The Breath Belt


Watch this quick overview video by Chris Duffin:



Developed by NFL Player, Jesse Ohliger, the BREATH BELT was created to solve a 10 year bout with chronic hip and low back pain. Several unsuccessful rehabilitations and surgery consultations later with the "best" NFL and NCAA clinicians, Jesse was driven to find what was holding back his progress. This lead the relentless mission to help himself and countless other NFL and NCAA players with similar issues. Drawing from numerous modalities including unconventional movement, yoga, classical pilates, anatomy and breath work, the best Injury Prevention tool for anyone with a pair of hips was conceived.

After a year of consultations with an array of Doctors, Rehabilitation Specialists and Strength and Conditioning coaches, it became clear that all modalities were missing something to connect breath mechanics to optimal hip function - as they are tied systems. It became evident that a tool was needed help alleviate fascial restriction against gravity of the prime lumbar stabilizers, the PSOAS and QL.

The BREATH BELT is currently helping thousands of clients as well as numerous college and professional sports teams in corrective movement, rehab and Strength & Conditioning. It is widely used to help any coach or client quickly learn and feel the link between diaphragmatic breath mechanics and hip mobility - as they are tied systems.


The Breath Belt is a diaphragmatic training tool that turns on the abdominals, psoas, QA, and lats. It is and excellent tool achieve early success in any hip hinge movement.

Not worth the price

Have been using one for 2-3 months now and after about 1 month it started to deform and the elastic started to stretch out. Stitching started to rip from Velcro area and anywhere with the fake leather material. Really like what the product does, quality of product is terrible for the price.

Must Have Tool For All Humans

If you're a person with a torso you should have a Breath Belt on daily. Working out or not the trunk stabilization cuing it gives and tissue lengthening quality it provides is second to none. The Breath Belt should be worn at least once a day. Period.


Before owning this belt, I would always have pain in my low back when deadlifting. Since owning this belt, it has almost gone away entirely. I am not sure what kind of magic it is doing but it works and works well. It works so well that I only need to wear this belt until I get close to 90% with my lifts. It almost feels better than wearing a traditional leather lifting belt. Bracing has gotten much better while wearing and without wearing. I also wear it while doing some mobility work and warmups. You really cant use it wrong and I cant recommend it enough to anyone with persistent musculature low back pain.

Great training tool

I use the breathing belt to train my brace endurance and use it to short cut my warm up drills. The biggest help is, it is powerful tool for those clients that don't like floor drills.This is huge for teaching them what a brace feels like and getting to the lifting faster.
