Power of breathing


Hello all.

Today I will share their experiences, talk about how I see it as one of the options for the development of force breathing.

This option is quite physiological, and he came quite naturally.

The strength of breath - this is the strength of your diaphragm and abdominal muscles, plus all your physical tone. Why not lungs, namely, the muscles of the body?

Because there are no muscles in the lungs, they can not change its volume.
This is defined by a diaphragm. And she, in turn, loves a good overall muscle tone. In my opinion, Vatazumi why not a little time to physical training of the muscles.

What exercises are best to do?

These exercises should increase lung capacity and strength of the diaphragm, and good will, if they will give a good tone major muscle groups.

These exercises, in the first place, I am squatting, or their substitutes. Performing squats should be done during breath bending legs and exhale - while straightening. This is necessary in order to create additional pressure on the diaphragm.

Second, it is an exercise divorced from the side arms, they are required to give the tone of the pectoral muscles, back muscles and increase the volume of the chest.

Third, is the load on the press, and back. Breathing, oddly enough, is formed in the abdomen, there is a way to breathe in the diaphragm, being attracted to a point just below the navel. This point the Japanese call "tanden", chainese in Tai-Chi - "Lower Tan Tien," and there are many other names, the essence of this does not change. They formed the attention needed for a powerful inspiration. What is more confident, controlled, powerful muscle tone around this point - the more powerful the breath ... and exhale.
Exhale, "pushes the diaphragm" of this region (point), it is his mainstay.

There are many exercises to control attention in this area (point), but before they begin - need a framework, the physical tone of the whole body and especially this area.

Loins, buttocks, lower abdomen, and other smaller muscles of this area (including even the smooth muscles of internal organs!) Directly affect the power of our breath, as they support for "tanden".

And so, the strategy and tactics are clear. Here is a simple set of exercises that can be developed and complemented.

1. Exercise - squats.

Stand up straight, feet shoulder width apart, shoulders, for balance, a small stick or you can hotiku 2.6 hands - lie on it.
Inhale and at the same time - bend legs at an average pace, squat.
At the maximum point - feel like the legs under pressure to the chest filled with air.
Start with five. Repeat two more times.

2. exercise - lifting the torso in the supine position with arms wide divorced.

This is the usual push-ups, if it is difficult to perform a full recovery - can be done only for the upper body. Main wider spread your arms, the criterion - when the arms are bent at the elbows at right angles, you are not touching the floor, you are at about the middle path of up and down. Lifting body - exhale, drop - a breath.
Start with five. Repeat two more times. Rate average.

3. exercise - lifting the body from the supine position.

Fasten the legs, for example, place them on consignment, or place the foot of the obstacle (the battery, the bed). Lie on your back, arms locked in the lock behind her head. Do not bring a little climbs up to the vertical position of the body, so that the load was constant (in an upright position press begins to relax earlier than necessary). Notice of breathing circuit has changed. Lifting body - breath, drop - exhale.
Start with five. Repeat two more times. Rate average.

4. exercise - lifting the body from a prone position on his stomach.

A similar exercise 3, the only lift the body up to a maximum and slightly delayed at the top. Lifting body - breath, drop - exhale.
Start with five. Repeat two more times. Rate average.

All powerful Ro!

Thank you Ba,
This is an excellent recommendation. I always advocate strengthening of the diaphragm for shakuhachi. I've been doing a series of excercises that began with the idea of massaging the passage-ways of chi for years and result in the same outcome as your suggestions; diaphragm strength.

Great! These exercises are much more physical than other ones with the aim of enhancing the breathing or strength of diaphragm for shakuhachi playing that I have tried before! Soon we will all be fit! Smile
Thanks for your recommendations!

IMHO

All that is surrounded by a veil of secret knowledge available only through experience.
The experience, in turn, is what we experience as a movement, desires, thoughts.
This is our life.
And life is very simple and beautiful, and that is true secret knowledge! Smile

Ro on, friends!)))
