Unlock Your Hip Flexors. Let’s dive deep and see what does this means…
In the majority of cases, anyone would assume that this is something about reducing tension and increasing flexibility in the hip area. However, there is a sort of, new product on the block. The Unlock Your Hip Flexors program in PDF has hit the market with high claims that not only will it help you release your hip flexors, but also make you look slimmer, improve your sexual life and help you have a better, sounder sleep simultaneously.
In recent times, the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program on DVD has gained much popularity with a ton of people trying out the program, so much so that it intrigued me enough to want to see what all the fuss was about.
I grabbed my laptop and ran a Google search of reviews to get a better idea of what the program is all about. However, if you did the same just like me, and tried searching for yourself, you probably would have noticed a couple of things, and picked up a pattern by now. Most of the reviews out there are paid, biased, or just a load of crap. Some of them aren’t even proper reviews: they just simply summarize the product sales page, and it’s pretty evident that the reviewer hasn’t even bought the program or taken a look at it in person.
That is where I wanted to make a difference, and the only way I was going to find out more about the program is if I bought it myself.
This review will note my first-hand experiences of purchasing and using the program as well as my insights on its effectiveness and functionality.
What Is the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program? – An Introduction:
Since you are here reading about this program, there is a high possibility that you already know that Unlock Your Hip Flexors exercises are a paid online program. The program focuses on the basis of helping your release of the tight hip flexors. How does this program do that? It uses a special method that promotes a whole load of astonishing benefits.
The author of the program, Mike Westerdal is a national best-selling fitness author who realized the power of the Unlock Your Hip Flexors method. Mike’s wife used to have chronic pain and discomfort in her hips so Mike consulted Kinesiologist and Rick Kaselj. The next thing he did was successfully unlocking his wife’s hip flexors using the techniques outlined in this program in only a matter of 15 minutes!
About the Author – Mike Westerdal:
Once he realized his potential, Mike soon decided to team up with Rick so he could learn the secret methods and make it available to the general public, thus the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program came into being. While the whole program takes 10-15 minutes to complete, the duo has laid out the 10 key moves that will help you unlock your hips and boost your overall health in a myriad of body parts.
Furthermore, the duo have also teamed up to lay forth additional products, including the Forward Head Posture Fix program.
It is easy to assume for anyone that releasing your hip flexors program will only help with improving flexibility, nevertheless, the duo of authors of the program point out there is much more to that that most people don’t seem to grasp.
List the possibilities of what you can achieve with their method:
1. Remove joint and back pain
3. Improve your energy
5. Perk up your sex life
2. Reduce belly fat
4. Fend off diseases
6. Perk up blood circulation
The duo of authors also claims that the tight hip flexors are the very root cause of a number of ailments such as the following:
1. Insomnia and other sleeping problems
3. High stress and anxiety levels
5. Loss of libido and weak sexual performance
2. Digestion and other stomach ailments
4. Lethargy and sluggishness
6. Weak immune system
Both Mike and Rick emphasize the point that the key factor to unlocking all of these benefits depends entirely on the PSOAS muscle. Speaking more precisely, it’s the tightness of the PSOAS muscle. PSOAS is one of the muscles that make up the hip flexor and contributes to all these major problems described above. Once we learn how to release the PSOAS, gaining all the above benefits would only be a matter of time.
Let’s Talk About the PSOAS Major:
According to Mike and Rick, the problem with the general public is that nearly everyone spends most of his day sitting, working on a laptop or computer, thus has a tight PSOAS. Their idea states that once you are spending a period of your day or just a lot of time sitting such as at your couch, or in your car, you are prone to have a tight PSOAS.
Therefore by releasing the PSOAS, you can gain the benefits of looking slimmer, increasing fat loss and improving sexual performance amongst other things.

My Experience With the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program:
Since I have already laid out all the details of what the program is all about, let me have the privilege to outline my personal experience, starting with the very first step of the program: the purchasing experience.
Purchasing the Program:
The very first step in making the purchase for the program was rather
easy. All you need to do is click the purchase button and leave the rest for it will take you to a payment processor. Also, Clickbank.com oversees the payment processor so you don’t need to worry about scams where your money could be stolen or something.
I can back up my last statement with so much confidence for I have known of Clickbank.com for around a decade now and there are no shady elements to the firm at all. I have done a ton of purchasing from them before and not once have I had a problem with them. Rest assured everyone should know that this is not the case where there are products on a website just to scam people and get their credit card details.
More about Clickbank.com:
The mentioned site is basically a digital marketplace that hosts a myriad of products from product creators and also manages their payments and transactions. I can certify their legitimacy and I have never had any problems or regrets with trusting their purchasing process.
While making the payment was pretty smooth, reaching the final product was a whole different ball game. It made me feel like I had to jump over hurdles in a track and make it to the main field event.
The process made me feel like my purchase was going through approximately 1000 upsells and further marketing by the creators promoting a number of their other products.
Brace yourself for you will have to click through a myriad of pages before making it to the actual Unlock Your Hip Flexors program. Mark my words, the experience can prove to be pretty frustrating at times.
Unlock Your Hip Flexors Materials and Resources:
One thing that I noticed is that the images on the sales page are slightly misleading solely because of the fact that there are physical resources to back them up; you don’t get a physical manual or DVD, rather everything goes all digital.
In simpler words, you don’t have to wait for anything and you can get started right away once you view the program.
You can get all the resources from a download page with links to the resources. The links include links such as:
1. The Unlock Your Hip Flexors manual PDF consists of a total of 63 pages. You might need to download a PDF reader to read it if you live under a rock, its needless to say that most modern computers today are already PDF ready.
