You may not be an athlete, but don’t you want to unleash your inner athlete potential?
Regardless of the sport, athletes want to perform at their best every single time they take the field, the court or the ice. In order to do that, they must have healthy, strong and mobile hips: Hips that function without pain, tightness or lack of mobility.
A balance in strength exists through the hip flexors, the iliopsoas group and gluteus group which helps keep the body moving and performing at its absolute best.
The ‘power zone’ lies at the center of the human body. Sure, the arms and legs are super important for any person or athlete, but the source of true power resides within the hips.
Athletes from all backgrounds across the world spend a great deal of time working on the balance of strength within their hip area. They stretch, strengthen, massage, or anything else that will help them improve hip function.
That’s why in athletes, the messaging that goes from the lower body to the upper body and back again has less roadblocks, less stress and the signals are stronger.
When stronger signals are passing from head to toe in an athlete, their power production is improved dramatically. And when you increase power, you achieve peak performance health.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case for many people. For them, sitting is a large part of their lives and the center of the body is restricted and stressed out. The good news is you could release your inner athlete by lengthening your hip flexors and undo all of that damage from sitting so much over the years.
Well, that’s all for now. Please leave a comment below, I would love to hear your thoughts!
