I feel confused about inner corset and I hope I can receive some help with it.
From what I have understood, the inner corset movement involves rib anchor, which is a tucking of the ribs that results in the lower border of the ribcage to become flush with the rest of the abdomen.
But I have also seen that the action of inner corset done properly ends up creating a protrusion of the ribcage (the book says like a greyhound) as the transversus abdominis sucks in and the contours of the ribcage become more pronounced ; doesn't that cancel the rib anchor ?
It feels very confusing as it looks like the instructions for these two things are opposite, yet they are supposed to be used simultaneously and work with one another.
Are the internal obliques supposed to create some sort of resistance to the lifting of the ribcage up and away from the hips ? I don't understand how I can make the contours of the lower border of my ribcage flush and pronounced at the same time. Could you offer some insight ?
Thank you for all the great work and support.
