What You Will Learn at the Second Wind Seminar

Russian Breathing & Relaxation Techniques for Superior Performance

Before focusing on anything else, an athlete must become strong first.

But what comes second?


The three lines below follow the improvement in different qualities-strength, power, and the speed of voluntary muscle relaxation-in game athletes from a low intermediate level on the left to advanced on the right:

In 17 out of the 20 sports evaluated by Russian scientists the relaxation ability was more important than either strength or power at the elite level. It was suggested that the strength and power reached by hig­­­h intermediates (Level I-CMS) are sufficient for reaching world class performance in many events—and athletes progress from intermediate to world class through improved relaxation.

Always looking for the edge, for three quarters of a century Soviet and Russian sports scientists have studied, invented, and perfected numerous breathing and relaxation methods. From basic muscle shaking drills to sophisticated tension mastery protocols to esoteric breathing exercises.

These low-tech/high concept methods, taught by Pavel at the Second Wind seminar, deliver remarkable improvements in sports performance and well-being:

  • Speed
  • Reaction time
  • Coordination
  • Endurance—without compromising power
  • Recovery
  • Resilience—physical and psychological
  • Athletic longevity

They work for all healthy people, from general fitness newbies to intermediate athletes to champions.
