Better Breathing for Athletes

Perfect Breathing Sports Performance Spring has sprung! Ready to get out there and grab some? For many people (like me), we naturally become more active as the weather warms up. I’m just not as excited about cycling, for instance, when I have to wear a survival suit!

This is a good time (when is it not?) to revisit your breathing. There are few other variables that can have so much impact on performance. Breathing is the common denominator and impacts us on every level: emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and of course, physically.

Ridding yourself of performance-constricting habits can open up access to new levels of athletic achievement. For a quick primer, check out this article in Athletics Weekly. For more insight into performance breathing, check out this video.

We’ll be back with more ideas to help you improve your cycling, swimming, running, climbing, and everything else that you do!
