Hello guys..

I have noticed that somethings I have difficulties to make deep inhales and stilll feel that I didnt get enough.. So I was wondering if any one of you may have good url's or better, could send something to me, about yoga streches.. I know that for example Pipin exercises this..

Anyone ?

BTW, another question, I have just ordered a Polar M91ti / a heartrate Monitor and I was wondering if any of you has used it? I hope this will help me with my training (both dynamics/statics) too see where I can lower my heartrate..

polar HR monitor

Hi there,

I am using the Polar S610i for running etc. but also for my static training.
It is very interesting to analyse your HR on your pc, cause you can upload the data of each training with an interface.

I'm using a cheap polar monitor for static training but have found that it does my head in if I wear it as I keep wanting to look at it! Top hint - get your safety buddy to wear it... he should be near enough to pick up the signal from your chest strap and it gives him something else to look at and think about other than you face down bored... (mine's so cheap I can't download and look at it after so I need someone to tell me what happened)
on the other hand since Ive been thinking more about more heartrate I can pretty much tell what's going on without the monitor..

yoga

there are loads of good yoga stretches that will help you but the best way to learn is to join a class. I've been doing them for years from books and videos and friends but started a proper class recently and its made a load of difference.

Anything that stretches your upper body is gonna help and as just about every yoga position should be done with deep breaths then your general breathing should improve too.

A mate of mine teaches abdominal breathing to people by making them lie on the back and putting a bag of sugar on their tummy - make the bag move up and down with just your breath for ten minutes and they reckon you will abdo breath for the rest of your life!

Distraction

I also have a cheap Polar, and use it mainly for other exercises (running and cycling), I didn't find a good use in dynamic or static. The heart rate goes lower, but that distract me from performance

does anyone know of the "mula bhanda"(?), where the diaphram is sucked up and in on a full exhale(or with reverse packs)? what is it's effectiveness? it feels to me similar to empty lung dives, down to the coughing i sometimes get. does it increase diaphramatic flexibility as would neg dives? cheers

Hi! I heard about M91ti from my local sportshop when I asked about what equipments there are that I could use and he recommended Polar.. Usually I order through web everything but this time I ordered it through the store and it cost me about 280€

BTW, my ownindex is 57... must train harder...

The exercise you are talking about is called "Uddhijana Bhanda" and is one of the three Primary Contractions (Jalandhara Bhanda and Mula Bhanda are the other ones). This contraction, that must be performed with empty stomach, raise the diaphragm to its maximum and promote the peristalsis, relax the abdominal zone and invigorate the stomach, the liver, the vesicle and the intestine. This exercise must not be done more than 5 times in its correct way of course...

The benefit of this exercise cannot be dissociated from other exercises of the Pranayama, only with a whole pranayama workout we can obtain real breathing help for the freediver.

Another question, "Mula Bhanda" as Bevan Dewar said, is an anal contraction, hehe :D
