Remember To Breathe

This Sparked Me!

I tend to tense up when I exercise, a new arena for me, and either don't breathe properly or just don't breathe. To be sure that I do at least the latter, I either count reps or narrate my movements aloud. If you're talking, you're breathing. They go together like a horse and carriage.

    I find that when I first start a new exercise I have to be conscious of doing the correct breathing technique otherwise I too tend to hold my breath.
