But first, he will go through the deep-rooted problem that tight hips are holding you back. 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 Mike 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 he truly understood the magnitude of the problem. He’s talking about: nagging joint pains in your legs, lower back or hips; walking with discomfort,… Tight hip flexors affect nearly everybody, but few realize the impact on your whole body.
The No.1 activity that’s making you weaker, fatter
It may be the most harmless activity known to man, but it’s also one of the biggest dangers to your health. Sitting. Even if you’re the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from a tight pose 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
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
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.
- 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
