How to breathe and sculpt your way to a flat dancer’s tummy!
Dancers Have Beautiful, Strong and Sexy Centers
Whether you are watching hot new TV shows like Dancing with the Stars on ABC USA or So You Think You Can Dance on Fox TV USA, you can see that the dancers all have flat sexy abdominals that are not bulky or thick. They’re absolutely stunning to watch, both the women and the men.
The greatest testimony of how dance moves and dance technique shape the abs is to watch the competitors when they first begin competing and the final episodes. Their bodies transform into even more beautiful and sexy shapes from show one to the finals. I am sold on how dancing and dance technique defines your body so much that I make my athletes, professionals and novices do dance moves and use dance philosophy to prepare them for their competitions.
Suck and Tuck
As you lie on your back with your knees bent, place your feet flat on the floor hip width apart. Relax your neck and shoulders. Begin every ab exercise with this technique. Suck your abdominals in and press them back and down into your pelvic floor. Then tuck your pelvis under so that your tailbone is pointing upward toward the sky. This allows your lower abdominals to become flat. This technique builds great abdominal definition and greatly increases overall strength. Thus you have the Suck and Tuck Dancer’s Secret Abdominal Training Technique.
In this position, power breathing is performed by taking a slow deep breath through the nose about 75% of your lung capacity. Breathe in to the stomach using the diaphragm. Exhale through the mouth plugging your teeth with your tongue and hiss while tensing the abs until a full contraction has been obtained. This should be performed to the beat of four counts or four seconds. Four seconds up, four seconds down. Inhale before you curl or crunch and exhale as you roll down or return to starting position. Hold at the top for four counts and you inhale again then exhale and you roll back down.
