Recently, a short video in only 15 seconds is attracting great attention on the social network Reddit. In the clip, a girl shows off a special skill that makes everyone around panic: Make her whole abdomen disappear in an instant.
After taking a deep breath, the woman “collected” the stomach area in front of the abdomen, creating a large concave area, exposing all the ribs. The guy next to her also put his finger inside to prove that this is not a product of photoshop.
The special and amazing skills of the girl in the clip make viewers wonder. A lively debate broke out. In fact, this is a skill that is not too strange in the gym called belly breathing. In yoga, it is called the Uddiyana Bandha exercise. The belly breathing skill helps people toning their muscles and slimming the waist area.
This exercise requires the performer to inhale and pull in the abdomen deeply, so the stomach is also pressed in. However, to get the effect that looks “magical” like the girl in the video is of course not easy, but it requires a high degree of fluency after a long time of training with a toned, low-fat body. Many netizens who are gym people can’t help but admire the girl’s ability and her admirable body.
Another netizen said that just by taking a deep breath and trying to pull in the belly, anyone can create the same bizarre-looking effect as above but to different degrees.
