ABDOMINAL CRUNCHING WITH NO RISK

It is a technique developed by the physiotherapist and anatomist Bladine Calais-Germain that consists in a progression of movements that work the abdominal muscles without ever pressuring the perineum or the lumbar spine.

If when practising other techniques you have felt physical discomfort or pain on your lumbar zone, making it impossible to continue the exercise, or if you have had incontinence symptoms as a consequence of your regular physical activity; NOW you have the chance to try a NEW SET of exercises that will strengthen your abdominal muscles AVOIDING THE USUAL RISKS OF ABDOMINAL CRUNCHING.

WHAT BENEFITS DOES IT PROVIDE?

1. It improves muscle tone and elasticity of all four groups of abdominal muscles.
