A new training technique

Hypopressive exercises are a new training technique to work the abdominal area, it is an innovative method used by health professionals and physical exercise.

It consists of a set of postural and respiratory exercises that provide multiple benefits in therapy, prevention, health improvements, body aesthetics and sports performance. They allow to reduce the tension that there is in the intra-abdominal zone and at the same time cause the activation of the pelvic floor muscles. All the exercises have to be done with the proper technique, always dominating our breathing and abdomen.


Correct execution of hypopressive exercises

For the performance of hypopressive exercises is essential to adopt the correct posture, however it is normal that the first time you do these exercises you feel some discomfort. If this sensation of pain appears in some muscles, it may be due to muscle tension in a specific area or to the activation of certain postural muscles that do not exercise normally during training.

It is convenient to have comfortable clothes and a mat to be able to adopt the correct posture.

Avoid hypopressive exercises after eating and before going to bed because they can activate your energy a lot. My recommendation is to make them in the morning to start the day with energy.

There are different positions to perform these exercises, and there are even many variants; in motion, in pairs, with objects and with devices such as vibrating platforms and electro-stimulators.

These types of exercises should be supervised by a professional to control the order, intensity and execution of them.
