Psoas March w/ Band | Video Tutorial
The psoas muscle is located in the lower lumbar region of the spine and extends through the pelvis to the femur. This muscle works by flexing the hip joint and lifting the upper leg towards the body. A common example of the movement created from this muscle is jogging, running or walking. You can also perform this movement with your heels elevated on a bench which is a more difficult variation which calls a lot more on the hamstrings & posterior chain for support.
Here is one of my favorite people David Goggins giving his perspective on the important of the psoas as it pertains to running. If you don't follow him and ever need some external motivation I highly recommend tapping in to his intense journey.
