Arnoldstang, after writing "blow good" I especially wrote "that's what I could come up with in English". I was hoping that what I meant was clear beyond what I wrote  :) Maybe not...?

Anyway, I have a suggestion for you that might make it clearer. Sorry in advnace if I don't use the most accurate terms since it's difficult in English. If something isn't clear let me know and I'll try to explain better (or maybe someone else can).

1. Take a (big) breath to your "stomach" (as opposed to your chest i.e. your stomach should move but your chest won't expand). Open your mouth wide and blow air out as fast as you can. Let your "stomach" just go naturally with it (it will come back in fast).

3. Take several more breaths, and each time blow it out of your mouth, the same as before (i.e. blow as fast/strong as you can), but each time close your mouth to increase the resistant, making less air come out. For example with a very small opening you just can't let the air out as fast as a big opening. Do you notice this?

4. Take another breath in the same way, and blow it out of your mouth, preferably with the mouth relatively open. Then WITHOUT changing anything in your jaw/lips/mouth/tongue/etc. take another breath. Keep your mouth the same still, and blow just as fast/strong as you did before, but also control your stomach muscles to keep your stomach out, and create resistance. The air will come out slower, in spite of your blowing the same. Do you manage to do this?

Good luck  :)
