Re: Training the Body. Part 2: Exercesis

Kind of, but I wouldn't focus on it. Reason being you'll eventually want to focus on a "up" pressure as well. (Which starts to lead into basic compression, expansion, and is beyond the scope of the article) Don't overdo the tension, try and keep it as "relaxed" as possible.
Basically, don't turn it into 緊張感 (kinchou kan) as opposed to "張り"(hari).
