Your regimen, progress and results..

How it started out what you were first noticing. Any intense emotions or experiences you had, etc. I can sense very clearly it had strong effects on you.

Yes! I want to see this

Yes! I want to see this mang! 

I've done a few breahting sessions and it was crazy and powerful. I've also been dealing with some syptoms, possibly due to repressed emotions manifesting as physical issues. And after the breathing meditations my syptoms got heightened for 1-2 days. I beleive this may be a healing crisis. 

I'm going to start doing it again and relaxing, maybe doing more writing or working with a breath expert coach. I feel this is what I need to create balance and intergrate past emotional trauma's that are living inside me as the painbody and manifesting.

To realize the importance of

To realize the importance of breathing take this test:

Put your body in a position very close, arms cross, head in the shoulders, legs touching each other and think of a "negative" event. Once you got the body language and negative thought set in. TAKE A LONG ASS BREATH, inhale and exhale as much as you can.

Not only your body will open itself but the thought can not sustain herself while doing it. This is one important aspect of breathing, the impact on your mind.

Introduction:

Diaphragme is a muscle located between the thorax and the abs. He's invisible because intern but very important because he play a fondamental role in the breathing. Oxygene is energie. You can stay some days without food, some hours without water but only a few minutes without air.

A short and tense diaphragme induce a weak breath pattern.

The diaphragm and the nervous system:

To briefly summarize, our nervous system is divided between the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system. (SNP)

The SNP itself is divided into several parts, including the autonomic nervous system, which divides itself between, for the power unit, into:

-the sympathetic nervous system

-the parasympathetic nervous system

The sympathetic nervous system is used to increase the heart rate and intervenes in times when we need to activate the organism (eg, must flee from danger). Heart rate, respiratory increase ..

A tense diaphragm mechanically influence on this nervous system.

Conversely, the parasympathetic nervous system will lower the heart rate, rhythm respiratoire..il allows the return to normality in the body, it helps maintain homeostasis, to maintain balance in the body.

We can act on the parasympathetic nervous system via diaphragmatic breathing. It lowers the heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen on the body, the body and muscles détendent..on better recovery between sessions, (workout) as well. And if exercise is performed at bedtime, sleep will be even more recovery over time.

During the sessions, better breath control, a faster return to calm after a high state of breathlessness will better bind the series (workout) and avoid dyspnea (breathlessness / shortness of breath) and non-voluntary hyperventilation in exercise .

The diaphragm breathing exercice:

You can do it anywhere anytime any position. A quiet and calm environnement while laying on your back is the best.

You take a long breath and inhale to the maximum of your capacity.

And then you let the air go out as slow, smoothly and regularly as possible while focusing on your diaphragme.

At some point it will start to get uncomfortable, you PC muscle will probably contract, keep going while emptying all the air.

And finally let loose of the diaphragme. You repeat that for 15minutes don't count the reps just countdown the 15minutes.

THE EFFECT IS IMMEDIATE. After the first rep you will stretch like a cat who just wake up, a badass cat. On the morning I usually sneeze but I don't buy tissue... when I do this exercice first rep, the sneezing is gone. This exercice only is what ground me the most. I do it for 15 minutes before going to bed. Because I follow a very healthy diet and lifestyle If I do more than 15minutes it create a black hole where the Protoss come pick me in person to be their new leader.

The effect for me:

- Stop the sneezing

- I enter the zone

- At the end I'm very calm and center.

- I got WAY less trouble being present.

- I enter my sleep A LOT MORE quickly

- I got the voice of Barry white.

- Feel relax and like a newborn Badass.

It also probably realize a lot of emotional tension capture in the "muscle prison" of the chest as Elliot Hulse say. So check out his channel he talk a lot about this.

Meow: Raek ? HAHAHahaha No man I don't but I will look into his library, I know Elliott got some badass drills.

Everyone should follow this. This is the first fundamental = Air

Air + water + food + a path = Badass. Note how the guy who do the video about breathing for singing come across, full badass.

Yeah this is part of the vocal training portion of my long-term program, guess we won't have to go over that part Rael, LOL. Looking back it should have been super obvious to me you'd gone thru this training already. Ha! So basically you're walking around with a bazooka and you just don't know how to use it. Faaaaggg!

We always based it around my verbals not just the breathing alone, which is more effective anyways.

Yeah Erix Arceneaux is good. He's got a really cool story about how he ended up coaching singing.

Actually I do something very similar. I modified the way I do it a little bit. What I do is lay on my belly with a pillow under my hips and breath into my kidneys and let it out with a TSSSSS and instead of counting, I do it for about 15 minutes

No sir. I always got some punch in my voice, because I sing, but never go through any training which mean:

I got a bazooka, you will give me a Zat'nik'tel and how to use it. Cool.

I realize my post, even if

I realize my post, even if instructive, is still not accurate enough. My english is not top notch...

You lie on your back, ideally, and you follow the instructions of  Eric:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEaK6oCY-GQ&list=UUUkDbIdcnHErbMWj30cKU3Q

I do it before going to bed. 360 breath then the extended hiss. My record is 1m06sec. JAW NECK THROAT SHOULDER never, NOT SLIGHTLY, tense. It should be a little uncomfortable at the end and then you should yawn.

Diagphragm is a muscle which mean it can grow in Strengh. Breathing is the primal function so you make the equation.

Damn if any of you hasn't done the breathing excercises by Eric Arceneaux you should jump on it asap. Tried recording myself and my voice sounds alot better than i'm used to. I don't think i would have recognized my own voice if i didn't know it was me lol.
 
Do the "How To Sing From The Diaphragm " videos and also the "Professional Vocal Warmup" videos.

I find that I am still having

I find that I am still having a tough time guaging how well I am projecting in loud enviroments. I sometimes feel like I am having a tough time hearing (but my hearing is fine), so it is either my projection or I am getting distracted by external stimuli.

This may be a long shot, but I'm trying to listen to listen to my voice instead of feeling the resonance in my diaphragm. I am going to tackle these breathing exercises big time and see how it works out.

I think having a loud voice is more mental than physical or technique. I used to be loud as fuck but people always told me to be quiet so i became kind of quiet in middle/high scool. Now i'm loud again except for when i'm stressed out and tired.

The exercises above just helped my voice sound deeper and more relaxed, which is sexy and masculine.

Good point. I'm usually in

Good point. I'm usually in the right mental state to be loud in a party environment, more specifically though  I'm trying to project and make my voice more distinguishable amongst all the chaos. I physically am not getting loud enough.

Those 360 breathing exercises are fire. Everyone get your ass up and try them. I wasn't getting any expansion in my back and intercostals until those videos.
