Quick Tip: Do you know why your psoas is tight?

Posted by on May 25, 2016 in Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

Sitting can be tough on our body, primarily because our psoas muscle is kept in a shortened position when we sit or lean forward, which for most of us can be a majority of our day. It is especially important for those who consistently keep their psoas in a shortened position for prolonged periods of time like cyclists, uber drivers, or desk workers, to regularly stretch this muscle to counteract these effects.

This week Jenny shows us a different way to stretch and lengthen our psoas with a lunge style stretch. While there are many ways to stretch the psoas, it is great to continuously diversify your stretches to meet your current needs and goals. Try this stretch out and see if it works for you!
