Chris Bumstead, better known as CBUM and four times winner of Mister Olympia, has become a fitness celebrity in the US. And it is that in addition to being a successful bodybuilder, he is an icon on social networks and a benchmark in Men’s Health when it comes to looking for classic hypertrophy workouts in the gym.
And in his last photo on Instagram, Baena dares with the classic abdominal vacuum that we see in the great monsters of this sport on the stage of Mister Olympia in the Open category. A demonstration that his abs are perfect, with a six pack that is proof of everything, and with a percentage of body fat below 8 percent. “Again, but better. Last day to sign up for my transformation challenge, the link is in my bio,” she comments to promote his workout business.
What is abdominal vacuum?
It involves sucking in the abdomen, emptying the lungs of air and maintaining apnea (inhaling and exhaling in very short periods) for a few seconds while we open the ribcage as much as possible. These movements allow stretching the diaphragm and tensing the abdomen, raising the pelvic viscera. A good exercise to do every morning before getting up and also relax your abdomen.

I played soccer, practiced karate, tennis and now I am passionate about paddle tennis and training in the gym. I firmly believe that leading a healthy life, eating well and exercising daily, is essential for both the body and our mental health. And I encourage you to combat stress with fitness training through exercise routines. One of my hobbies is buying food because I love eating, especially meat, but also fruit and healthy desserts. I am not missing my daily protein shake and to recommend, try the peanut butter with banana, this is one of many of the recommendations that you can find among the nutrition contents in which I write and deal with topics such as creatine, protein whey among others. Professionally, before joining the Hearst Magazines Healthy Unit, I spent almost 20 years at the magazines Teleindiscreta, TP and Supertele, from the same company, where I learned to be a journalist. Before I went through an economic consultant and a women’s website.
