BCS PROTOCOL

BCS PROTOCOL & STRETCHING

Renee is a certified BCS Protocol Instructor, offering BCS Protocol stretching lessons aimed to increase the flexibility of your chest and back, help to correct posture (i.e. rounded shoulders) and increase your total lung capacity.

Lessons are beneficial for freedivers, athletes, dancers and even for those who don’t practice any sports and want to improve their breathing and flexibility.

The protocol, which was created by Alice and Andrea Zuccari in cooperation with physiotherapists and osteopaths, utilizes the bridge tool combined with specific breathing techniques designed to open and expand the chest and back.

The results are immediate and proven, as demonstrated by Andrea Zuccari himself who increased his lung capacity by two liters using this protocol alone and achieved world record and national record dives. Several other successful freedivers also showed incredible improvement in their total lung capacity as well as in their freediving achievements.

Each session, whether it is a group, small group or private lesson, will include:

  • Stretching exercises combined with breathing techniques to warm-up for the bridge
  • Explanation of the bridge (especially if it is the first lesson)
  • Stretching exercises with the bridge, and learning the proper techniques for going in and out of the stretches as well as closure positions.
  • Final relaxation
  • With more than one lesson you will learn different positions and variations.
