Phil McDougall will be teaching another workshop at HAC; this one is on proper and effective breathing. Easy way to raise your overall athletic potential. Early bird tickets are $39 for members, $69 for non-members; sale ends 4/21 at midnight, at which time ticket prices will increase to $59 for members and $89 for non-members.

Practical Teaching Points:

- Using all parts of the diaphragm
- Activating the weightlifting belt you were born with
- Creating intra-abdominal pressure
- Breathing anatomically and mechanically
- Matching anatomical breathing to high rep exercises for efficiency and faster recovery
- Matching mechanical breathing to low rep, higher load exercises for better force production
- Building resilience against injury through breath mastery
- Optimising breathing for increased mobility and breath application to stretching
- Reaching oxygen saturation before a WOD: decreasing recovery time between rounds and maximising reps achievable
- Neurological hacks for increasing neural drive and maximising tension
- Creating torque and stabilising vulnerable areas of the body for optimal lifting mechanics
