swimming the breast stroke is good for the lungs and not to stressful.to my surprise my sons physio therapist(he is doing breathing therapy with her)said trampolining is good for asthma.you live and learn.hope this helps.my sons lung specialist said he couldn´t do football when we asked but she suggested judo instead.he has now been doing judo for nearly two years and in that time has only needed his spray twice in training.
Just wanted to introduce myself! I'm Marissa, 25 year old grad student in Virginia! I've had asthma since I was little but it's progressively gotten worse. I'm hoping this group will help me find some solutions to working out instead of continuing to use it as an excuse for myself. It has always been mild, sometimes moderate in the spring. Last March it became severe though and I ended up in the hospital for a few days. It was mild again all summer and about 2 weeks ago I went into respiratory distress in late stage status asthmaticus and just finally got back out of the hospital yesterday. A lot of it is environmental but obviously exercise isn't the easiest thing to do as you all know. Just because my asthma is getting more severe I can't not work out. I just have to find new solutions and strategies so I'm open to any ideas people have!
