Need To Loosen Your Hip Flexors? Learn These 10 Key Moves
Learn These 10 Key Moves You Need To Loosen Your Hip Flexors And Unlock The Hidden Power In Your Body
You train hard, you eat well…it should be enough to keep you in good health and physically and emotionally strong.
Yet, there is a danger lurking in our bodies that's not only hidden from us… but which even doctors are failing to identify.
It affects nearly everybody, no matter how active or sedentary you are, or how old or young you are.
This problem affects not only our body but our whole well-being.
And when I tell you what it is, you'll be shocked…
… because it's tight hip flexors.
You see, our hip flexors are the engine through which our body moves. They control balance, our ability to sit, stand, twist, reach, bend, walk and step.
Everything goes through the hips.
And when our hip flexors tighten it causes a lot of problems in ordinarily healthy and active people, like us.
Before I reveal how most people end up having tight hip flexors yet never realize it, let me introduce myself.
My name is Mike Westerdal and I'm a national best-selling fitness author, sports nutrition specialist, personal trainer, Iron Man magazine contributor and founder of the internet's longest-standing strength site, CriticalBench.com.
In a moment, I'll reveal to you the 10 Key Moves you need to loosen your hip flexors and unlock the hidden power in your body.
But first, let me explain just how deep-rooted the problem is.
Here's the truth: Most people don’t realize the cause of their problems is tight hip flexors.
The impact the hips had on the whole body never occurred to me until I saw the effect of tight hip flexors had on the health and well-being of my wife after she gave birth.
It was only then that I truly understood the magnitude of the problem.
We're not just talking about a bit of soreness; tight hip flexors are the root cause of problems such as:
- Nagging joint pains in your legs, lower back or hips
- Walking with discomfort
- Hips locking up
- Bad posture
- Trouble sleeping
- Sluggishness in day to day life
- High Anxiety
- Digestive problems
- Compromised Immune System
- Circulatory issues
- Loss of sexual performance
- Lack of Explosiveness in the gym or sports
If any of these sound familiar to you, don't worry because you're not alone.
Tight hip flexors affect nearly everybody, but few realize the impact on your whole body.
Again, everything flows through the hips.
Think of the hips as a barometer. The health and flexibility of your hip muscles are an indicator of the strength and health of our whole body.
AND AT THE VERY HEART OF THIS IS THE "HIDDEN" MOST POWERFUL SURVIVAL MUSCLE. WHEN THIS MUSCLE IS HEALTHY, WE ARE HEALTHY.
Your hips are the bridge between your upper body and lower body. They are at the center of your body's movement.
Sitting within the well of your hip and lower spine is the psoas major muscle, one of the two muscles that makes up the iliopsoas.
It’s often called the "mighty" psoas (pronounced so-az) for the many important functions it plays in the movement of your body.
The psoas is the only muscle in the human body connecting the upper body to the lower body.
The muscle attaches to the vertebrae of the lower spine, moves through the pelvis and connects to a tendon at the top of the femur. It also attaches to the diaphragm, so it’s connected to your breathing, and upon it sits all the major organs.
A functioning psoas muscle creates a neutral pelvic alignment, stabilizes the hips, supports the lower spine and abdomen, supports the organs in the pelvic and abdominal cavity and gives you greater mobility and core strength.
When it functions well, it has the power to…
- … help you achieve peak performance day after day after day.
- … rapidly drop ugly body fat that stubbornly clings to your body.
- … train harder, heavier and gain strength faster than you thought possible.
- … hit your peak of sexual health.
- … flood your mind and body with renewed energy and vigor.
Put simply, this muscle is the core of activity in your body. So, when it's out of balance or if the psoas tightens, there are serious consequences which flow throughout the body.
And there's one activity, in particular, that's the sworn enemy of your psoas muscle…
THE NO.1 ACTIVITY THAT'S MAKING YOU WEAKER,
FATTER AND IS KILLING YOUR SEX LIFE
It may be the most harmless activity known to man, but it's also one of the biggest dangers to your health.
Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from a tight psoas due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Weakness, shortening and tightness develops in the muscle through sitting for extended periods of time, poor sleep posture and even stress and tension.
HERE ARE 3 WAYS THAT SITTING IS KILLING YOUR PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH:
BULGING BELLY SYNDROME
Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you’re hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles. The real cause is likely to be tight psoas muscles, which cause the lower back to curve pushing out the stomach. When the psoas works properly it pulls the abdomen back tucking the tummy in, giving you a strong, flat stomach.
FAT LOSS INHIBITOR
As the body's "fight or flight" muscle, your psoas is deeply connected to our natural survival instinct. It instantly tightens in moments of danger to either protect you (in a fetal position) or help you run, fueled by the release of adrenaline. However, if your psoas is constantly tight, it signals to the body you are in constant danger, leading to overworking of the adrenal glands. When this happens, your immune system suffers and your body automatically switches into fat storing mode in anticipation of danger. Can’t shift that weight? Blame your hips also known as your "survival muscle".
LACK OF SEXUAL PERFORMANCE
Sitting all day causes your hips to become stuck in a forward thrust position. This leads to pulling on the lower back and decreased blood flow and circulation through the hips and to where it matters.
SITTING IS YOUR ENEMY IN THE QUEST TO DISCOVER PEAK HEALTH,
BECAUSE OF THE WIDE-RANGING IMPACT IT CAUSES TO YOUR MOST VITAL MUSCLE.
WHAT YOUR PHYSICIAN ISN'T TELLING YOU…
AND WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW
Diagnosing tight hip flexors is tricky.
If you've seen a therapist or physician, chances are they weren't able to pinpoint the issue.
Buried so deep within your abdomen, it's no wonder identifying it as the root cause of any of your symptoms is difficult to do.
It's why tight hip flexors are left undiagnosed and untreated for far too long, as physicians look for a simpler explanation.
So understand that this it's not your fault.
