Muscle of The Month: Psoas - Core Power or a Pain in the Back?

PSOAS - CORE POWER OR A PAIN IN THE BACK?

The muscle of this month is a powerful, awesome and very important muscle for basic and athletic functions alike, but also a pain in the back (literally!). When strong, it will power many of the things we do at the gym or in life. When weak and shortened (tight), it will cause an array of imbalances and even back pain. 

Meet your body's most powerful hip-flexor on this week’s post and read on to learn about the good it can do for you, its effects on the spine during seating and walking as well as how to strengthen and release this key muscle.
