A Breath & Stability Tool You Didn’t Know You Needed

Anyone can stick their tummy out, right? Well, can you expand the sides of your abdomen on command?

This tricky skill is actually a cornerstone to proper trunk stability. Chances are you learned it naturally in the earlier of movement milestones you passed through as an infant. Chances are you also lost this ability somewhere along the way also. 

Quality movement starts first and foremost with basic stabilization of the torso. 

As coaches, we’re constantly training, priming, practicing, and drilling functional trunk stability into our work. Nonetheless, we know that tactile feedback and the simple idea of learning by doing trumps all styles of teaching in the gym. 

That’s why we’ve invested in several units of The Breath Belt for our students to feel proper 360-degree expansion of the abdominal system to support movement in the gym. If you’re curious about investing in this tool, too, click here
