MAINTAIN – DON’T GAIN

MAINTAIN – DON’T GAIN

Join the MAINTAIN – DON’T GAIN challenge today! Begins November 5th!

Did you know that most Americans gain between 10-15 pounds between Thanksgiving and the New Year? While this amount doesn’t sound too threatening to some people, most individuals don’t lose the excess weight and the cumulative effects over several years can contribute to a substantial increase in body fat, weight, and inches. Not only does this impact one’s quality of life and self-esteem, it increases the risk for several chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

DON’T LET THIS BE YOU! Join Challenge Your Body's Maintain DON'T Gain Challenge!

The Importance of Proper Breathing While Exercising

The Importance of Proper Breathing While Exercising

BREATHING FROM YOUR DIAPHRAGM

As a boxer, it is crucial that I breath while under fire. Breath? you say. Of course you have to breath. Every body breathes. But did you know that breathing while exercising is different than just breathing as you do thousands of times a day all day long? What I'm talking about is breathing from your diaphragm, which is crucial while being active. And here's how:

 

Breath through your nose and out of your mouth. If you mouth breath, which is common while exercising, your are gulping air. This forces you to breath out of the top of your chest, which causes your chest to tighten. When your chest tightens, your muscles constrict, which then causes you to feel heavy in your legs, arms and chest, and can cause you to feel light-headed. This results in a feeling very similar to a panic attack.

 

Make a SSST noise. I used to tell my clients to make a SSSHHh sound when throwing hard power punches. But recently I read an article that said that the SSST sound forces you to breath from your diaphragm. AND IT WAS RIGHT! Give it a try......SEE! You can feel it. This technique does not just apply to boxers. Do it when performing any dynamic move such as ball slams or burpees, it even works well with crunches and push-ups. I promise you will feel the difference.

 

Practice and think about breathing.Sounds ridiculous right? But practice makes perfect. Since breathing during exercise requires a different tempo, we have to teach ourselves to do it, which requires us to have to think about something our body does involuntarily.
