Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review

Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review

Unlock Your Hip Flexors is an exercise program that focuses specifically on loosening your hip flexor muscles, also known as the psoas. It was created by injury specialist Rick Kaselj and best-selling fitness author and personal trainer Mike Westerdal.

According to Kaselj and Westerdal this one simple muscle could very well be the root cause of a lot of health problems, including joint pain, bad posture, sluggishness, bulging belly syndrome and a host of others.

In this review of ‘Unlock Your Hip Flexors’ we’ll cover what the program is all about, who it’s for and if it’s actually worth your money.

Currently you can get the program for $10 (it normally goes for $50) at the official website.

Why your hip flexors are important

Can one simple muscle really be keeping you in pain, making you look fat and causing so many other of other health problems?

Sound’s pretty exaggerated… until you consider the function of the hip flexors and the actual reason they are causing so many people so much trouble.

Why focus on hip flexors?

What makes the flexors so important? They are the bridge between your upper and lower body. The psoas muscles are the only muscles connecting your upper body to your lower body. This makes them crucial for:

  • Maintaining neutral pelvic alignment
  • Stabilizing your hips
  • Supporting your lower spine and abdomen
  • roviding greater mobility and core strength
  • Supporting the organs in your pelvic and abdominal cavity

You see, our hip flexors are the engine through which our body moves. They control balance, our ability to sit, stand, twist, reach, bend, walk and step.

Some of the symptoms associated with tight hip flexors (according to the authors):

  • Nagging Joint Pain
  • Bad Posture
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Sluggishness
  • High Anxiety
  • Digestive Problems
  • Weakened Immune System
  • Circulatory Issues
  • Loss of Sexual-Performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in the Gym

What is ‘Unlock Your Hip Flexors’

As the authors themselves put it: ‘Unlock Your Hip Flexors is a practical, easy-to-follow program you can use to release your hip flexors for more strength, better health and increased energy.’

The program consists of:

Unlock Your Hip Flexors pdf manual

Unlock Your Hip Flexors ManualThis is a 63 page ebook in pdf format. It starts off with a detailed explanation of what your psoas muscle (hip flexor) is and what the effects of its shortening are to your health and well-being.

The second part of the ebook goes into the actual routine. These are the 10 exercises you will be doing to ‘unlock’ the psoas muscle.

Unlock Your Hip Flexors video

Unlock Your Hip Flexors DVDThe video consists of two parts. In the first part Rick takes you through each of the 10 exercises in detail, helping you understand what to do and why you’re doing it.

The second part of the video is a follow-along of the stretching routine. This is a great way to learn the flow of the routine. You just follow along with the video.

Unlock Your Hip Flexors is a digital product. This means that it doesn’t get delivered to your door. Instead, after your payment, you recieve an email that contains links to download the pdf manual and the video.

What we liked

  • The manual does a good job of explaining the exercises as well as the function and the importance of the psoas muscle.
  • The exercises are easy to do, especially if you follow along with the video.
  • The whole workout takes just 10 minutes to complete and you don’t need any extra equipment (except a wall) to follow along.
  • The discount price of $10 at which the program is being sold on the official website, combined with the 60 day money back guarantee make it extremely affordable and allow you to try it risk free.
  • It’s a digital product, so you can download the pdf and the video directly after purchasing without having to wait for it to be delivered to your doorstep.

What we didn’t like

  • The claims in the sales page make it sound like unlocking your hip flexors will be the solution all your problems. Although tight hip flexors cause health problems they are not the ‘be all, end all’.
  • After you purchase you are added to the sellers newsletter and you will receive a lot of emails promoting other products. Of course you can simply unsubscribe.
  • After the purchase you will be pitched a lot of up-sells/add-ons. These were probably left out of the original product to keep the price low and you really don’t need them to benefit from the program.

These are great exercises and not that difficult to do. Wish I had them 6 years ago. I think they’ll keep me nice and loose for golf.

