PSOAS Strengthener

What Is the Purpose of the Psoas Muscle?

As you can see on Coach @yogi.ish here, the psoas connects from your lumbar spine and angles downward and connects to your upper thigh bone. Structurally, it’s one of the deepest muscles in your core. The purpose of your psoas muscles is primarily to extend your low back and flex your thigh bone towards your chest. Common exercises that rely heavily on the psoas are walking and running, yet it assists in movements such as squatting, deadlifting, sitting, and picking something off the floor! 🔥

How Do You Strengthen Your Psoas?

Here’s how to get the strongest contraction from this muscle with this exercise: 👇

𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽 𝟭: Place a circular resistance band around your feet
𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽 𝟮: Stand tall and put your hips into anterior tilt (meaning send that booty to the sky)
𝗦𝘁𝗲𝗽 𝟯: Lift one knee as high as you can, then the other, all the while keeping that anterior tilt and your hips level
