A complete guide to preventing back and hip injuries by strengthening the muscle group connecting your upper and lower bodyWashboard abs and bulging biceps may get all the glory at the gym, but the psoas muscle is the true hero of a strong, healthy body. Connecting the lower spine to the hips and legs, the iliopsoas muscle group is the unsung workhorse of good posture and injury prevention, yet is overlooked by traditional strength training. With targeted information and exercises that zero in on the psoas, this book shows how to transform this vulnerable spot into the powerful core of your being.Vital for simple, everyday movements such as walking, running and bending over, the psoas can easily become strained. Every year, millions of people are treated for lumbar and lower back injuries, many of them caused by a weak or injured psoas muscle. Featuring workouts for rehabbing from injury as well as building strength and flexibility, this book offers a way to make sure that doesn't happen to you.The straightforward daily exercises use only minimal equipment like a foam roller or a sturdy wall and each movement is accompanied by detailed step-by-step photos that ensure you do the exercise effectively.
