It’s a given that breathing is an essential part of the exercise process – when you exercise, your brain notes the increase of carbon-dioxide in your bloodstream, and automatically signals to the respiratory muscles to increase the flow and depth of oxygen. Insufficient oxygen flow, and your working muscles will start painfully contracting.
However, as alternate exercise regimes require differing levels of power and strength, breathing techniques also need modifying, to cope with different levels of oxygen demand. This infographic details the specific breathing techniques that ensure optimum oxygenation and, therefore, enhanced output for various exercise formats.
