Don’t Hold Your Breath
The real title for the post should be ” Quick Tip: Just Breathe Part II”.
Yesterday, I posted a few guidelines on breathing while exercising. It can really get confusing when alternating between different types of workouts. Especially when switching from yoga to pilates.
Due to reader requests, here are a few additional guidelines on breathing while working out:
- Swimming: Inhale when your head is out of the water. Exhale when your head is in the water. The pattern would be stroke, stroke, breathe, stroke, stroke, breathe so that you are alternating sides when you are inhaling. (Note: All swimming info. is from the husband)
- Running: Inhale through both the mouth and nose. Exhale through the mouth.
Tomorrow, I’ll post about my boxing class at Tiger Schulmann. As always if you guys have any fitness questions, please feel free to send me an email or leave your question in the comment section. Thanks for reading!
