Hi
Here is an article that addresses breathing during running and lifting. I would say breathing while lifting is the easiest to master.

Now the next one may seem a bit strange, but it works and you can incorporate it into your workouts to calm your breathing. There are several videos if you google it. It is what I learned doing Tai Chi (google "tai chi breathing"):

When I started running I had a horrible time with my breathing. I have a metronome that helped with cadence. I also think it helped to relax me. Seemed the more I focused on my inability to breathe properly, it would get worse. Focusing on the counting helped calm my breathing:) For me slowing down and breathing in through my nose and belly and out through my mouth helped.

Thank you, I can keep up I'm just not breathing right! I'll keep looking, maybe there is one out there someplace!

I had the same issue for a long time. As far as I know there isn't a breathing technique video. What finally helped me was slowing down and focusing on form rather than trying to keep up with the video. Once I got the hang of it I was able to speed up to keep time with the video.

I seem to be realizing that I breath the exact opposite of how your suppose to breath when your exercising (especially during strength training). I really try and listen to the cues given by whatever instructor on the DVD I'm using but it is hard for me! Even when I do a 60 minute cardio DVD I find myself yawning through the entire cool down and stretch. Does anyone know of an instructional DVD that "teaches" you how to breath properly? I know it's crazy but I just don't seem to "get it"!