2. The page also has another 10 minutes long embedded video without explanations from its predecessor. This video is great for use on a daily basis if you prefer visual cues overwritten descriptions of the routine.
3. The download page comes embedded with a video: this video is the 20-minute coaching video demonstrating how to perform the exercises appropriately.
The bonuses are as follows:
1. In the download area of the package, you can also find a bonus link to the Unlock Your Tight Hamstrings PDF and a short embedded video of the workouts. The PDF is just a description of the aerobics demonstrated in the video.
2. A 7-Day Anti-Inflammatory Diet plan consisting of 54 pages in PDF is made available via a download link.
Regarding the Download:
I did not encounter any real issues when gaining access to any of the resources downloading the material. But that is not all, the very idea of the product being totally digital as opposed to getting a physical manual PDF and DVD is rather delightful in this fast-paced era.
Once you lay your eyes on the Unlock Your Hip Flexors PDF and you will admit too there isn’t much that wasn’t already there explained on the sales page initially. All in all, the first 45 pages of the PDF do nothing more than simply expand on the concepts already explained on the sales page. Speaking of the remaining pages, they show the details on how to perform the exercises with pretty helpful imagery going hand in hand with them.
Just like me, I don’t really feel that many people would find the PDF of much use except in the case when they want to learn more about the POAS and its importance to the betterment of overall health of the body.
The videos are pretty much what I had expected from them. The videos outline the 10 exercises and demonstrate how to perform them properly. Any user from any age group can follow them as all the videos are clear and easy to follow.
By now, you should be pretty clear about the Unlock Your Hip Flexors resources score pretty well on the test, let’s move to the important part now.
Is this program really worth it, does it really do all that it says it does?
Will we really gain all these stated benefits as the program says or are they just a bunch of lies?
Taking a deeper look at the ten-step process I couldn’t up to anything special at all. If you are one of those people who are already fairly active and stretch regularly or perform any basic form of workout or yoga, the program won’t have much or sometimes nothing to surprise you. If you are a regular user of any “Beach body” program or have at least crossed paths with it, you are most likely to recognize the given workouts somewhere among their many programs.
Not what we know, any of the stretching techniques or workouts aren’t anything new altogether, the Unlock Your Hip Flexors does have an only unique selling point, which should be about its ‘special sequential flow’ method. All in all, I think the order in which these exercises and stretches are performed is really the secret to stretching the PSOAS.
The authors further state that only the static stretching will not work on its own, but you need to have a dynamic sequence instead.
The dynamic sequence should include:
1. PNF Stretching
3. Dynamic Stretching
5. 3-Dimensional Core Stability Exercises
2. Mobility Exercises
4. Fascia Stretching
6. Muscle Stimulation Movements
The key is not so much in these activities alone, but also in the order that you release and strengthen the muscles.
From my point of view, I have a hard time grasping any real evidence why the special order of doing these moves has any greater effect than doing the exercises in whatever order you please, but I am no fitness expert so I can’t really say much about this.
One more thing that the PDF fails to explain is why this sequence is so special other than saying that the sequence unravels the tissue and aids with the betterment of blood flow. It’s easy to have the thought that the secret to reaping all the mentioned benefits is in this secret, the authors would have spent a little longer discussing their discovery.
I need to point out that I am no fitness guru of any sort and the authors of the products are sure to have much greater credentials than me for sure. Yet I and many others would love to see some more evidence or at least a discussion of greater depths on the scientific reasoning and behind the main idea of the program.
Let’s suppose the method does work, yet there are some other issues like whether ‘unlocking’ the PSOAS efficaciously will get us all the amazing benefits listed on the sales page.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that the claims are slightly exaggerated. Nevertheless, I do agree that the PSOAS is a pretty important muscle of human anatomy, and I have indeed read a lot about the emotions and stress being stored in the hip area. But it is rather far-fetched to say that it is capable of bringing all the benefits listed by Mike and Rick.
Since so little of it is exposed, the PSOAS is one of the harder muscles to stretch and release. Until now, I had only come across the idea that proper relaxation and breathing techniques are the only real ways to relax the muscle group.
Should You Try the Unlock Your Hip Flexors Program?
Note: It appears that this product is also available from Amazon as a physical copy too.
As I have mentioned before, if you happen to be one of the fairly active people out there and know the basics of stretching already, I would like to remain dubious that the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program is bringing you any real benefits. Especially when taking the list of benefits that the authors claim into consideration. It would come as a surprise if this routine daily will aid much in making anyone look slimmer, eliminating anxiety, or aid against insomnia and other sleeping ailments.
Like most of the human population, if you tend to live a sedentary lifestyle, and barely workout or stretch, or are incredibly inflexible especially when talking about those in the hip area, then, of course, this program is the green light for you. The program will aid you to perk up your flexibility in the hip area owing to the fact that you never had any flexibility before!
But that is not all: the workouts do look like they can help you in correcting your pelvic posture. But it seems a little misleading to say that your tight PSOAS muscles undergo relaxation and suddenly will feel incredible health and power.
It might seem like a negative review, but taking nothing but the price of the product into consideration will answer most of your questions if you are sitting on a picket right now. It only costs $10. Had the price been $50, I would’ve advised you to stay away, but since that, it’s only $10, I can say that it’s a pretty reasonable gamble, and trying the program to see if it helps at all is totally worth the risk.
Plus, the program Unlock Your Hip Flexors comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee, so there is no reason to freak out! Buy it, give it a try and see for yourself if it works for you. If it does not, nobody is going to stop you from getting your money back.
