Core Breathing

Why Hydration is so important?
September 11, 2018

Breathing from the diaphragm is essential to a well-functioning core and the foundation on which all core exercises should be built.  Your core has four parts:

  • Diaphragm
  • Pelvic floor
  • Transversus abdominis
  • Multifidus

To execute a core breath, sit up straight, put one hand on your belly and the other on your side, and take a full, deep breath.  Inhale to expand your diaphragm, and exhale to engage.  Be sure use your diaphragm and avoid a “belly breath”.

Once you have full and proper core breathing, you can begin to engage the pelvic floor and other core exercises.
