What is Hypopressives ?

The hypopressive Abdominal Method is the modern European technique of getting strong abdominal muscles in a healthy way. It is a group of rhythmical postures and breathing exercises used to balance the strength and the muscle tone between abdominal, pelvic floor, and your breathing muscles.

The Hypopressive abdominal exercises reduce the pressure in the intra-abdominal cavity responsible for that unwanted belly that does not go away even after thousands of sit ups.

What is the difference between Hypopresive abdominal exercises and traditional Abdominal (crunches and sit ups)?

Traditional abdominal exercises make your abdominal stronger. At the same time, increases intra-abdominal pressure; pushing organs down, weakening your pelvic floor muscles, and increasing the chance of having health issues such as incontinence, hernias, sexual dysfunctions, and back pain.

Hypopresives make your abdominal muscles stronger and decrease the intra-abdominal pressure, putting organs back in place, making the pelvic floor muscles stronger, reducing waist perimeter, preventing and resolving health issues including organ prolapsed, diastasis rectis, hernias, urinary incontinence, back pain, poor posture, swollen legs, and sexual dysfunctions.
