Washboard 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 workhorses 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 readers how to transform this vulnerable spot into the powerful core of their being. Vital for everyday movements such as walking, running and bending over, the psoas must be properly maintained or it can easily become strained and cause debilitating pain during these simple movements. Every year, millions of people are treated for lumbar and lower back injuries and many of them are caused by a weak or injured psoas muscle. Packed with simple daily exercises that help prevent unpleasant back and hip injuries by strengthening and stretching the psoas, this book features at-home exercises that use only minimal equipment like a foam roller or a sturdy wall. Each movement is accompanied by detailed step-by-step photos that ensure the reader does the exercise effectively and safely.
