ACTIVATION: Forced Breathing (T-Spine)

Forced Inhalation and Exhalation incorporate accessory breathing muscles, which are primarily, type 1 (slower to fatigue), stability muscles. We use forced breathing techniques to upregulate deep core activation and motor unit coordination.

  1. Offset stance, 1 Arm Forward Tilt – Forced Exhalation 
  2. Side Squat, 1Arm Tilt Chest Open – Forced Inhalation 
  3. Half-Kneeling, Bolt Shift – Forced Exhalation 
  4. Half-Kneeling, Lift & Shift – Forced Inhalation 

Repetitions: 4 on each side 
Sets: 3 sets 
Rest: No rest between exercises or sets
Note: Decrease the volume of breath if getting dizzy

This is a circuit-style workout, perform the appropriate reps of each activity in succession, resting as instructed, to complete a set. Repeat and rest between sets as instructed.
