The BREATH BELT™ gets to the source of all bad posture issues in any setting whether sitting, standing, or moving at the studio. Tight necks, shoulders, thoracic and lumbar issues all are rooted from a lack of balanced Intra Abdominal Pressure deep in your core. When you program yourself to be a ‘chest breather’ or ‘no breather,’ you literally are de-activating your respiratory system making you weaker, AND YOUR GLUTES WEAKER.
An adult breathes 25,000 times a day and over 9,000,000 times a year! If your breathing pattern is incorrect, that’s 9,000,000 reps each year affecting your movement and energy. This needs to be corrected as the BREATH IS TIED to Hip Mobility and your Glute Firing Pattern. To re-gain your diaphragm’s trust, the core respiratory muscles need proper cues to get their mojo back.
The BREATH BELT™ is the only compression belt of its kind that uses internal distraction to strengthen the muscles that supporting breath capacity, control & coordination with each inhale and exhale. Diaphragmatic breathing and hip mobility are one in the same as they are tied systems, and is recommended they are trained together.
SI JOINT DISTRACTION
For all front side distraction below the belly button, always recommended that SI JOINT distraction is utilized. Recommended folded up hip circle, folded fabric or 2 half myofascial balls. Comfort may vary between client.
PSOAS & OBLIQUE DISTRACTION
First time users: recommended 2 distraction balls for the Psoas area, located on left and right side between point of hip (ASIS) and belly button. More advanced users may try Oblique distraction on side body between rib and hip. Recommended distraction pressure increase from rolled up socks, racquet ball, myofascial ball, tennis ball. Comfort may vary between each client.
The BREATH BELT™ immediately promotes a proper diaphragmatic breath pattern, which in turn improves the glute firing pattern in extension. It is designed to compress and support sacroiliac joints relieving stress and instability, and instantly promotes neutral hip alignment for individuals with Anterior Pelvic Tilt. BREATH BELT™ is the perfect catalyst for teaching Hip Hinge for functional movement, Olympic Lifting, and can be used for any movement practice. If you have a pair of hips, the BREATH BELT™ will work for you.
When you breath better, you recover faster. Exercise depletes energy, fluids, and breaks down muscle. Hydration and the right fuel are only part of training and recovery. What athletes do in the moments during and immediately after competition also determines how quickly their bodies rebuild muscle and replenish nutrients. This helps maintain endurance, speed and accuracy. Increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol fare release from living in a sympathetic state. This also has been seen to decrease production of glycogen and carbohydrates that are stored for energy use during physical activity. If you cannot recover it increases the possibility of fatigue, low energy and poor focus at game time.
Warm Up Faster
Clients are amazed when they see the same result in half the time on their dynamic warmup. Clients quickly learn to resist the compressive forces of the Breath Belt. This forces Clients to default into an improved breathing and movement pattern. The battle to hold the proper amount of Intra-Abdominal Pressure in any movement elevates blood pressure releasing adrenaline. When you get to the source of tension in your body, tense muscles are relieved from head to toe.
Losing lung elasticity can cause air to build up in the lungs, so there’s not as much space for the diaphragm to contract in order to breathe in oxygen. As a result, your body uses neck, back, and chest muscles to help you breathe, triggering a sympathetic response. When the body thinks it is over stressed, it is less powerful and reacts slower in movement.
Correct Anterior Pelvic Tilt
Sedentary lifestyle and poor movement patterns affect the vast majority of adults. Over time this results in tight abdominal muscles that don’t function properly. This can lead to spinal compression affecting a variety of painful movement issues. Breathing into the Breath Belt corrects tight hip flexors by balancing the hips and decompressing the spine.
Regulate Intra-Abdominal Pressure
When the diaphragm is restricted, the abdominals lose their elasticity and the body becomes less efficient at creating a balanced intra-abdominal pressure with each movement. This often causes pain, discomfort and loss of range of motion in the hips and lumbar spine. Breathing into the Breath Belt stops this unhealthy process and even reverses it so you get back to maintaining correct intra-abdominal pressure.
Turn on Abdominals via Tactile Breathing Cues
Using the Internal Distraction balls, in our recommended placements, all have the same results. The obliques, rectus abdominis and the transverse abdominals lengthen and improve function. This allows You to transfer intra-abdominal pressure with ease whether you are sitting, standing, or working out!
The BREATH BELT™ PROTOCOL helps anyone get back on track to improving their diaphragmatic breath pattern while improving hip mobility & stability. The BREATH BELT™ is MOBILE, and can be used it for box jumps, Olympic lift, hikes or yoga. When lifting heavier loads, strap another belt over top of it for additional compression. Remember- The BREATH BELT is a training tool for teaching proper hip technique, not for maxing out! It is perfect for any athlete battling Anterior Pelvic Tilt, promoting a better balanced outcome in hip mobility for any beginner or advanced exercise practitioner.

Wear the BREATH BELT just above the leg bones that protrude from the sides of your hips (trochanters). First, close the first layer of the belt tightly around your hips with the yellow balls at your lower lateral obliques. Once 1st layer is secure, pull the 2nd layer of bands around to secure your preferred level of tightness. To ensure the best fit, always put the belt on in this manner.
