Larynx Slide Exercise: Build a powerful and strong throat!

LSE = Larynx slide exercise
The targeted individuals for this specific training is people who have muscles related to vocalization with less than 20 Tone.
The purpose of this exercise is to build overall power, strength and edurance of the throat.

Note1:If your muscles relating to vocalization are more than 20 Tone, you should not do LSE training. This is because the cricothyroid articulation is not easy to slide, and may result in injury to your muscles.
Also, keep in mind that your muscles might become more stiff because they cannot extend and contract properly.

Note2:A lot of people who did LSE training gave me feedback. Such as, “My throat isn’t even tired after I sing for a long time. My voice is not hoarse after letting out a high-pitched voice. Someone told me my voice sounded stronger than before!” My response to them was, “If you are a professional singer please exercise and care for your throat muscles. Always give your best performance all the time, and keep singing for many years to come.

Note3:I sometimes get requests asking, “Please show me photos of how to do LSE training.” I usually decline because this exercise might cause injuries when trying it without knowledge.
If you do not have the precise skill to be able to judge how strong and how many times to perform a specific exercise when training muscles, the small musculus extrinsic laryngis will get strained. I accept no responsibility for anyone’s training. Be careful and train at your own risk.
