Now, try to touch your chin to the chest (Jalandhar Bandha or Throat lock), lift upwards the muscles of diaphragm (Uddiyan Bandha or Abdominal lock) and also lift the muscles of groin area (Mulabandha or Root lock). These three Bandha all together called ‘Tribandha’ or ‘Mahabandha’.
Patients of Heart, Blood Pressure and Cervical Colitis should not over stretch.
Staying in this state for at least 10-15 seconds or as per your body stamina, release all Bandha one by one and breath in slowly.Repeat this process 1-3 times per day initially.

Effects of Bahya Pranayama in the body (Scientific Explanation)
When a pressure exerted on a body then the force on different parts acts normally. If the duration of time increased then body starts expanding. The body must be an elastic one in which the body regains its original position after withdrawing the force.
During ‘Bahya Pranayma’ the elastic nature of different organs related to the cavity are expanded and contracted by external pressure. So the elastic nature of the parts of the body will be activated.
Again the same pressure factor imparts force on the digestive system so that the unwanted air in stomach completely move downwards.
