If you can increase the expiratory pressure when vocalizing, you will get vibrating vocal cords. The glottis becomes the negative pressure, and the glottis opens and closes easily. These factors can make you sing a song at a fast speed and improve the vibrato.
Expiratory pressure is relevant to vocal volume, quality of the voice, and even ease a hoarse voice. This time, I’ll introduce new and very effective training technique for breathing.
Please see the following figures.
Figure A:Stand up and relax.
Figure B:Bend at the waist, pull your arms down and take a breath in, then breathe out, keeping your head in a horizontal position.
When you finish A and B, you are done warming up.
Figure C: Take a deep breath in, and please do the following two things when taking a breath in at the same time.
1:Stick out your belly putting a slight pressure to push it down.
2:Pull up your shoulder blades and chest.
After taking a breath in maximally, taking a breath out slowly and return your belly and shoulder blades to the original position.
Repeat this exercise approximately 10 times.
The reason why this training is really effective in achieving increased expiratory pressure, is because the muscles of the larynx are getting to a relaxed state and when they are eased up, air can get in more easily.
Sticking out your belly and adding slight pressure down is expanding the abdominal cavity whilst moving the diaphragm down, which activates the thoracic motion when pulling your shoulder blades up.
Please move your muscles within maximum range but do not strain them.
Feel the air going in. belly=>chest=>throat=>mouse and nose.
If you perfect this breathing exercise, you will definitely increase your breathing strength and pressure control.
In turn, helping broaden your vocalization spectrum.
Note:I’ll explain more details about the exercise from a more technical point of view.
(1) Rectus abdominis is parallel to the floor and will expand the abdominal cavity easily.
(2)You can pull up the diaphragm, making it wider, because the abdominal cavity is expanding.
(3)You can increase the range of motion on the diaphragm easily after stretching the crura of the diaphragm, connecting the third lumbar vertebra.
(4)Exercise is displayed to the muscles of the back when breathing.
(5)You can expand the chest by pulling up the shoulder blades.
(6)Exercise is also displayed for the rhomboid muscle and can help keep good posture.
(7)If you stick out your belly with slight pressure down, with lifting up the pelvis, you are also simultaneously doing abdominal training.
