Iron Thread Is A Powerful System For Achieving Health And Longevity

By Alexander Popov

Iron Thread is a complex of exercises developed by Shaolin Temple monks during centuries. Practicing Iron Thread exercises Shaolin Temple monks achieved amazing results in Kung Fu and became invincible fighters.

However, besides the fighting aspect, Iron Thread is a powerful health improvement method. With the help of isometric exercises and breathing techniques, Iron Thread fills all internal body organs with Qi energy and increases internal body reserve. As a result, organism rejuvenates and keeps its strength and power even to deep old age.

The basis of Iron Thread consists of 12 "Arms-bridges": Tan (hardness), Zhou (flexibility), Bi (compulsion), Chzhi (straightness), Fen (division), Din (fixation), Tsun (instant), Ti (raise), Lju (abandonment), Jun (movement), Chzhi (suppression), Din (correction).

Besides, you should use the contrary factors. Using Qi, the life-giving spirit power, you increase physical forces. Pay attention to the waist and kidney defense. Breathe loudly so that your breath got particular features like for instance joy, anger, grief and gaiety. This is quite that what differs this single combat style from others.

I consider that the most complicated thing in Tiet Sin Qigong mastering is the respiration itself and regulation of Qi as well as sound utterance and internal power application. If the above-mentioned items are performed badly, you will get no use or can even harm yourself.

Practicing Iron Thread, it is necessary to remember always one important rule to avoid health damage. It is strongly prohibited to do these exercises with breathing stop. In normality, Q energy circulates together with blood through whole organism and supports regular function of all internal organs.

When you perform force exercise with maximum effort, a powerful surge of Qi occurs. With breathing stop, Qi energy also stops circulation and accumulates in certain vital organs, which causes their damage.

That is why fatal cases often occure with weight-lifting sportsmen. Blood excess (and Qi excess too) rises to brain and causes cerebral hemorrhage. The heart and other organs can be damaged as well.

Therefore, it is essential to be very careful practicing Iron Thread exercises and not to do them as isometric, i.e. with breathing stop. In spite of the fact that the exercises are performed with isometric exertion, the hands go forward slowly and simultaneously with exhalation.

In the interval between exhalation, the short limited inhalation takes place. As a result of such breathing, Qi (and blood as well) circulates freely throughout the whole body without any side effects.

On the contrary, Iron Thread is very useful for those with weak health or suffered serious illness. Hung Gar Kung Fu history mentions about quite a number cases when weak health people started practise Iron Thread and not only recovered the health, but, in addition, became famous Kung Fu masters and lived until deep old age.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
