After 5 weeks, I finally got to do almost the full routine! Except for one excercise, the bridge, and this due to a pain in my right shoulder when doing it. I do it 3 times a week.

My wife decided to do the routine as well. She feels more confortable doing it at home than going to the gym. Actually, this is a complete routine, she told me.

So far It's been very fun and healthy :thup:

We also played around with the Lion pose. It's lucky that we didn't have to show it on video, LOL! And we've tried a diaphragm stretch, but I haven't been able to find it on YT because I don't know what it's called. Maybe Niall will find it.
It's abdominal lifts/stomach pumps.

Here's a yogi during just the abdominal lift:


And here's a fitness guru showing the next level up from that: 'pumping' your stomach/viscera in and out during the overall abdominal lift:


Once you get the hang of it, it's surprising how many you can do despite having empty lungs. But see if you can manage the basic lift first (seated, standing, on all fours, whichever). That's challenging enough!

Great to hear! And that it is something you and your wife can do together for fun and health. :clap:

Don't worry about the bridge, it's one of the hardest ones. Better be safe, and not force too much.