However, knowing this hands you the power to finally do something about it before it's too late.
Knowing you have tight hip flexors is one thing.
Knowing how to fix your hip flexors is another challenge altogether.
If you trust so-called experts on Youtube and online, they'll have you believe it's simply a case of holding a few static stretches for a period of time to try and lengthen the muscle.
Or rolling around with a tennis ball stuck to your hip (as if that will really make any difference).
It takes more than a tennis ball and foam roller to unlock your hip flexors…and doing it wrong could cause even MORE damage.
The reason few people manage to fix their hip flexors is simple.
It's really a hard area to reach.
If you see how the psoas is attached within your body, it's buried deep inside your core making it tough to access. It's a hard muscle to find, let alone train.
Static Stretching Has Its Place - But The Stretch You See Above Is the Best Stretch To Do In The Morning
So it's little wonder why trying to loosen it requires more than a simple static hip flexor stretch like the one below you've probably tried before.
You've probably found you're spending (or wasting) hours of your time stretching this way only to find it's having minimal effect.
That's because you need to attack the muscle from a variety of angles using a variety of exercise techniques and modalities in order to "unpack" the muscle in the right way.
The truth is, you can learn to release your tight hip flexors on your own.
If you think of your psoas as a combination safe lock, there are several numbers that will unlock it but they need to be entered in the right order.
There are a number of specific movements beyond simple static stretching you can use to unlock and loosen your hips, legs and back.
PNF is an acronym for proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. It is a technique where you are activating a specific muscle in order to relax the muscles around a joint so you can decrease the stiffness around a joint.
This is where you are activating the muscle around a joint and moving that joint through its full range of motion in a progressive manner. This leads to an increased range of motion around the joint, warming up of the muscle around the joint and improved circulation around the joint. Think of high knees or butt kicks.
3-DIMENSIONAL CORE STABILITY EXERCISES:
With these exercises we are targeting the muscle in all planes of movement so the core and abdominal muscles have good activation, endurance and strength in all planes of movement which leads to a decrease in unnecessary damaging stress on joints.
In these exercises, we are targeting the joint and doing movements and exercises that help the joint function optimally. This allows a joint to move more freely.
In this unique technique, we are targeting the tissue that muscles are surrounded in and working on loosening and lengthening the fascia. Few people understand the negative effect this tissue can have on your body.
MUSCLE ACTIVATION MOVEMENTS:
Due to all of our sitting and daily technology use, many of our muscles are not working properly. With this technique, we're targeting those muscles that are off and activate them in order to help the body move more efficiently.
Now you know the specific techniques you need to unlock your hip flexors, the next question is how to combine these in the most effective way. Please don't be overwhelmed by the "Shop Talk" above because…
Like unfolding a sheet or unpacking a parcel, opening up the muscles in your hips requires it to be done in the right order.
Try to release one muscle before another and you'll add to your tightness. Getting it wrong really can make it worse.
It's why so many people give up trying to fix the problem themselves and believe incorrectly that they have to live with the problem. But hoping the problem will go away by not exercising is just as damaging.
To explain in more detail about this flow, let me introduce you to leading Kinesiologist and Injury Specialist Rick Kaselj, MS.
Rick is "THE" guy fitness professionals go to when they want to learn about the latest techniques to help their own clients. He's given over 352 live presentations to more than 8,152 health professionals in the US and Canada.
I first met Rick when he helped me fix a shoulder problem. He was one of the few injury specialists I met who helped athletes by focusing on getting them back to training, rather than avoiding workouts.
Rick showed me what so many other injury specialists hadn't - how to work through the right sequence of techniques to unlock the tension and tightness in my muscles to properly solve the problem.
He's the guy I turned to when my wife, Courtney, was struggling with pain and discomfort in her hips after the birth of our son Lincoln.
In the days and months following the birth, she experienced pain in her legs and discomfort when walking and sitting. She was struggling to sleep.
In just 15 minutes working with Rick, he'd successfully unlocked her hip flexors so she no longer felt any pain or discomfort that day. She was able to walk without experiencing the nagging pain in her pelvic area. She could sleep better and could start enjoying those precious days with a little one at home.
But Rick's "flow" technique doesn’t only help those in pain.
At Critical Bench, our Head Strength Coach Chris Wilson felt his hip flexors were a little tight (from sitting and answering training questions on facebook too much) and tried the same routine Rick had used with my wife. Within days, Chris successfully increased his deadlift by 35 pounds to finally hit that 500 pound pull he had been training for. All because he got to experience the sequential flow of movements that Rick developed to release his hip flexors.
It’s not about the exercises.
THE POWER OF RICK'S TECHNIQUE LIES NOT ONLY IN WHAT TECHNIQUES ARE PERFORMED AND HOW WELL, BUT IN DOING THESE IN THE PROPER SEQUENCE.
DONE EFFECTIVELY, THE SEQUENTIAL FLOW WORKS WITH YOUR BODY TO
ACTIVATE ITS NATURAL HEALING PROCESS, IMPROVE FLEXIBILITY
WHILE ADDING STRENGTH AND VITALITY.
While many of the techniques were ones I already knew, doing the movements in the right order unravels all the tissues including muscle, fascia, connective tissue, and the joint capsule while breaking up scar tissue.
Using the right sequence kick starts an increase in blood flow to the area to clean out metabolites and lactic acid and reduces inflammation while nourishing and rejuvenating the area.
I've seen, with my own eyes, the power of Rick's techniques on my wife and our Head Strength Coach Chris Wilson.
That's why I asked Rick to share with you the very same program so you too can help to unlock your hip flexors and gain all the benefits.

