Workout Program For Weak And Tight Hip Flexors

Today we’re going to talk about tight hip flexors. Many of you – myself included – have some degree of tight and weak hip flexors. When I say hip flexors, I mean the deep hip flexors. The iliopsoas. It’s actually three muscles. They’re called Psoas Major, Psoas Minor, and Iliacus.

Together they’re called the Iliopsoas muscle. Whenever I...

Fit February Week 4 | Progress Update, Diet & Workout Plan

Fit February is into its fourth and last week. That means it’s time for the third update! I have been losing weight steadily every week, but it’s been a bit slow. -100 g. the first week and -500 g. the second week.

Fit February KICK-OFF | Fitness Challenge Week 1

My Fit February Challenge kicks off tomorrow! Today I did my first weigh-in and took progress pics, scheduled my workouts for the week and planned my diet.
