WHAT IS LOW PRESSURE FITNESS?
Low Pressure Fitness is a training system that combines the basics of hypopressive technique, myofascial stretching and neurodynamics. The body’s muscle chains are trained without increasing intra-abdominal pressure.
WHAT ARE SOME BENEFITS OF LOW PRESSURE FITNESS?
-Pelvic floor restoration
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF EXCESSIVE ABDOMINAL TENSION?
-Weakens deepest core muscles (our greatest stabilizers)
-Increase pressure on the pelvic floor
-Inhibits diaphragm function
-Creates abnormal positioning of the organs (lowers pelvic organs)
-Decreases spinal mobility
WHAT HAPPENS DURING HYPOPRESSIVES?
There is a reduction of intra-abdominal pressure, activation of the deepest spinal and lumbo-pelvic postural musculature and myofascial tension is normalized (Normalizes joint mobility and improves posture). The diaphragm lifts, there is a decrease in intra-abdominal pressure, waist line goes in, organs elevate, pressure in the pelvic floor decreases and the pelvic floor muscles activate.
WHY DO I CARE ABOUT MY PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLES ACTIVATING PROPERLY?
-They support and lift the pelvic organs
-They control voiding (contract to prevent leaking and relax to void)
-They help with sexual function
-They help with circulation and respiration
-They provide a sensation of urgency
-They improve lymphatic drainage
-They support the spine and hips
