Train your diaphragm!
The diaphragm is a sheet-like muscle that spans the bottom of the rib cage (thoracic cavity). Its main function is in breathing, but it also acts as a ‘core’ and postural muscle and creates spinal stability/stiffness when working efficiently.
> It happens to be one of the most dysfunctional muscles, mainly because the incidence of breathing dysfunction is high these days. It is an internal muscle, so many people find it difficult to recruit well when breathing efficiency is lacking.
> Mastering breathing can literally change people’s lives, yet most people don’t do it. The diaphragm is the main muscle involved in breathing and should be given the emphasis it deserves in any training or wellness program.
> From the elite athlete to the average person trying to live a healthy lifestyle…train your breathing function. Put time aside to learn how to use your diaphragm, and then improve your breathing control and capacity. Breathing practice can actually be turned into a workout on its own, as the diaphragm can be trained and built up like any other muscle in the body.
GET STARTED with 5 minutes of breathing practice a day, after you have established how to use your diaphragm well.
