An Exercise in Proper Breathing

Take a Good Breather


    I can't overstate how relaxing this exercise is. I try to do it every day now, and it helps me focus better than anything else. Thiago | - 1/20/2014 2:57:10 PM
  • Great article. I try to do alot of breathing when I exercise. I try to warm up. - 10/6/2013 7:17:32 PM
    this co insides similarly to the buteyko breathing method in that you should only breath through your nose, very true i dont know about deep beaths im pretty sure your lungs will only absorb a small amount of that oxygen - 7/16/2013 3:11:37 AM
    I like this article! I definitely will be trying it. Like someone else said before it should have been in audio but nevertheless with practice I will be able to do the different steps automatically. Thanks! - 4/25/2013 3:27:37 PM
  • Nice article! And thanks to those who gave their own tips in the comments! - 4/24/2013 2:39:23 PM
  • Good article. It may be basic but sometimes we just need a reminder. Think I'll be adding to my goals to consciously perform a few times a week. Thanks! - 11/14/2012 11:32:06 AM
  • This is basically the same thing as ZEN breathing which every karateka is taught in their first few months. - 12/23/2011 11:53:07 PM
  • We shouldn't need this reminder, but unfortunately, we do.

    I created my own audio file to help guide me through this process. I recorded myself using a tape recorder and giving instructions with the time intervals suggested. It helps so you don't have to try to worry about whether or not you're getting the correct time with each step. Then, I dimmed the lights and listened to the instructions. It made a big difference! - 6/30/2011 10:25:14 PM
  • It would be great to have an audio file to guide us through this. Keeping track of time without a clock is hard for me. :) - 6/28/2011 9:31:12 AM

    Thanks, Mike. I was looking for a stress-buster technique that I could use in my first week of the Stress Buster Challenge - now I've found it! - 4/12/2011 8:57:38 PM
