Breathing with a balloon🎈🎈🎈Excellent for strengthening 💪the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

Although we usually encourage training without accessories - so you can practice anywhere - using the balloon to strengthen the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor is just very effective and great fun !!😁

Why is it so effective ??

Here are some really good reasons:

  1. Simulates load

  2. Synchronizes the diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles

  3. Helps correct reverse breathing during exertion

  4. You can practice in a variety of positions

  5. great fun of course !! 😎😉😁

In the short video we attached to the post we demonstrate different degrees of difficulty for inflating the balloon.

  1. lying on your back. This is the easiest since there is no gravitational load on the pelvic floor

  2. lying on your back with movement - up to a bridge - those who are already familiar with our program know that exercises that focus on the back muscles are highly recommended for pelvic floor problems. the bridge is a great example of an exercise that involvs the posterior train and also letting the pelvis be taller than the chest, which encourages pelvic floor load reduction during load.

  3. Sitting - with load (of gravity) on the pelvic floor in addition to the balloon inflating

  4. Standing - with load (of gravity) on the pelvic floor in addition to balloon inflating. standing is our ultimate goal as we spend a lot of our daily life standing.

There are other recommended poses that you can practice as:

  1. lying on the side

  2. quadruped

Motionless at first and then with the addition of movement.
