How Can Rhythmic Breathing Help You Perform Exercises

Rhythmic breathing is essential when performing exercises. This is necessary for everyone but those who just started exercising should be more mindful about rhythmic breathing.

When you perform any physical activity, your heart pumps blood to your active muscles and through breathing, your body system functions accordingly. Without proper knowledge about breathing techniques, it will be hard for you to carry out your chosen workout routine and you are not likely to succeed in your fitness endeavours. You must also take note that incorrect breathing practices while exercising can cause reduced motor output that can lead to muscle damage and more serious injuries.

Rhythmic Breathing Tips

Rhythmic breathing can be achieved through a steady breathing pattern.  Be mindful of inhalation, retention, and exhalation ratio. The experts in rhythmic breathing suggest the ratio of inhalation, retention, exhalation, and retention to 2:1:2:1. The proper way to perform rhythmic breathing varies from person to person. What's important is for you try to improve your breathing depth and you develop awareness on your breathing's tempo.

While exercising, breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth. By doing so, you are expelling carbon dioxide from your body. This promotes relaxation and makes it easier to concentrate. This maximizes the delivery of oxygen to your blood stream.

There are different breathing techniques for every type of sport, such as running, cycling, swimming, and yoga. It is important to know the kind of rhythmic breathing that suits your activity. Consult with your training instructor or healthcare provider for suggestions.
