I just concluded my talk at The Embodiment Conference on “How To Build An Unbreakable Body (& Life)” and wow was it a blast! I promised the wonderful attendees that I would put up this video to further illustrate what we talked about at that session.
Sidenote: You can still register for the conference (it’s free!) and my talk will be available to view for the next 48 hours. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. Or, you can purchase the library of talks as well if you’d rather watch it later on.
There was a question about where a good starting point is for building a strong torso after an injury.
My response to that question is this: the very first thing you need to do to build a strong torso is to learn how to stack your ribcage over your pelvis and be able to breathe and brace in that position.
When your ribcage and/or pelvis are not stacked over each other, it becomes much more difficult to do numerous things. Being able to brace appropriately and adequately helps you:
- breathe fully
- brace your body so that you can pick up something heavy without straining
- move fluidly and with graceful control
- reduce incontinence issues
- support digestion
- and much more!
And so, I would begin by learning how to brace and breathe with this sequence in the video below. The amount of support you’ll want under your head and shoulders indicates how much shifting is needed currently to get your base of your ribcage stacked over your pelvis.
By using this sequence along with physical training that sends the signals your body needs to create the response you desire of being more stacked than it is right now, in time you will need less support because you are becoming more stacked.
If you’d like to learn more about building your Six Pillars and becoming unbreakable, check out my Unbreakable Body program. You’ll learn what each of your Pillars needs, and build them up so you have a strong foundation. And of course, by doing the program you’ll learn how to take care of your Six Pillars yourself and can take that knowledge with you for the rest of your life.
