I have been more comfortable sleeping at night and my belly doesn't have a bulge as much, while I have nearly zero body fat my belly was always a dread spot for me because no matter what I did it always looked like I had a large belly, by stretching my hip flexor muscles they have become less tight which is flattened my belly. While I lost no weight because of this it has helped my self-confidence and appearance a lot!
What is the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program?
First off, this program just seems weird. I mean, really. What is a hip flexor and how do you "unlock" it?
I am going to give you an in-depth look at it then I will give you my thoughts. I like to give the facts first, then my opinion.
Unlock your hip flexors is a program that is designed to teach you about your hip flexor muscle and how you can stretch it out, doing this can have a large number of benefits which are explained inside the program. You can click the button below to check it out from the official website.
What Is A Hip Flexor?
Your hip flexors or psoas - are a group of muscles in your hip area which allow you to move your legs up towards your body, allowing us to walk and do other forms of movement. In fact, this group of muscles allows most of our forms of movement. Because of this, hip flexors are extremely important to us for these reasons. However, they are also easily damaged.
With today's lifestyle which includes a lot of sitting, our hip flexors are actually not used. If you spend a lot of time sitting or just have a sedentary lifestyle then your hip flexors will actually weaken and will become tighter. Both of these are major issues, but a tight hip flexor is actually very bad for our health. This is the main point the program is trying to fix.
Your hip flexor helps to pull your legs towards your torso, bending at the hips. When you are sitting, the hip flexors get ZERO use. And unfortunately for muscles you either use them, or you lose them.
When your hip flexors are tight this can lead toseveral lifestyle issues as well as health problems. The main lifestyle issue is a vicious cycle, tight hip flexors can cause a limited range of motion which then leads to more sitting and a more sedentary lifestyle.
On the health effects, tight hip flexors can cause poor posture, lower back, and hip pain, as well as injuries. Your Hip flexors need to be stretched out and be worked out on a daily basis. For a more in-depth read on hip flexors click here.
Tight muscles are a huge health problem, when I ran cross country in High School one of the most important aspects of staying in top shape was to stretch before and especially after a workout. Our coach also wanted us to just stretch occasionally throughout the day. Stretching has many amazing health benefits.
The main reason for this is that muscles really need to be stretched out to remain healthy and strong.
Tight muscles are much more likely to tear, even from low-intensity workouts. Think of your muscles (very slightly) like some Laffy taffy. If you put it in the fridge you can bite it or break it extremely easily. Whereas if you leave it in the car on a sunny warm day, it can stretch to infinity. Your muscles are rather similar. When they are stretched and loose they are very flexible and can take a lot of abuse. But when they are tight they are much more likely to rip.
The muscles of the hip are no different physically however, they are quite tricky to properly stretch safely and fully. I'm sure you enjoy the feeling of stretching your hip area as I do in the morning or after a long car ride! It feels great! Now think about how good it will feel to get a full stretch there, not to mention how loose and comfortable your hip area will feel too.
This is exactly what Rick Kaselj's Unlock Your Hip Flexors Guide does, I have tried it and must say I really do feel more at ease. Before checking this out my lower back felt strained and I could never relax it, but it was because my muscles were too tight because I never stretched them. I also never knew how badly my tight muscles were affecting my body until I read Rick's guide. I feel better and educated enough that I thought it was important to let my readers know, so let's begin.
Problems With Tight Hip Flexors
There is a multitude of problems that arise with having tight psoas.
- Bulging Belly - Hip flexors are the opposite of our abdominal muscles. Your abs pull your lower body up and the hip flexors pull them down. If you are trying to get a six-pack of abs and are doing crunches or other workouts incorrectly you might be working out your hip flexors instead which will pull your belly down. Giving you a larger belly but not fat. Also, this pulling down of your stomach puts a lot of pressure on your lower back which can cause a lot of strains - especially as we age. Even if you don't work out your hip flexors like that, your muscles will get tighter over time if they aren't properly used. Which can also lead to the above.

Why Would You Need to Buy This When You Can Get Stretching Info For Free?
This was my first question. Who would buy this when you can just google hip flexor stretching exercises?
So I tried that and found a lot of junk. That's when it hit me, free information through helpful a lot of the time is usually low quality. Do you really want low-quality information on something as important as your muscles? One tear and you are out of commission for a long time.
The main thing to consider is proper form. Doing exercises and doing exercises with proper form is totally different. Poor form the best case is just less effective, but it's usually more severe which is causing injuries.
