A couple more notes about the kettlebell swing! ⠀ • generate tension when standing behind bell and hinging down • setting the bell down doesn’t mean dropping, throwing or losing your neutral back position! Allow the bell to swing back, then gently place on the ground • including power breathing is going to take your swings to the next level. Sharp inhale through your nose in the back swing, then a forceful exhale with a hiss at the hip snap. • I used to be embarrassed about making those hissing noises in the gym. Then I got strong... ⠀ I am ON that email grind, between sending practical workouts and practical ways to feel more confident in and out of the gym.

Many people also shallow breathe or don't take breaths as often as they should, meaning they don't get sufficient oxygen going to the body on a cellular level. Longterm, this can cause all sorts of health problems, including muscular problems, fatigue, headaches, emotional problems, digestive problems, and even cancer. In fact, you name it... it will probably cause it. The 3:12:6 power breathing technique will help with getting you on your way to optimal health. In standing, shoulders relaxed, feet shoulder width apart, slight bend to the knees, place your hands horizontally across your belly with the tips of your middle fingers meeting at your belly button. Then take a breath in through your nose for 3 seconds getting the air all the way down into your belly so that your fingers move away from each other. Do not tense up or lift your shoulders. Next, hold this breathe for 12 seconds (hard to do for this long at first!). And then breathe out through pursed lips for 6 seconds, expelling as much air as possible. Repeat 10 times, on the hour. If you feel a bit light-headed at first... you have probably been oxygen deprived. Make this a habit and see how many health benefits you find start to occur in your life!

Benefits of proper breathing: Detoxification of the body occurs when the lungs deeply and fully inhale oxygen and exhale impurities. The lungs play such an important role in eliminating toxins and waste products from the body. However, shallow breathing makes the lungs work harder to expel the waste. Due the accumulation of toxins, you can suffer from health problems like inflammation, fatigue, weight gain, muscle loss, and high blood pressure. 📝 (source: https://www.top10homeremedies.com/news-facts/how-to-do-deep-breathing-and-its-advantages.html) • • #BrianStevens #BodyFuel #DMV #Arlington #VA #MD #DC #Maryland #Virginia #PersonalTrainer #Trainer #LifeCoach #BreathingCoach #Motivation #BraggHealthCrusades #EmpowerYourself #EnergizeYourself #RelaxYourself #SuperHealth #BetterYou #BetterMe #SuperPowerBreathing #PowerBreathing #Workout #Athletic #AthleticCoach #PowerOfNow #Present #Strength #StrengthTraining

The importance of self-care. 😌💖 I had another beautiful morning practice today. Gosh, I love my @sittinprettystill meditation cushion! It makes me SO happy! It’s so inviting and keeps me feeling inspired and grateful for love and my Yoga practice. I’ve been working on getting my practice back into my daily routine. Making progress on waking up earlier! 👍🏼🌟 I’ve also been taking a weekly Trauma Healing & Resilience 6-week Yoga class. I noticed that lately, I have had so many recent releases of emotional, mental & physical traumas in my life (things from years ago). It’s amazing — what the breath and connecting to the Self and God can do. 🤸🏻‍♀️🌬🧘🏻‍♀️✨ #compassion #thriving #Yoga #spiritualpractice #physicalpractice #breathwork #powerbreathing #meditationpractice #realizations #sittinprettystill #selfcare #selflove #connection #balance #routine #groundedness #aware #happy #well #free 🕊💕 And to top it off, I got Emmerie and I some delicious Nut Butter Toast and a side of Cashew Chia Mylk from @unicojuiceshop 🌱💖 #sogood #healthyfuel👌🏼💚 I am so grateful we live closer to this gem! #thelittlethings #sandiegolife