Unlock Your Tight Hamstrings
"The Key To A Healthy Back And Perfect Posture"
First and foremost, if the muscles of the hamstrings are tight, they are more susceptible to tearing. No matter if you're an elite athlete, stay-at-home-mom or average Joe, a muscle tear in the back of your legs can take months to heal and recover from making life very challenging.
In today's world, most people make a living from a seated position along with sitting in their car and while at home. All of that sitting over time increases tightness in the hamstrings. Having tight hamstrings causes the hips and pelvis to rotate back which flattens the lower back causing lower back pain and poor posture.
In a more perfect world, everyone would get regular sports massage to help improve the muscle tissue quality of the hamstrings by increasing blood flow but unfortunately for most of us, that isn't always possible.
However, there is something all people can do by themselves which takes only minutes per day to help improve muscle condition and loosen up those tight hamstrings instantly. In a matter of minutes, you can begin to reverse the damage to the hamstrings and greatly impact how you feel.
This super effective routine will not only reduce the likelihood of injury but will also improve performance, correct posture and alleviate pain in the lower back.
The 7-Day Anti-Inflammatory Diet
"Automatically Heal Your Body with The Right Foods"
The Unlock Your Hip Flexors program is designed to bring you all the benefits of looser hip flexors with greater strength, power and flexibility.
But its benefits are multiplied when combined with a holistic diet to naturally alleviate pains, aches, soreness and stiffness by tackling inflammation caused by injury or environmental toxins in our food and water.
Your diet is one of the major causes of inflammatory responses leading to health deteriorating.
You can instantly improve your body's response to inflammation by choosing the right foods that work with your body to stimulate your natural healing response.
The 7-Day Anti-Inflammatory Diet is a Done-For-You nutrition program featuring diet recommendations, meal plans, shopping lists and supplement tips to help your body automatically heal itself.
In as little as 24 hours, your body will switch on its natural healing process rather than causing pain and inflammation which can lead to many chronic diseases and health problems.
Exactly how to target those hard-to-reach muscles with detailed, step-by-step walk-through videos of every single Key Move (Rick's simple, clear demonstration of these powerful moves will help them become second nature in no time).
The No.1 single most important element of human body posture and why your hips hold the key to peak performance (if this fails, your performance is drastically affected whether running, walking or even just standing).
The true impact of your body's “Mighty Muscle” and how it is really affecting your physical, emotional and spiritual well being (you'll be shocked how big an impact this has on your everyday life).
How your body's natural survival response has been tricked into permanent "danger" mode, and how you can switch it off to see faster fat loss and more energy (the reasoning behind this is crazy, but completely true).
The main causes for your psoas muscle to change structure, a major danger sign for your body (any change, however minimal, has an overwhelming impact that ripples across your body causing other muscle groups to compensate).
Why you're just as likely to be affected by this problem if you're a balls-to-the-wall gym rat training 24/7 or a couch potato.
Why, if you have a desk job or drive a car for long periods, you need to act NOW.
The shocking reason your intense core workouts could be doing more harm than good if you haven't loosened your hips first (and why crunches and sit-ups won’t do a thing to help).
Why strong legs and glutes are important to your overall heath and why you need to prevent too much flexion of your hips.
How trauma, injury and stress can build up within your posture and how it will ultimately affect your psychological state.
Why the "cure" isn't simply to stop sitting (you need to be more pro-active in targeting the muscles affected to undo the damage from sitting all day).
Why the damage is most likely ALREADY done and exactly what you need to do to redress those deep-seeded imbalances before the damage becomes permanent (if this doesn't kick you into action, nothing will…)
Why "comfort" and "support" are the enemies of our natural physiology and how we can start to move back towards our natural posture (forget pillows, support cushions and belts.)
How tight hips affect your sexual performance through decreased blood flow and circulation and what you can do about it right now to achieve peak sexual health again.
Why some guys end up with "old-guy butt syndrome" that isn't sexy but also inevitably leads to hip pain and how to avoid it by loosening the hips.
The 2 situations you NEED to be aware of when training your glutes to ensure they're properly activated for maximum athletic performance.
How to clear your mind and re-energize your thinking simply through learning how to relax your psoas muscle (this alone will help you wipe stress from your mind in an instant).
Plus much more…
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT
UNLOCK YOUR HIP FLEXORS
Stronger & Faster Than Ever
"Being an athlete all my life and having endured multiple knee surgeries due to blowing out ACL's in both knees, I later started to develop a hip issue in my right hip due to the years of wear and tear. It actually got so bad it was hard for me to perform as an athlete as well as be a productive coach for my clients.
After getting an MRI to have it checked out, I realized I had a degenerative arthritic condition in the hip that is not reversible. Surgery was not an option I wanted to go through so I contacted Rick Kaselj to see if he had something for me. When I started to apply the strategies from Unlock Your Hip Flexors it helped me re-balance my pelvis and hip joint to where I couldn't even tell I had an issue anymore.
These days I'm stronger and faster than ever and still competing in sports. Rick gave me the ability to perform at my highest level as a coach and regain the athletic ability I had lost over the years from wear and tear. I've been using Rick's strategies for years to help myself manage and recover from injuries as well as countless members of the fitness community. I couldn't recommend this product enough!"

