The HYPOPRESSIVE – LOW-PRESSURE FITNESS training is not only a breathing technique with an apnea followed by a false inhale and abdominal suction. LPF has become a seamless progression of detailed postures that are maintained while performing a rhythmic breathing pattern in combination with the historical apnea and false inhale.
Low-Pressure Fitness is currently one of the most complete physical exercise programs that has become so much more than just a technique limited to those with pelvic floor dysfunction.
LPF will restore the pelvic health and train the true function of the core by reducing pressure to the thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic cavities, quite the opposite of hyperpressive exercises, which are what we generally perform daily.
If you suffer from a weak core and also have pelvic floor problems, then you should try the incredible technique of Low-Pressure Fitness.
Adherence to the program allows clients to improve posture, and abdominal resting tone, help in the prevention of abdominal and vertebral hernias, and improve athletic performance and quality of life.
Why should you practice LPF?
Whether you are a woman recovering postpartum, an athlete looking to improve athletic performance or an office worker looking for a stronger core, LPF is a helpful strategy. This is because it triggers the involuntary action of the deep core unit, which can not necessarily be targeted through traditional core exercises. Many tasks we do in everyday life are hypertensive in nature, that is they increase intra-abdominal pressure. Examples could be coughing, sneezing, lifting something heavy or running. This combined with the constant pull of gravity creates downward pressure that overtime can lead to an inability for the core, and specifically the pelvic floor, to function properly. This in turn can lead to conditions such as prolapse and hernias etc, as the pressure will always try to slip out through the weakest spots. Working on preventing this by decreasing the pressure can make the core more balanced and therefore better at handling and responding to hypertensive activities. Working on breathing also helps to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, which can help in managing stress levels and increase overall well-being.
Who should enroll?
This program is for women, who through conscious breathing want to connect with their body, especially with their core, and in this way begin to generate positive changes in health.
These are some of the benefits of practicing LPF:
- Improves muscle tone in the abdomen and pelvic floor,
- Improves posture and balance,
- Reduces the waist circumference,
- Strengthens the respiratory muscles,
- Increase aerobic capacity,
- Prevents joint and muscle injuries,
- Prevents the appearance of any type of hernia,
- Improve pelvic floor disorders such as incontinence, sexual dysfunction, prolapse,
- Decreases the degree of abdominal diastasis,
- The best method of preparation for childbirth and recovery.
