444 The No-Stretching Guide to Tight Hip Flexors
Chronic hip tightness, lower-back pain and poor posture are often attributed to “tight” psoas, short hip flexors and weak glutes. However, this concept is largely based upon industry myth rather than reality. During this session, you’ll learn how understanding the anatomy of the psoas and hip flexors is instrumental for your client with tight hips. Additionally, you’ll learn how to determine whether you need to stretch your client’s hip flexors or not. You’ll leave with a better understanding how to best activate, lengthen and strengthen both the hip flexors and glutes while improving posture and movement quality.
