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.

Work Smart, Not Hard

Get better results from the work you put into your body  

When it comes to attaining results hard work is good, but working hard on your joints can set you back farther than where you started. Getting the best for your body while staying away from injuries is all about how you move. 

If you lead an active life style, it's likely that you have at one point or another experienced a muscle or joint strain and maybe a minor injury or even a major one.

Learn how you can apply what I call the Pilates Way into the activities you already do for better health, longevity of your joints, strength (and the good looks too!) at the best of what your genetics can afford you.