Overall, I have had a great experience with this workout program. Rick explains every move so well and I can already tell a difference in the way my body feels. My hips hurt less, I’m sleeping better, and I am in an overall better mood since I’m not in pain. Highly recommended this product.

Kimberlee

My husband and I have the item about 1 week. I tried the exercises 3 times all the way through using the book and I have done some the exercises everyday while at work. They have helped us both. The exercises are not complicated and can be performed by anyone. I found that the video was good quality. I like that the exercises are first explained and then demonstrated in the first half of the video, then the 2nd half is follow along at real speed.

L. Wallace

I have been using the exercises presented in Unlock Your Hip Flexors for the last two weeks, and I cannot believe what an impact it has made! Not only am I able to walk longer without pain, but even sitting is more comfortable. With more toned lower abdomen, my pants are fitting better and I’m feeling muscles that I didn’t even know I had!

Unlock Your Hip Flexors Review | WWC

In this video I’m going to be reviewing Unlock Your Hip Flexors. If you’ve never been on WWC youtube channel basically what I do around here is I review workout and weight loss products, give them a test and let you guys know my final thoughts.

What is Unlock Your Hip Flexors? So the program is for someone who’s been having a lot of back and joint pain or wants to get a little bit more explosiveness but just can’t because their body’s a little bit achy.

So this whole guide teaches you how to unlock what they call the hidden survival muscle. By unlocking them you’re going to be able to get some extra strength as well as relieve pain completely or you know maybe just a little bit.

If you were to purchase, what are you going to get? When you purchase it you get a manual guide that is written as well as a video guide that goes through a lot of the content.

Some of the methods that are in the video guide are going to be PMF, fascia and dynamic stretching, 3d core stability exercises, mobility exercises and muscle activation movements.

For the manual side of things like here are some things that you can expect to see if you were to purchase it:

Why hip flexors are holding back your posture
A whole list of exercises with photographic modules that you can use
situations that you should be aware of when training your glutes for maximum strength and explosiveness

I’m just going to stop listing them off because I’m like literally just reading off the titles from the book right in front of me. So if you want to see you like everything that you’re going to click the link below in the description and you can read like every little thing that you’re going to get and what you can expect on their official website.

Let’s just get into what I like about it

First off is simple and easy to follow. They give you a video guide and you’re just going to plop that thing up and follow the stretching routines that are in there as well as the exercises. You’re not going to need a kinesiology degree. You don’t need anything all. It’s super easy to follow.

The second thing I like about it is that there’s a science behind it. If you were to go on Google right now and try typing in something like ‘if I do stretches for my hip flexors will it help pain’ or something along those lines like ‘are tight hip flexors bad for you’ you’re going to find a bunch of resources and people saying that if you have tight hip flexors you can experience a lot of back pain and it could hold you back in the gym. Just go run the Google search you can see that there is some science behind this.

Another thing I like is that they have a little bonus called a Anti-inflammatory Diet Guide, where they’re just going to give you an exact guide that you can follow.

Lastly there’s a money-back guarantee. So, you can purchase it and if you don’t like it for whatever reason you’re going to get your money back.

Here’s what I don’t like about it

One, it costs ten dollars. It would be a heck of a lot better if it was free but, you know, ten bucks isn’t that bad.

Second thing, on their sales page they say like Oh putting these techniques and you’re going to instantly be able to unlock your hip flexor. The thing is that it’s going to take a few days of stretching before it actually starts to kick in. You’re just going to do one stretch and then be able to go deadlift an extra 50-pounds like they suggest on their sales page.

As for your other options… there really are none, which is weird because I’ve always given extra options that you can check out. This really seems to be the only guide that’s geared towards getting rid of your tight hip flexors.

The ultimate question… Do I recommend it? Yes, it’s only ten dollars and if you’re having trouble with something like this it just seems like a no-brainer. You could fork out ten dollars, see if it works and you could always return it if it doesn’t. If you have just an awful back right now and you’re not sure what’s going on then I would fork up the ten dollars and just give it a go.

I also recommend it because I had a good experience with it. It really just made my body feel good.
