Flow Movement – “Breathing Bridge” (Glute activation series part 2)

FLOW

  • (def) : also known as the zone, flow is a mental state in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.

Interestingly, this is also a pretty good definition of Mindfulness.


‘HOW TO’ FLOW / be mindful

  • Anatomically‘ match your breathing with your movements : whenever you ‘get smaller’ (flex) let yourself exhale – and whenever you ‘get bigger/wider’ (extend) let yourself inhale.
  • Do not force anything (like ranges of motion or balance challenges) = 6 out of 10 in difficulty.
  • stay calm and clear minded (the breathing helps with this).

“Breathing Bridge”

-> 5 Diaphragmatic Breaths in ‘The Bottom of the Bridge’ (toes up)

-> 5 Diaphragmatic Breaths in ‘The Top of the Bridge’ (drive through heels)

-> 5 Diaphragmatic Breaths while synchronizing your breathing and your movement = (‘Hip thrust / Glute-bridge’)

*inhaling/exhaling FULLY as you reach your ‘Hip thrust / Glute-bridge’ END RANGE.

DIAPHRAGMATIC BREATHING : Hands on lower abs, feel them expand with the inhale and sink with the exhale.

 


Use this EVERYDAY to help yourself get in touch with your Pelvic floor and Glutes

– “Money Back Guaranteed” to get everything working together IF and ONLY IF you can get the breathing and movement to SYNC.
