A strong and flexible large lumbar muscle improves your mobility and prevents injuries and back pain
Despite its immense importance for our overall mobility, most people have never heard of the existence of the psoas.
The psoas muscle group runs in the lower back and connects the upper body with the pelvis. It provides for an upright gait, straight shoulders, the correct position of the legs and spine and is responsible for the flexion of the hip and the mobility of the lumbar spine.
This book describes the scope and meaning of the psoas and shows mobility exercises from various sports disciplines such as yoga and Pilates as well as stretching and self-massages with a hard foam roll (Myofascial Release).
The 50 continuously illustrated exercises, described in step-by-step instructions, strengthen the core muscles, improve posture, increase mobility and ensure an all-round healthy and strong psoas.
