Trunk Flexion builds upon the foundation of our anatomy, creating a strong foundation to move from. In this workout, we will target our rectus abdominis and psoas muscles to support our lower back, allow us to bend forward, and help us move more freely. The stability ball provides support and anchoring for many common core training positions to create a variety of challenges for spinal flexors. Hip Flexion is an essential component of our everyday function. Hip flexor muscles help us to flex & stabilize the spine as well as lift our legs to be able to walk, climb, and squat. In this workout, we will target our iliacus, psoas major, rectus femoris, tensor fascia latae, and sartorius muscles.
These movements should be a regular part of your fitness routine. Get great modifications and cues so that you can move through the positions safely. As strength improves, so will your flexibility!
