New science from the Postural Restoration Institute shows that how you breath during core exercises makes or breaks their worth. A simple trick of the breath can make each second and rep pack a bigger punch, strengthening the underused muscles deep in your core.

 

Exhale Completely
“The whole point of most core exercises is to teach your body to protect your spine by not overextending your back,” says Kechijian. “Exhaling completely before you do an exercise sets your rib cage down, not flared out, which is the best position to save your spine and activate your abs.”

“Doing relaxed, deep breaths allows your body to activate and strengthen your deep core,” says Kechijian. “Working those muscles, such as your transversus abdominus and pelvic floor, provides more stability, which can make your body more efficient at performing nearly all physical tasks.”

“Most people have tight upper backs. Rounding your upper back and breathing in that position releases tension and loosens those muscles, which can help you avoid injury,” says Kechijian.
