Unlock Your Hip Flexors

What is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint pain, back pain, anxiety & looking fat?

I bet you can’t guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat.
This “hidden survival muscle” in your body can boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when in its optimal state.

Is it…
a) Abs

b) Chest

c) Glutes

d) Hip Flexors 

Did you guess D?? Well, I can tell you that if this “hidden” most powerful primal muscle is healthy, then we are healthy!

So what can you do if it seems it is the tightest muscle you are contending with? Sometimes hip pain is muscular and caused by a trigger point in the muscles. You can get relief to your hip pain by massaging the muscles that are responsible of harboring the trigger points.
To do this, search for tender spots from muscles near your hip joint, and massage them through out the day in small sessions.
If you find a spot that amplifies or reproduces the pain symptom that’s troubling you when pressed, you will know you are on the right track. Be sure to give that spot extra attention. Don’t neglect other spots entirely for the sake of that one that feels great relief.
The goal in this is that you experience pain relief and the spots become less tender.

Only massage every few days. You will want to make your judgment on its effectiveness after the muscles have had time to go back to normal working length. Within a week or so you should be able to tell if it helps or not, and if it’s worth pursuing any further.

For the massage, you probably want to use tennis ball against a floor or a foam roller if you have one. This allows you to reach and self massage virtually any muscle in your body effectively.
Here is a list of muscles that are generally attributed to hip pain.
This is not a fully comprehensive list, but it will help you get started.

Gluteus minimus
Gluteus maximus
Quadratus lumborum
tensor latae fasciae
vastus lateralis
vastus intermedialis

If you don’t have an anatomy book, you can also do a picture search with your favorite search engine. For a more comprehensive guide to unlocking your hip flexors to the fullest extent, please visit this site.
