Do you sit frequently? If the answer is yes, you need to work on you psoas. The psoas, technically psoas major, is a hip flexor that starts at our back and inserts into our thigh bone(femur). When we sit for prolonged periods of time, this muscle gets brutally short. It's very rare to work with a CrossFit athlete in Atlanta or around the country for that matter that doesn't have problems with this muscle group.
We can use some common strength and conditioning equipment to help get into our psoas and reset our pelvic position. Give it a try guys and don't forget to test your squat before and after you mobilize.
It's time to take your psoas back!
