"I saw Dell-Maree on PBS one night. I bought the video because of her posture. She does the DVD and the PBS appearance in a halter top showing her shoulder muscles. Her shoulders were relaxed. Her whole upper body looks completely relaxed, which is what caught my attention. Most people with great posture seem stiff in their upper carriage and that looks unnatural. Not Dell-Maree.
The only muscle she has you work on is the deep transverse abdominis, which is completely ignored because it is so deep in your core. Her video shows you where this muscle is and she explains how to make sure you are engaging this deep core muscle by aligning your chest, your hips and your sternum. All your other muscles, like your shoulders and neck, for example, are completely relaxed when you follow her method. Her video shows how your ab area naturally flattens out when you are lying down (or sitting or standing) and have those three points aligned. She calls this method a workout because it elongates your torso, works this core (deep) muscle (transverse abdominis) and that helps you to burn more calories. This neglected muscle is supposed to be worked moderately but isn't because most people don't use their core muscles properly. Because the transverse abdominis runs across your entire torso (from front to back of your spine) it does increase calorie burning. But it also elongates your torso and increases your core strength so effortlessly by focusing one muscle."
