We all want that perfect body, but we are also often tied up by the hustle and bustle of life that we rarely have the time to exercise and keep fit.
Well, it looks like losing weight quickly and easily might be possible now with this 5-minute breathing method that Japanese actress Tomomi Ishimura had highly raved about.
If you thought that it only works on her, she tested it out on other guests on a Japanese TV show and the results actually showed with each individual!
Read on to discover what the 5-minute breathing method is all about.
The 5-minute breathing method
The entire exercise follows a one-time basic breathing method where you’ll basically inhale for three seconds before exhaling for seven seconds.
Your ribs will naturally widen as you breathe, which helps relieve pain and tight muscles, resulting in a thinner back and a smaller waist.
