Want RESULTS? How you BREATHE MATTERS!

I’ll say this right off the bat…there is NOTHING EXCITING or GLAMOROUS about this training. But, if we want RESULTS (whether narrowly or wider built), it’s a MUST!


The GOAL is to position our body in such a way in order to create space and, as a result…create relative motion to move and feel better.


What I have for you today is actually a “progression” from my blog "Pain SUCKS...Try this!" that I wrote about a month ago.


Many thanks to my friend and mentor, Zac Cupples, for the inspiration behind the process.

Here’s what you’re gonna need: -Clear/Comfortable space. Wall space. -Something for your head/neck -Yoga block/Small ball.


Check out my video below. 🔊 Sound ON!


Here’s what you’re gonna do:

😴 Be your BEST LAZY SELF in each position.

-Do your best to RELAX your PELVIS, HIPS, and BELLY! -It should feel like you’re doing NOTHING;) Be EFFORTLESS about it. ✔️Rest your eyes if you like.


💡Find your 2 POINTS under each foot:

1) INSIDE HEEL 2) BASE of BIG TOE. 🔑Just SENSE them. Keep GENTLE pressure on both throughout…either on the ground or wall. NO FORCE! Like 2-3 out of 10. ✔️Hands on belly for feedback.

NARROW RIB CAGE: -Feet flat on the ground. GENTLY hold something between your knees. -Find your 2 POINTS! -Hands on lower belly. ABS RELAXED! -Hold this position and breathe:

👃INHALE: Quietly/Slowly through the nose (Tongue against palate). Neck relaxed.

🌬️FULL MOUTH EXHALE: LONG. SLOW. EASY. RELAXED.

-OPEN/RELAXED mouth. SIGHING (Like you’re FOGGING A GLASS)

🔑 6-8 seconds -Practice for 10-12 breaths WIDER RIB CAGE: -RIGHT SIDE. Feet flat on the wall. Something between your lower legs. -Find your 2 POINTS! -ABS RELAXED! -Hold this position and breathe:

👃INHALE: Quietly/Slowly through the nose (Tongue against palate). Neck relaxed.

🌬️FULL MOUTH EXHALE: LONG. SLOW. EASY. RELAXED.

-OPEN/PURSED LIPS (Like you’re blowing out candles)

🔑 6-8 seconds -Practice for 10-12 breaths


Notice how you move and feel afterward. Is it any different than normal?


Practice DAILY as part of your normal routine and enjoy feeling better afterwards!


Dedicated to your health and longevity,

Mike
