Hip flexor or the psoas is the muscle that connects your upper body to your lower body. This 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 serves as a connection to the diaphragm, so even your breathing is very much dependent on it. All the major organs are also resting on this one muscle. A functioning psoas muscle works in creating a neutral pelvic alignment. It stabilizes the hips, supports the lower spine and abdomen. It provides support to the organs in the pelvic and abdominal cavity and gives you mobility around the hip region, which is responsible for you being able to walk at all!

What is the big deal with hip flexors?

You might say that you are fit, healthy and do regular workouts, stretches and so on to keep yourself in shape. But the authors say that working on the hip flexor is a way trickier thing and hence simple stretching is not enough. It is a very important and yet incredibly deep seated muscle which is crucial for your well being. The authors of this program say that we are doing ourselves a great damage by sitting all the time. People who work at an office usually have to sit for hours and this results in the hip flexors becoming stiff. The book warns that stiff hip flexors can lead to a number of health issues like nagging joint pains, discomfort while walking, bad hips and even problems in the circulatory and digestive systems. It can also lead to sleep issues, anxiety, a lingering lethargy that just doesn’t refuse to leave you and hence leads to an unhealthy lifestyle.
