And with these improvements Ivete is able to sing with energy throughout the whole carnival marathon.
Ivete Sangalo Headlines the Carnival in Brazil
As usual this singer, songwriter, actress and TV Host wows the audience at every procession. She also manages to do this on every float she performs from. For Ivete is one of the most popular and best-selling Brazilian female singers. In fact she is most often recognized by her powerful voice, charisma and live performances. And her performances are always full of life and energy.
Ivete Sangalo’s Marathon Performance
Ivete’s performance tells her life story in song. She begins by singing about her childhood in Juazeiro. She then performs songs that tell of her career path, finishing with her becoming a star.
The whole event will require her to be emotionally fit. And she will also need to be physically fit too. Therefore Ivete attends regular gym sessions. But she also disciplines herself to train her breathing muscles with her POWERbreathe IMT.
POWERbreathe IMT helps Ivete through her Performance
As a singer Ivete needs to be able to control her breath to ensure she doesn’t run out of breath while performing. And she does this by connecting with and using her diaphragm.
So Ivete’s diaphragm needs to be strong to help her control her breathing. But also her breathing muscles need to have the stamina to power her through her performance. This will help her to perform at her best. And this is why she has chosen to incorporate POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) into her daily training.
Inspiratory Muscle Training Benefits
- Increases the ability to inflate the lungs (take deeper breaths)
- Improves the ability to control the breath
- Enhances the ability to sustain forceful breathing (breathing does not become fatigued)
- Training may affect the intrinsic laryngeal muscles which control the action of the larynx
Finally, POWERbreathe IMT as a component of vocal exercises will help make full use of the lungs, and how you inhale affects how well you exhale. And how well you exhale influences your performance.
