Strengthening the muscular system: 5-minute Mueller exercises

Flexibility - the ability of a person to perform exercises with a large amplitude. Also, flexibility is the absolute range of motion in a joint or a number of joints, which is achieved in an instantaneous effort. Flexibility is important in some sporting disciplines, especially in rhythmic gymnastics. In humans, flexibility is not the same in all joints. An occupant who easily performs the longitudinal splits can hardly perform the transverse splits. In addition, depending on the type of training, the flexibility of various joints may increase. Also for a single joint, the flexibility may be different in different directions.

Strengthening the muscular system is necessary for everyone, since this group of muscles ensures the correct position of the spine and maximum protection of the internal organs.

It is important to understand that the main role in such protection is played by the deep muscles of the back, chest and abdomen.

Posture disorders and many diseases often occur against the background of a weakened muscular corset, which is why decided to tell which exercises are best suited to strengthen the muscle groups that form the muscular corset.

Self-test before strengthening the muscular system

Before proceeding directly to the strengthening of the muscular system, it is better to check in what condition it is at the moment. Later, this self-test can be carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of the exercises.

Method 1

  • Lie belly down, tear off arms and legs from the floor (at the same time!).
  • Reaching the navel, tighten the bark muscles, bend your back and lift the chest.

In this position, you must hold out a minute. If you can’t do it, it’s time to seriously think about strengthening the muscular system.

Method 2

  • Stand on all fours so that the legs at right bends form right angles.
  • Look in front of you and stretching your neck, stretch your left arm and right leg (or vice versa) back and forth, respectively.

The purpose of the test is to keep the balance. If you did not succeed, it is time to work on the stabilizer muscles.

Ways to strengthen the muscular system: 5-minute Muller system

Many exercises are aimed at strengthening the muscular corset: fitness, Pilates, and barbells with dumbbells. However, there is an excellent gymnastics, which is enjoyed by almost everyone and does not require trips to the gym or special equipment.

The Müller system consists of 60 respiratory movements, performed simultaneously with ten exercises with the calculation of 1 exercise = 6 breaths. In the Müller system, there are three degrees of difficulty in doing the exercises; he recommends that everyone start with the exercises of the least degree of difficulty.

The first five exercises below are performed slowly 6 times, i.e. 1 exercise = 1 respiratory movement. The second five exercises are performed at an accelerated pace: maximum movements for 4 respiratory movements, 2 respiratory movements - rest. Breathing during exercise to strengthen the muscular system is necessary for the chest and through the nose.

Description of 10 exercises Muller to strengthen the muscular system

Since Müller recommends everyone to start classes for strengthening the muscular corset from the initial level of complexity, and to proceed to the complication of exercises only after practicing their skills, we decided to bring the first-degree exercises for beginners to do the Muller system.

Exercise 1
