Introduction

Homework Mat Certification Course 1. Name the two possibilities for pelvic position when laying supine and why you would use one over the other in two different exercises. The two possibilities for pelvic positions are neutral and imprinted. In neutral pelvis the natural lordotic curve of the lumbar spine is present. Imprinted means a slight lumbar curve into flexion is present. During imprinted spine the normal curve lengthens toward flexion by engaging the oblique abdominals to help bring the rib cage closer to the pelvis. I would use neutral pelvic placement for the One Leg Circle, since the essence of the exercise is stability of the pelvis and torso in neutral while being challenged by unilateral leg movement. Imprinted spine would be recommended for the Hundred since both feet are lifted off of the ground. ...read more.

Middle

Pelvic Placement: Emphasis of stabilization of the pelvis and lumbar spine in neutral or imprinted position. When you are supine neutral can be noticed by the triangle formed by the ASIS and the symphysis pubis being parallel to the mat. If the pubic bone is lower than the ASIS and anterior tilt results, if it is higher, a posterior pelvic tilt results. Rib Cage Placement: To help keep the rib cage in good alignment you should be aware of maintaining the abdominal wall engagement and not popping the ribs when laying supine or allowing the rib cage to deviate forward when sitting with a neutral spine. Allow the ribs to soften with the exhale and feel the ribs closing towards each other while the lower front ribs slide down toward the pelvis. Emphasize breathing into the back and side ribs during exhalation. ...read more.

Conclusion

3. Name the four layers of the abdominals. Which aid in respiration? Flexion of the spine? Stabilization of the neutral spine? Rectus Abdominis, Transversus Abdominis, Internal Obliques, External Obliques are the four layer of abdominals. Rectus, and External and Internal Obliques flex the spine. Transversus aids in respiration and helps to compress the abdominal cavity to help support the spine in neutral. 4. How does the breath relate to flexion and extension of the spine? What are some images that particularly relate to flexion and extension and or promote good breathing patterns? An exhale is encouraged when the spine is flexing since the ribs naturally roll down and back during exhalation. Inhalation is encouraged when the spine is extending since the ribs usually lengthen up and out during inhalation. Inhaling gently through the nose and exhaling through pursed lips or as if exhaling through a straw, this will help to encourage an engagement of the transversus abdominis to support the lumbar spine. ...read more.

    Therefore energy can no longer be released from glycogen. Hydrogen can displace calcuim which alters muscle contraction.
