The 5 top all-round exercises for your hips
The most important exercises for a flexible hip and our mental well-being.
Did you know that your soul has its own muscle? It is the psoas muscle, which is a component of our hip muscles.
A free and flexible hip is not only very beneficial for many sports, but also for our health. Many back problems are caused by our hips. The hip represents the connection between the upper and lower body, so to speak. It is therefore a central element of our body.
The psoas muscle is one of the most important hip muscles. From an anatomical point of view, it originates on the right and left in the lower part of the lumbar spine, runs through the lower abdomen and pelvis and finally ends at the upper end of the thigh bone. Thus, the psoas muscle is the only muscle that is a direct connection between your spine and your legs!
Without the psoas muscle you would not be able to climb stairs or walk. Without it, you wouldn't even be able to stand upright because it supports the spine. In addition, the psoas has an effect on blood circulation, organ function and your diaphragmatic breathing.
But why is the psoas muscle also called the muscle of the soul?
The reason is that it performs important functions between the diaphragm and the pelvic floor. It can release tension, balance your nervous system, regulate your breathing, and give you a sense of protection, stability and well-being. As the familiar and supporting muscle of your lower abdominal organs, the psoas senses irregularities and is therefore also called the second brain.
When your body is constantly flooded with cortisol and adrenaline due to stress, the psoas muscle reacts with excessive tension, which causes the diaphragm to work even in excessive tension. The body falls into the escape-fight mode. If this state remains for a longer period of time without relaxation, the psoas muscle remains in a hardened permanent state and suggests a permanent danger to your body.
In the end, this can often lead to inexplicable back pain, sciatica or digestive problems.
