You train hard, you eat well…it should be enough to keep you in good health and physically and emotionally strong but yet you still feel off, a bit flat and don’t have the energy levels you would expect – Does this sounds anyway familiar?
This is the way that I was feeling and as I researched it many thousands of others who had felt similar and suffered in the below areas:
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.
I had been to the doctor and even the physio for a sore back but they could not pinpoint anything. It seemed to affect young and old and it not only affects your body but your whole well-being. When I found out what it was I was shocked – really – no way – it can’t be that simple.
It is tight hip flexors – yes your hips.
I found out that hip flexors are the engine through which our body moves. They control balance, our ability to sit, stand, twist, reach, bend, walk and step and so forth and with a bad lower back pain I was clutching at straws to try to get some relief.
I stumbled upon Mike Westerdal who is a fitness author and personal trainer involved with www.criticalbench.com plus the co-author of this programme and got myself the Unlock your hip flexors PDF and videos and within weeks some great relief and results and only felt obliged to spread the word with an Unlock your hip flexor review. So Enough about me and let’s focus on the product.
You can go directly to the site in HERE to read in full detail about what may cause the pains and so forth that you can relate to and get a copy now but stay tuned for a high-level overview or what you get with the unlock your hip flexors program.
So what is Unlock Your Hip Flexors?
So what you get is an actual electronic PDF which contains the programme and links to videos also – all to unlock your hips and answer the question you are probably shouting at the screen now, as I was, how do I loosen my hip flexors?
There are basically 10 key movements/ stretches that you need to perform to Unlock your hip flexors – the holy grail of hip flexor exercises.
And you will be educated on the pivotal muscle in the body psoas (pronounced so-az) The psoas is the only muscle in the human body connecting the upper body to the lower body. FACT!
And guess what is killing us all and making us sore and stiff – SITTING!
So sitting, especially slouched over a desk, is your new enemy!
As they stress in the programme and what we all know anyone can loosen up or stretch your back or hip muscles but the key to UNLOCKING YOUR HIP FLEXORS as discovered by Injury Specialist Rick Kaselj ( yes the other author) and the USP of this product is the sequence or flow in which to do these various exercises.
What they call the SEQUENTIAL FLOW METHOD.
The way they phrase it “Like unfolding a sheet or unpacking a parcel, opening up the muscles in your hips requires it to be done in the right order.”
So it not only comes down to the technique in performing the exercises or stretches but in doing them in the proper sequence or order. These are some advanced hip flexor secrets that you get from the course.
How long does the routine take?
The full routine takes about 15 mins max so not very time-consuming.
An example of some of the stretches involved are:
3Dimensional 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.
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.
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.
The full list is obviously within the programme found HERE
So what you get in the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Programme is:
UNLOCK YOUR HIP FLEXORS DVD VIDEO
