What are hypopressive abs?

The Hypopressive Abdominal Gymnastics, GAH: are a series of exercises, especially postural, created by Marcel Caufriez, that at first were thought for post-partum, in which the abdomen is strengthened, after the musculature has been submitted a lot of tension as it is at the time of delivery, yes, without harming the pelvic floor, as if it happens with the classic abdominals.

However, today, the applications of this gym go further, such as: back pain caused by postural problems, since it allows the back to work in a global way even when there is pain, in addition to improving our aesthetics. We must take into account two contraindications of hypopressive gymnastics: hypertension and pregnancy.

Pelvic floor problems can be caused by reasons of the uro-gynecological system (urinary or fecal incontinence, prolapses), postural problems, problems of the spine (scoliosis, rectification) or aesthetic problems such as abdominal sagging or swelling of the belly.
