Heart pumps blood,
diaphragm pumps air
The same way the heart is responsible for pumping blood, diaphragm is responsible for pumping air. In order to improve heart health you have to exercise and the same is true for your breathing system.
The diaphragm is the primary breathing muscle - a dome-shaped sheet of muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdomen. It is a very strong membrane and therefore breathing deeply and powerfully takes some concentrated effort. As the diaphragm contracts, it flattens out, moving toward the abdominal cavity. This action causes an increase in the size of the chest cavity, thus creating a vacuum. Air is then sucked in through the mouth or nose. When physical activity increases dramatically, or with some lung conditions, other muscles like those of the neck and those between the ribs also assist in the increase in size of the chest cavity. These muscles are referred to as accessory muscles of respiration.
Preparation is the key
If we work our muscles, they become stronger, but if we don’t - they become weak. Regular exercise keeps your breathing muscles in good shape.
Most of the time we don’t feel the need for training them until we find ourselves in a situation, which makes us realize that we don’t know how to control our breath - a stressful audition or job interview, increased physical activity or an asthma attack. It is too late to prepare then - you must be prepared before.
Stronger muscles mean easier breathing
Because we breathe using the diaphragm and many other muscles, that help to expand, depress or support the rib cage, the only real and guaranteed way to improve your breathing is to improve your breathing muscles. There is no way around it.
Diaphragm Workout helps you do just that - improve every single muscle involved in breathing and their range of motion, giving you assurance that your respiratory system will work 100 % at any given moment.
