Bolster 'Psoas-emphasis' Variant of Hip Flexor stretch

Recommended Posts

Hi Every body,

is a video I filmed of a variant of the bolster hip flexor I was playing around with today, that targetted the deep hip flexor (psoas), in me at least.. Some others felt not so much in the psoas (mainly rectus femoris), so I thought I would put it up for people to try - it works really well for me.

As I explain in the video, it does not use the standard contract-relax approach, but more a modulation of the tension in different muscles and a sequential contraction style stretch. It uses movement above the site of stretch to get the actually stretch (as the psoas is kept contracted, so that you don't lose the sensation-contraction).

Let me know what you think.


p.s thank you to Graeme for the initial inspiration for this stretch!
