Learn physical exercises to build core strength—which can improve your singing. Many of the muscles used to shape our voice are in our body's core, and the exercises here are designed to build and tone these muscle sets. This video shows how to use a stability ball to work on building strength in the glutes and the bridges of the core.
- These are called glute bridges,…'cause they really focus on your glute muscles.…This is a very easy way to…workout your glute major muscle group…and core strength at the same time.…And the stability ball really helps protect your back.…You basically balance on the ball…with your lower back nice and supported by the ball,…and kind of in the same position as doing the crunches…where your upper legs are parallel to the ground,…and hands behind your head,…neck and shoulders very relaxed,…shoulder blades descending,…pulled down your back down your spine.…
And you're going to…do…very easy, simple…squats where you're rolling back and forth on the ball,…dropping down as low as you can.…You'll feel little bit of burn in your thighs.…And…in your…glutes.…You can do 20 of these to start with.…They're very gentle.…(breathes deeply)…And all the while, you're building core strength…'cause you're balancing and maintaining your position…on this wobbly ball surface.…
Those are…glute bridges.…
