
That's because you need to attack the muscle from a variety of angles using a variety of exercise techniques and modalities in order to "unpack" the muscle in the right way.
The truth is, you can learn to release your tight hip flexors on your own.
If you think of your psoas as a combination safe lock, there are several numbers that will unlock it but they need to be entered in the right order.
There are a number of specific movements beyond simple static stretching you can use to unlock and loosen your hips, legs and back.
PNF is an acronym for proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. It is a technique where you are activating a specific muscle in order to relax the muscles around a joint so you can decrease the stiffness around a joint.
This is where you are activating the muscle around a joint and moving that joint through its full range of motion in a progressive manner. This leads to an increased range of motion around the joint, warming up of the muscle around the joint and improved circulation around the joint. Think of high knees or butt kicks.
3-Dimensional Core Stability Exercises:
With these exercises we are targeting the muscle in all planes of movement so the core and abdominal muscles have good activation, endurance and strength in all planes of movement which leads to a decrease in unnecessary damaging stress on joints.
In these exercises, we are targeting the joint and doing movements and exercises that help the joint function optimally. This allows a joint to move more freely.
In this unique technique, we are targeting the tissue that muscles are surrounded in and working on loosening and lengthening the fascia. Few people understand the negative effect this tissue can have on your body.
Muscle Activation Movements:
Due to all of our sitting and daily technology use, many of our muscles are not working properly. With this technique, we're targeting those muscles that are off and activate them in order to help the body move more efficiently.
Stronger & Faster Than Ever
"Being an athlete all my life and having endured multiple knee surgeries due to blowing out ACL's in both knees, I later started to develop a hip issue in my right hip due to the years of wear and tear. It actually got so bad it was hard for me to perform as an athlete as well as be a productive coach for my clients.
After getting an MRI to have it checked out, I realized I had a degenerative arthritic condition in the hip that is not reversible. Surgery was not an option I wanted to go through so I contacted Rick Kaselj to see if he had something for me. When I started to apply the strategies from Unlock Your Hip Flexors it helped me re-balance my pelvis and hip joint to where I couldn't even tell I had an issue anymore.
These days I'm stronger and faster than ever and still competing in sports. Rick gave me the ability to perform at my highest level as a coach and regain the athletic ability I had lost over the years from wear and tear. I've been using Rick's strategies for years to help myself manage and recover from injuries as well as countless members of the fitness community. I couldn't recommend this product enough!"
