I'm Dave Dreeas, here at Arizona Training Lab in Phoenix, Arizona. And, I'm here to demonstrate a couple exercises for a tight psoas. The psoas is the only muscle that connects from the spine to the lower body. It's important, because we end up sitting often, which causes our hip flexors to become tight. That can create lower back pain, or leg pain. So, here are a couple exercises that you can do to help stretch out the psoas. For the first psoas stretch, you're going to place your right leg flat on the bench. You're going to take your left leg and you're going to place that as far forward as you can up towards your head. Make sure that that front leg is flat on the ground. You're then going to reach back and you're going to grab your right leg with your right arm, pulling it as tight as you can. You should feel that stretch along the psoas and your quadricep muscles. Hold for 15 to 20 seconds, then release. Avoid bouncing. The most popular psoas exercise is one from a lunge position. You're going to have your right knee out in front of you in a 90 degree angle. Your left knee is going to be on the ground behind you. You're going to tighten that left glute and you're going to sink your hips down, keeping your core nice and tight. You should feel that stretch along your quad muscles and inner thigh. You will hold this for 15 to 20 seconds, and then you'll switch to the other leg. Stretching a tight psoas can help alleviate lower back pain, and lower leg pain.