You Need Flexible Hips to Live a Long Healthy Life
"I have known Rick Kaselj since college. Since then I have gone to Chiropractic college and become a Diplomate of the International College of Applied Kinesiology and a Diplomate in Clinical Nutrition. As a result I have come to some important conclusions about how the body works. Hip flexibility, mobility and strength is one of the most important things you can do to keep your overall body healthy. The way we moved thousands of years ago is our natural state, which requires flexible and mobile hips.
I was excited to here about Rick Kaselj’s Unlock Your Hip Flexors program and have read the manual and watched the videos. I was very impressed with the content. I implemented the concepts and program into my practice with my clients.
Rick has developed a comprehensive system to unlock your hips and restore movement the way it should be. Everyone could benefit from Unlock Your Hip Flexors. The two most important things to live a long healthy live is good quality whole food and great movement and which requires great hip mobility. I cannot recommend this program enough."

Helped Me Deadlift 500 Pounds
"What if I told you that you could increase your deadlift by 35 pounds in a week? You'd think I was nuts, but that's exactly what I experienced. Rick Kaselj worked with me personally to help me loosen my hip flexors and the explosiveness that was unlocked help me finally hit that 500 lb pull I've been training for.
If you do any kind of explosive lifting Unlock Your Hip Flexors can definitely help you add pounds to your max!"

