Master Lu's Five Elements of Breathing
Here is the description from the website:
Medical studies show that we only use one-sixth of our lung capacity. Professional athletes may use more, but not significantly. Most doctors believe that if we could use just one-third of our lung capacity, then we will not incur internal health problems. Using beyond one-third of our lungs is believed to REVERSE long-term internal health problems.
Developing The Five Elements Breathing Method
The Five Elements Breathing Method has five phases. The first phase invites the maximum amount of oxygen into your lungs. As we know, our two lungs branch out to thinner and thinner tubes until it reaches tiny air sacs called the alveoli. In most of us, the air only reaches a fraction of the alveoli, therefore only utilizing a fraction of them. By performing the first phase to cause a deeper breath and lower your diaphram, you are slowly activating more of these unused air sacs.
Once we get more oxygen to these air sacs, the second movement will help will direct the benefits toward your liver. How is this possible, you say? Well, it is believed that each major organ correlates to a limb or body part, and Master Lu has figured out the precise connections to create these movements. For example, people with weak kidneys likely have trouble walking. Or weak lungs typically results in physically weak upper body strength.
Master Lu's method uses precise movements to create an unheard of reverse stimulation. Which, the only one most are accustomed to is the cardio workout, by moving very fast to make the heart beat faster. But we often fail to remember that a faster beating heart needs more oxygen to supply the faster flow of blood. Master Lu's method is simply following the order of how the body actually works.
The third movement will stimulate your kidneys. The fourth, your heart, and lastly your spleen.

My Review of Five Elements of Breathing:
I absolutely love this exercise. It takes a few days to learn it and do it correctly, and you'll want to do it at your own pace, not the videos, but I notice a huge increase of energy and my breathing and oxygen intake has been steadily improving. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in yoga, meditation (where breathe is essential) or just being as healthy as you can.
Lift Up Series #2
Master Lu's I-Jing Superior Joints
Here is the description from the website:
Once you have experienced the benefits of The Five Elements Breathing Method - you are ready for the next step! As health conscious individuals, we do cardio, we stretch, we lift weights, swim, play soccer, tennis, football. We do all we can to stimulate and grow our muscles. BUT, when do we ever work out or joints?
Master Lu's Superior Joints is designed for just that! This is the most intense workout possible to strengthen your joints more effectively than any form of martial arts. Yet, you won't have to break a sweat.
BACKGROUND Superior Joints is based on Master Lu's studies of one of the most powerful warrior gods in Chinese Mythology. It was an exercise that contributed to his fundamental martial arts ability. Although the original method required training from sunrise to sunset - Master Lu was able to refine this exercise to make it easy for most of us non-martial artists! Now even the most uncoordinated person can experience the benefits of martial arts without having to give up their profession. Past students have actually claimed to experience the unique benefits of this exercise in less than 3 days!
This is DVD quality. I ripped this one.
My Review of I-Jing Superior Joints:
When I first watched this, it looked easy and a little bit lame compared to Five Elements of Breathing. That was my first impression. However, after doing it just the first time.... wow! It is much, much more difficult than it appears if you simply watch it. It gives you a great workout, and I also notice an increase in energy as well. I would recommend anyone try this at least once before dismissing it. Though I have only been doing it for a short time, so I cannot tell you the long-term benefits for my joints, I trust Master Lu, and this is really a great workout for those who enjoy yoga or chi kung.
Each DVD costs $58... so be thankful they have been uploaded and PLEASE SEED so everyone can enjoy!
