Cardio Fitness, Boomer Style
Boomer training, Dr. Bob Choat style!

Have you ever wondered what your "Psoas" is?  Where and What is My Psoas?

 The Psoas is one of the largest and thickest muscles in the body. It attaches to the vertebrae of your lower back, and the head of your femur (thigh bone).

The Psoas is primarily responsible for hip and thigh flexion and has a lot of influence over your lumbar posture and the way your hips are positioned.

When you're sitting for a prolonged period of time, your Psoas is in a shortened position. Leave it for long enough, and it will start to think this is normal. Your tissues want to move into that resting position. Leaving you tight & contracted.

Incorrect posture during standing and walking (which is often caused by a tight Psoas) will leave it even tighter and harder to loosen.

When you listen to Bob you should get the feeling, "this guy is pretty cool and for being over 60 he walks the fitness walk"

We talk at length about the psoas, personal trainers, and cardio fitness in our reocccuring visit with one of America's premier authorities on mindfullness and fitness, because without one having the second is immaterial.

Click on Bob's profile for more information and for sure check out his book-"Mind Your own Fitness".
