Together with our expert, breathing gymnastics instructor Antonina Kravets, we have already revealed the secrets of breathing exercises. Now let's look at one of the specific areas - oxysize.
Breathing exercises are abdominal breathing techniques combined with exercise. Two popular directions of breathing practices - bodyflex and oxysize - differ in the technique of the breathing itself. We have already learned how to do body flex. Today on the agenda is oxysize and its subtleties. Contents of the article 1. What is oxysize and what are the main principles of this gymnastics? 2.

What is oxysize and what are the main principles of this gymnastics?
Oxysize is the author's breathing technique by the American Jill Johnson, based on the combination of continuous diaphragmatic breathing with physical exercises. The breathing cycle, in which one approach to the exercise is performed, consists of a sequence of inhalation, three in-breaths, exhalation and three pre-exhales.
What is the difference between the oxysize breathing technique and bodyflex breathing?
Firstly, oxysize does not provide for holding the breath, and exercise is associated with constant diaphragmatic breathing.
Secondly, oxysize is performed without a sharp twist of the abdomen under the costal arch, which makes the technique softer and more atraumatic in comparison, for example, with the bodyflex technique.
Is it possible to master breathing on your own without the participation of a trainer? What happens if you don't breathe correctly?
Mastering oxysize breathing without a coach is difficult, but possible. The main advantage of oxysize in case of erroneous self-breathing is the absence of possible adverse health effects, since oxysize does not provide for holding the breath.
Who is oxysize recommended for?
… The indisputable advantage of the oxysize technique is the reduction in blood pressure. I personally recorded a decrease in pressure in my clients by more than 30 units during the training session, and this positive dynamics persisted after training for several more days.
The Diabetes Association of Canada, after a series of studies, has come to the conclusion that doing oxysize leads to a significant increase in the body's insulin sensitivity. I have a young girl who has had diabetes since she was three years old. Before classes, she does not take the usual dose of insulin, because after several weeks of visiting the gym, she was surprised to find that during training, her blood glucose level drops, that is, breathing according to the oxysize technique leads to a decrease in the daily dose of insulin.
Oxisize classes, combined with a specially developed set of exercises, increase blood circulation, which allows you to stimulate the process of tissue regeneration and localize, and then create the prerequisites for eliminating salt deposits. Thus, oxysize in combination with a competent exercise program is a powerful weapon for successfully combating arthrosis, arthritis and other joint diseases. For more than two years now, a hairdresser has been attending my classes for 64 years with a diagnosis of arthritis of the right shoulder, which by the time she entered the gym was going to leave the profession: hand movements in the process of work caused severe pain. But after two years of constant studies, she continues to work actively and even opened her own school of hairdressing!
My practice over many years has shown that oxysize is especially effective in reducing excess volume in the upper body. At the same time, a significant positive trend in weight loss of the hips and legs is also observed.
The oxysize technique, like body flex, involves daily exercises for 20-30 minutes. However, two to three hours of training a week will also bring tangible results.
Classes should be carried out exclusively on an empty stomach, no earlier than three to four hours after eating. Otherwise, the work of the abdominal muscles during breathing will put negative pressure on the stomach and intestines, which can lead to nausea and other unpleasant consequences.
A fundamentally wrong belief. The oxysize technique is softer in performance compared to body flex, but the combination with exercises is much more difficult. Imagine for yourself: one breathing cycle, consisting of a sequence of inhalation, three in-breaths, exhalation and three pre-exhales, is accompanied by a whole series of contractions of various muscle groups of the abdomen. Try to combine this breathing with the execution of the most elementary abdominal exercise - and your illusions about the ease of oxysize will instantly dissipate.
It is necessary to perform strictly four breathing cycles in a row
In my coaching practice, I was convinced that you need to start with three, and in the case of poor physical fitness, with two cycles. Otherwise, strict adherence to four breathing cycles during one approach can lead to overtraining and rupture of muscle fibers. The intensity of the load should increase gradually from session to session.
Oxysize is more effective than bodyflex
There is no more or less effective technique, there is a technique just for you! A hypotonic person, for example, may feel discomfort and dizziness due to a drop in blood pressure. In this case, as in many others, bodyflex is more suitable.
Oxysize is more effective when combined with active loads and sports
You should not combine active sports and strength training with oxysize classes, otherwise you will hardly be able to lose weight.
Oxysize has no contraindications
And this is one of the myths! Look for a list of contraindications on the next page.
