A weak core allows your energy to leave your body without your control during a time of need. Crunching your core helps you differentiate between your core muscles and your breath.
Practice: Sitting or lying down flat:
- Tighten your abdominal muscles by pulling them into your abdomen.
- Hold them flexed while you continue to breath. Do NOT allow your breath to move up into your chest.
- Breath in and out for five breathes.
- Release the flex of your abdominal muscles.
Purpose: Strengthening your abdominal muscles in conjunction to your breath will make you more conscious of when your energy leaves your body.
