Madeleineziegertgolf | Breathing

Did you know that checking out your breathing before any athletic event should be as routine as making sure that your shoes are tied.

Step 1. Imagine that your lungs have three parts, a lower,middle and upper section. Now close your eyes and imagine that you are just going to fill up the bottom, or lower, third of your lungs as you breathe in. Do this by imagining that you are pushing out your diaphragm, stretching it to its max, and then opening up your abdomen. 

Step 2. Next, imagine filling the second third of your lung cavity. Do this by expanding your chest cavity and raising your rib cage and chest to their maximum capacity.

Step 3. Finally, fill the last sector of your lungs by raising your chest and shoulders.

Do not let your body be in the way of possibilities:)

The weather is perfect at home and I keep playing everyday with Africa in mind!
