A relatively unknown muscle called the Psoas muscle is responsible for lower back pain experienced by many cyclist. The Psoas muscle is attached to the inside of the spine of the lower back. Tightness of the Psoas can result in lower back pain.
The Psoas muscle forms part of a group of muscles called the hip flexors who's function is to pull the upper legs towards the body when the body is fixed or to pull the body to the legs when the legs is fixed.
Regular stretching of the Psoas muscle is important for athletes doing long distance training on the bike and for those who sit over 10+ hours a day. How do you stretch the Psoas?
Enter Adarsh Williams.
In his video below, Adarsh uses the Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) technique to stretch the Psoas. The sequence you see also strengthens the Abdonimals, Gluteus Maximus (buttocks), and Hamstrings.
