Advanced Vacuum Exercises

What is shown here is an example of what I do with breathing vacuum exercises as part of my morning routine. Unfortunately, this is not the spot that I typically do this in, but it is a spot I do go to occassionally. I wanted a better back drop for this video than my home, […]
