Psoas: Strength and Flexibility, by Pamela Ellgen

The psoas (pronounced “so-ass”, the P is silent) is the muscle connecting the top of your body to your legs.  While that sounds crucial, Ellgen emphasizes that the psoas is just one of myriad factors determining overall health, and she strives to present its role in context.  Comprehensive, straightforward and practical, this book gets immediately down to business with two simple tests to determine if your psoas is healthy.  Two sets of exercises follow:  one for flexibility, one for strength.  The book ends with four exercise routines for specific concerns, such as people seeking pain relief, or those with a sedentary lifestyle.  Clearly described and illustrated, the 50 exercises themselves are drawn from yoga, Pilates, and typical weight-training.
