#1 Program to UNLOCK Your Tight Hip Flexors
http://www.criticalbench.com/growth/psoas/

Do THESE 3 Exercises to release those tight hip flexors and improve your squats. Injury Specialist and creator of Unlock Your Hip Flexors Rick Kaselj dropped by the CriticalBench Compound to help men and women with their super tight hips and to see them squat deeper and with less discomfort.

Your hips are the bridge between your upper body and lower body. They are at the center of your body’s movement and directly affect your ability to drop down into squat position.

Sitting within the well of your hip and lower spine is the psoas major muscle, one of the two muscles that makes up the iliopsoas.

It’s often called the “mighty” psoas (pronounced so-az) for the many important functions it plays in the movement of your body.

The psoas is the only muscle in the human body connecting the upper body to the lower body.

The muscle attaches to the vertebrae of the lower spine, moves through the pelvis and connects to a tendon at the top of the femur. It also attaches to the diaphragm, so it’s connected to your breathing, and upon it sits all the major organs.

A functioning psoas muscle creates a neutral pelvic alignment, stabilizes the hips, supports the lower spine and abdomen, supports the organs in the pelvic and abdominal cavity and gives you greater mobility and core strength.

How to UNLOCK Your Tight Hip Flexors Today!
http://www.criticalbench.com/growth/psoas/

Do THESE 3 Exercises no matter where you are and get instant relief in your tight hips in 5 minutes! That may sound far fetched but I promise you it’s not. I sit for a living at a computer but I’m sure to do these 3 moves to give my hips and lower back some instant relief.

This bent over, partial fetal position that we find ourselves in most hours of the day is not ideal for our body’s design. We are meant to be vertical and moving around all day long OR horizontal at rest with some ‘occasional’ sitting…not 8+ hours per day!!!

Injury Specialist Rick Kaselj dropped by the CriticalBench Compound to show Head Strength Coach Chris Wilson some of the best and easiest movements to help UNLOCK his tight hips.

Let’s face it, the center of our body is not what it once was…. People stood more and walked around more hundreds and thousands of years ago. The center of our body used to be loose, strong and healthy. Life demanded it to be that way.

Now we cause our hips and lower back stress by sitting so much, not being active every day and forcing our hip flexors to be shortened which leads to TIGHTNESS and discomfort. And this sets off a chain reaction because the hip flexors and lower back area directly affect each other.

The more we engage our lower back and glute area, the more we stretch our hip flexors and we attain BALANCED strength from front to back. Do these 3 moves to regain some balance in your body.

Primal Muscle That Eliminates Back and Joints Pain, and Looking Fat

Fix_Hips_PainI think you probably can’t guess which muscle in your body is the number one muscle that eliminates back and joints pain, anxiety and looking fat. This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked. If this most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.

The biggest most widespread flexibility problem nowadays is caused by too much sitting. Over time sitting causes this muscle to become tight, and your hips to get locked into a “forward thrust” position. This forward tilt of your hips causes your pelvis and legs to rotate and pulls on your lower back that can lead you up to a number of back and leg injuries. There is also less blood flow and delayed nerve response in the hips. And static stretching alone won’t correct this.

The answer can be found on this page.

Even if you’re the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair. If you have tight hip flexors from sitting you can look fat even if you’re not! It’s called Bulging Belly Syndrome.

Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you’re hammering the core exercises every day? It’s a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles. 

The real cause is likely to be tight hip flexors (from sitting too much) , which cause the lower back to curve pushing out the stomach. When your hip flexors also known as the psoas works properly it pulls the abdomen back tucking the tummy in, giving you a strong flat stomach.

That’s why some people can look fat with a bulging stomach even if they’re not fat.

If you sit a lot (which causes tight hip flexors) and have a belly you want to get rid of, forget about dieting.

Instead I recommend that you incorporate these 10 Simple Moves into your day. They take less than 15-minutes to complete.

10 Simple Moves You Should Do So You Don’t Look Fat

Give it a try, you’ll bring vitality back into your life so that you can be strong, active and energetic for yourself and loved ones.

Former Back Pain Sufferer Reveals “4 Tactics To Eliminate Pain” and Prevent Further Injury From a Unique 3-Step Method That No One Else Will Tell You About.

The “Traditional Back Pain Model” involves endless cycles of appointments, investigations, stretching and strengthening.

After having hundreds of Rick’s clients follow this model with minimal success, he needed to find a new model that breaks the traditional back pain model and moves clients from painful lower backs to a pain-free lumbar region.

This led to the creation of the BR3 Method which is based on one key concept: Reshaping your lower back from a painful lower back to a pain-free lumbar spine.
I know it sounds amazing but let me show you how you can do this for yourself.
