Most of us are working at desk or driving in a car for work which means that you are sitting most of the day. Sitting=tight hip flexors. It's the most common mobility issue I see with my clients. It makes sense-if you are keeping a muscle in a "flexed" position 8 hours a day, 5 days a week it's bound to get tight. Unfortunately this leads to your booty becoming inactive and lazy--nobody wants that! Not only does it prevent you from fully engaging your glutes during a workout, it also leads to injuries like lower back pain and runners knee.

I know you don't want a lazy ass and you're thinking, "how do I fix this!?" Don't worry--I'm here to help you out!
The solution involves 2 steps: 1)Mobility Work 2) Strengthening the "lazy" or under-active muscles.
Here is a link to the TWC News segment where I discuss all of this!
