    Very useful! I was confused or took it too literally (to the extreme) for a while when ppl or articles would say, “make sure you’re resisting your ribs lowering with exhalation.”
    I got into the habit of locking my ribs wide (too wide) and would just end up feeling sore the next day. lol
    It makes sense like you said to try to maintain expansion but not locking up like youre bracing for impact or trying to keep the diaphram lowered “at all costs”.

    If I’m doing lower rib expansion too wide, will I feel tension in my throat?

    great video as always. I thought I would mention though that I am using headphones and it sounds windy somehow. I know you are indoors, so I’m not sure what it could be. Maybe it is an air vent or something?

    now I got it!!! thanks a lot! cuz I also thought that you should contract your abs as if someone was about to punch you in the guts hah.. guess I should be more attentive cuz vocal coaches only talk about lower abs being engaged, right??

    Thank you! Appoggio is NOT an application of force.

    I have figured out that I am clenching my belly too much which is causing my tone to be tight and sharp. Are there some specific exercises I can do to help me relax without losing the support?

    My ribs collapse very quickly and when i try to hold that expansion it creates tension

    Habitually constant locked solar plexis is why I can’t breathe. I literally, actually suffocate myself.
