Unlock Your Hip Flexors


Friends, do you suffer from hip pain.  If you’re like me, your work history may have to progressed from manual labor to an office environment.  I’ll have to admit that, at first, I loved it – enclosed climate controlled environment and sitting in an office chair for the greater part of my work day.  What more can a guy ask for right, “This must be the life”, right?  Not exactly.  I began to notice over a long period of time that my hips began to become stiff and jolts of pain from time to time.  Although I had given smoking up years ago, sitting had become the new smoking.  I immediately started basic regimen of routine stretching and taking natural supplements like Turmeric help with any inflammation.




Later on, I came across some helpful information from a national best-selling fitness author named Mike Westerdal.  His informative brochure explained some deep rooted problems that I was actually experiencing as symptoms:

  • Nagging joint pains in your legs, lower back or hips
  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Sluggishness in day to day life
  • High Anxiety
  • Digestive problems
  • Compromised Immune System
  • Circulatory issues
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in the gym or sports

Mike revealed 10 Key Moves you need to loosen your hip flexors and unlock the hidden power in your body.  I need to know more and kept reading.  He went to bring forth relevant truths about much sitting was affecting my physical and emotional health.  I sought advice from my family doctor and even a chiropractor but still didn’t get the results I was looking for…  I continued with my inflammation supplements and static stretching until I realized my current method wasn’t enough.

As I continued reading Mike’s brochure, it was clear that I was getting closer to the end of the rainbow.  Mike introduced a leading Injury Specialist named Rick Kaselj, MS and that’s when I struck gold!  When fitness professionals what to learn the latest techniques to help their clients, Rick is the “go to guy”!  Rick has given over 300 live presentations to over 8,000 professionals over the US and Canada.  At the conclusion of the brochure, I discovered that Mike and Rick created an awesome program for unlocking your hip flexors.  “Unlock Your Hip Flexors” gives you a practical, easy-to-follow, step by step program that you can use today for instantly releasing your hip flexors for more strength, improved health, and energy reserves that can carry you throughout your entire day!  I highly recommend you check out “Unlock Your Hip Flexors” DVD!





Gym Membership or Resistance Band?

bands2My single resistance band was delivered on the same day as my inversion table.  I am very happy with this product!  I am going to offer 3 benefits of the utilization and promoting the purchase of such an awesome work out equipment.




WODFitters Extra Durable Elastic Workout/Exercise Pull-Up Assist Bands offer single bands or you can purchase them in a set.  For me & not being as young as I used to be, I thoughtfully considered this option over a gym membership.  Cost effectiveness and being frugal should be implemented as a benefit here, but generally speaking, here’s the 3 benefits that everyone can agree on.

3 Benefits of Using Resistance Bands

  1. Alternative to Free Weights – these elastic bands or the use of multiple elastic bands, in addition to a circuit of exercises, can provide an equal to or better work experience. The dynamic of the workout changes and becomes more focused.  Trust me, you feel the difference in short amount of time!
  2. Easier on the Joints – if you are over the age of 40, this product is for you!  Look, my body has years and years of physical labor, intense recreational fun, and playtime in multiple sports like basketball, track, tennis, swimming, and cycling.  Over time, arthritis sets in.  Tendonitis of the knee, tennis elbow, injury, orthopedic surgery, and recovery.  Take it from me, resistance bands are therapeutic for the joints!  For me, it feels good when I execute the exercise movements.  One doesn’t want the pain to come from executing the exercising the movement.  In my opinion, the pain should come as a result of a muscle breakdown and recovery from the workout the day before.
  3. Portable – I can carry my resistance band along with me anywhere.  The bottom line is that WODFitters Extra Durable Elastic Workout/Exercise Pull-Up Assist Bands offer a very portable product.  The primary tip that will provide you is to be careful with your anchor points.  When I say anchor points, this is anywhere you loop the elastic band to create resistance.

I have only had my WODFitters Extra Durable Elastic Workout/Exercise Pull-Up Assist Bands for a little over a week and can already feel the difference.  Although there is little to no physical change to my aesthetic look, my wife can’t keep her hands off of me!  As illustrated in the picture above, I have the green one and it is assisting me in regaining the symmetrical look that I am looking for and rejuvenate my joints & muscles.  Regardless of the brand, all the bands come in the same colors in relation to weight/resistance.  With the green one,  the resistance ranges from 50 to 125 Pounds.  If you can afford and have time for a gym membership and have time for yourself at home, do both.  However, if you work multiple jobs, have a family, and don’t have a lot of time for yourself, the elastic workout band single or set is the way to go.  Wish me luck as I use progression exercises before I begin executing assisted pull-up exercise movements and hope this post serves you well in your journey to health, wellness, and fitness!