Don't Have a Personal Trainer? No Problem!
"I’m not a fitness professional, just a 62 year old guy who came across your website looking for help with several physical issues I have been experiencing.
As a former college basketball player I found it discouraging that no one could seem to help me with my lower back problems and more recently my Glutes and Hip flexors. That was until I found your site and ordered your exercise program which has dramatically improved each one of my conditions!
The Unlock Your Hip Flexors program is easy to order and easy to download, no waiting for a delivery. The video presentation and visuals in the exercise program give me confidence that I am doing the exercises correctly which for me is key with no personal trainer. As a former Div 1 college athlete the programs work really well for me! Keep up the good work!"

Allows Me To Workout Hard Without Pain
"I came across Rick Kaselj a few years back when I was looking for something to help with my painful piriformis syndrome pain which I had been suffering with for over a year. I watch one of his YouTube videos and the advice he gave in the video helped get rid of my piriformis and hip pain. Ever since then I have been following Rick on a daily basis with YouTube videos, blog posts and articles.
When I heard Rick was working on a new program to help unlock your hips, I asked him if I could buy a copy in advance. I have been going through the videos and manual in the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program over the last few weeks. The short yet efficient sequence that Rick put together has helped loosen up my hips, decrease back tightness and allowed me to workout even harder. After getting such great benefit from the program, I have also started giving it to my clients and they have reported similar benefits.
Thanks for everything you do Rick and I know if you have a stiff, tight or painful hip then Unlock Your Hip Flexors will help you."

Get The Edge Over the Competition
"If you are an athlete that relies on explosiveness in your sport than you must be aware of the #1 road block in your performance... tight hip flexors.
It's the hidden killer of success. Athletes that sit all day for their day job are causing terrible alignment in their hips... which wreaks havoc on other areas of their body. Improving the mobility in your hips will give you the extra edge over the competition and improve the effectiveness of your workouts.
Mike and Rick's Unlock Your Hip Flexors program is the most complete, systematic approach that I've ever seen on the market. The program will help take your athleticism to the next level no matter if you are a top professional or just starting out."

Unlock Your Hips to Unlock Your Squat"
"I’ve had so many personal training clients come and see me over the years that can’t squat properly, it drives me mad! This is mostly due to their hip mobility or lack of it! If you sit all day, have hips that are stiff, suffer from mysterious hip aches or struggle to do a perfect squat, then you need to check out Rick Kaselj and his Unlock Your Hip Flexors program.
In my experience tight hips, ache hips and poor squatting if not addressed will lead to more serious injuries and pain further down the line, which is why I whole heartedly recommend Rick’s Unlock Your Hip Flexors program. Get it!"

FAQS ABOUT UNLOCK YOUR HIP FLEXORS
Q: How is this different from other hip flexibility programs?
A: What makes Rick's program unique is knowing how to unravel the tricky layers of tension with the very difficult psoas muscle in order to effectively loosen and train it.
Rick's one-of-a-kind sequential flow is your surest path to looser, stronger and healthier hips.
Q: Why are you selling this so cheap? What's the catch?
A: There is none. We're so pleased with the number of our customers who have made the investment in this program and have enjoyed life-changing results.
Our aim is to make this available to as many guys as possible, firstly to welcome more people to our CriticalBench.com audience and secondly because we're celebrating hitting a quarter million fans on Facebook.
Q: How long will it take me to do the program?
A: The program is designed to take between 10-15 minutes in total to complete.
We recommended adding the program as a daily practice to get the best results over a longer period of time. You may wish to add this program before or after your regular gym session or use it independently.
Q: How long until I see results?
A: Although everyone is different and results may vary, we know from experience how quickly it's possible to feel and see a difference.
For some it may be as soon as their first session; for others it may take a few sessions to really start seeing the benefits. Again, it depends on the body in question.
Q: Who is this program suitable for?
A: This program is suitable for you if you're currently suffering from inexplicable back, hip or joint pain.
The exercises themselves are not strenuous and are designed to be carried out by anyone, regardless of ability.
Q: Can I perform the Sequential Flow if I have had a hip replacement?
A: The answer to this is very individual. It depends on what type of hip replacement surgery you had and how you have recovered from it the surgery. It is best to ask your surgeon or doctor to see which exercises of the sequential flow you should do or avoid.
Q: I want to start right away. Do I have to wait for the book and videos to come in the mail?
A: You don’t have to wait, you can have access in just a few moments. Unlock Your Hip Flexors is a digital product so don’t worry about shipping fees or delaying results.

A: It will work. But to make you feel better, if for any reason you're not happy you’ll get a full refund, no questions asked. We stand behind this product 110% and have no problem offering a money back guarantee.
Q: Do I need a gym membership or any special equipment?
A: No. You can do this routine anywhere in a very small space. All you need is a wall to lean on for support for a couple of the movements.
