Mobility Monday: Extension of a Psoas Flavor

The Psoas.  This deep hip flexor muscle is to quote Kelly "the filet mignon" of the human body, isn't that a pretty picture.  At the same time it can cause you all kinds of problems with your low back and your hips due to its origin and insertion points.  Especially if you are in a seated position all day you the psoas can help you compensate in moving around and sitting forward to reach something at your desk like Kelly explains here.  Check out this simple stretch to get the psoas moving.

Things It Helps:
-Tightness in front of hips
-Tightness from sitting a lot
-Low back pain
-"Man Belly"
