Hip Flexor Function
The main purpose of the hip flexor is to bring the thigh up towards the stomach. When the hip flexors are excessively tight, they cause exaggerated pelvic anterior tilt (the person sticks his or her butt out and the lower back arches). The upper back curves and rounds, and the person’s chin can stick out and “lead” in front.
Sometimes tight hip flexors can begin to take over the work of the abdominal/postural muscles making it difficult to benefit from some abdominal or core exercises. Tight hip flexors cause the primary hip extensors, the gluteal group, to become lengthened and weaker.
Some Problems Associated with tight hip flexors
There are many people who don’t realize the cause of their problems are tight hip flexors.
The impact the hips have on the whole body never occurred to me until I saw the effect of tight hip flexors had on the health and well-being of many people that have found relief with this method.
Tight hip flexors can be the root cause of problems such as:
Nagging joint pains in your legs lower back or hips
Walking with discomfort
Hips locking up
Sluggishness in day to day life
Compromised Immune System
Loss of sexual performance
Lack of Explosiveness in the gym or sports
If any of these sound familiar to you, don’t worry because you’re not alone.
Tight hip flexors affect nearly everybody, but few realize the impact on your whole body.
Again, everything flows through the hips.
Think of the hips as a barometer. The health and flexibility of your hip muscles are an indicator of the strength and health of our whole body.
Which leads us to recommend a product that has provided massive relief to 1000s of people who have suffered with this problem.
INTRODUCING “UNLOCK YOUR HIP FLEXORS”
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.
Try to release one muscle before another and you’ll add to your tightness. Getting it wrong really can make it worse.
It’s why so many people give up trying to fix the problem themselves and believe incorrectly that they have to live with the problem. But hoping the problem will go away by not exercising is just as damaging.
To explain in more detail about this flow, let me introduce you to leading Kinesiologist and Injury Specialist Rick Kaselj, MS. Rick is “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.
I first met Rick when he helped me fix a shoulder problem. He was one of the few injury specialists I met who helped athletes by focusing on getting them back to training, rather than avoiding workouts.
Rick showed me what so many other injury specialists hadn’t – how to work through the right sequence of techniques to unlock the tension and tightness in my muscles to properly solve the problem.
Courtney and Lincoln
He’s the guy I turned to when my wife, Courtney, was struggling with pain and discomfort in her hips after the birth of our son Lincoln.
In the days and months following the birth, she experienced pain in her legs and discomfort when walking and sitting. She was struggling to sleep.
In just 15 minutes working with Rick, he’d successfully unlocked her hip flexors so she no longer felt any pain or discomfort that day. She was able to walk without experiencing the nagging pain in her pelvic area. She could sleep better and could start enjoying those precious days with a little one at home.
But Rick’s “flow” technique doesn’t only help those in pain.
At Critical Bench, our Head Strength Coach Chris Wilson felt his hip flexors were a little tight (from sitting and answering training questions on facebook too much) and tried the same routine Rick had used with my wife. Within days, Chris successfully increased his deadlift by 35 pounds to finally hit that 500 pound pull he had been training for. All because he got to experience the sequential flow of movements that Rick developed to release his hip flexors.
It’s not about the exercises.
THE POWER OF RICK’S TECHNIQUE LIES NOT ONLY IN WHAT TECHNIQUES ARE PERFORMED AND HOW WELL, BUT IN DOING THESE IN THE PROPER SEQUENCE.
DONE EFFECTIVELY, THE SEQUENTIAL FLOW WORKS WITH YOUR BODY TO ACTIVATE ITS NATURAL HEALING PROCESS, IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY WHILE ADDING STRENGTH AND VITALITY.
While many of the techniques were ones I already knew, doing the movements in the right order unravels all the tissues including muscle, fascia, connective tissue, and the joint capsule while breaking up scar tissue.
Using the right sequence kick starts an increase in blood flow to the area to clean out metabolites and lactic acid and reduces inflammation while nourishing and rejuvenating the area.
