Fill It Up!

Some great coaching points today for the deadlift.  Carmen was speaking about how the breath is involved in creating a "pressure wrap" if you will, in the midline and around the spine.  A big inhale in the stomach fills up the midline cavity, and then bracing with that inflated midline creates a lot of pressure.  This pressure stabilizes the midline when lifting, and that is one of if not the main goal in lifts, is to generate and maintain your midline stability.  Another example of how understanding the breath can be greatly beneficial in movement.
