Hypopressive for Sport & Fitness


Hypopressive Training

Hypopressive training prevents back pain and general joint problems. Improving coordination reduces the likelihood of injury, even in everyday life. By improving blood circulation, concentration and mental performance are increased. Overall, regular training that takes into account individual fitness leads to improved well-being and an increase in self-esteem. Training to increase fitness therefore always has a sporty and feel-good aspect


Hypopressive Technique and Athletic Performance

Every single athlete wants to stay in optimal shape under optimal conditions. In this way, the athlete’s breathing patterns must be correct, he must be resistant to fatigue, maintain good postural biomechanics and effective muscles, and control pre-competitive anxiety or the competition itself. Hypopressive techniques or hypopressive abdominal gymnastics is a postural and respiratory work method that, as a whole, can benefit the athlete or amateur athlete who practises them. Some of the improvements you may find are

  • Improvement of respiratory parameters
  • Improvement of resistance to oxygen desaturation
  • Improvement of tonic-postural balance 
  • Improvement of blood values 

In addition, it is essential for athletes to introduce a special pelvic floor prevention programme, as pelvic floor problems are very common among young athletes. Hypopressive exercise or hypopressive abdominal gymnastics is effective in preventing and rehabilitating these diseases. As a respiratory method, it helps to relax the hypertonic state or excessive stiffness of the diaphragm, which is so tense in athletes, e.g. in the background during long training hours. The performance of the respiratory muscles will improve and this will lead to an increase in the endurance of the respiratory muscles


Hypopressive Exercises

Hypopressive means low pressure, the prefix “hypo” comes from Greek and means minus or under. Many of the traditional core exercises we know, such as crunches, boards, etc., are hyperpressive, i.e. they increase the internal pressure. Hypopressive exercises reduce the internal pressure in the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic cavity. Pressure always finds a way to find the weakest point to try to “flee”, which can lead to health problems. Everyone experiences increased physical pressure from daily activities, training sessions, poor posture habits or even just gravity. Hypopressive abdominals are performed with respiratory APNEA: This leads to a decrease in oxygen saturation and a specific postural body reaction. If we combine systematic physical training to this oxygen deficiency during hypopressive sessions, the body metabolizes faster and the values of the red series or blood count can be increased naturally


Benefits of Hypopressive Training

  • Increase General Performance
  • Improvement of Respiratory Function
  • Reinforcement of the Deep-Seated Musculature in the entire Body
  • Injury Prevention
  • Alternative to Classical Abdominal Exercises
  • Natural Detoxification of Liver and Kidneys


SaansCore adapts the hypopressive technique to the needs of each patient. Our courses are personalized and consist of small groups. The role of a physiotherapist is important both to ensure proper muscle contraction and to correct the posture of each patient during each physical effort
