After discussing the Valsalva Maneuver last week, you may be wondering, “Nicole, what other breathing techniques are available for sports aside from heavy lifting?”

Well, in this episode we will be breaking down four more breathing techniques for various physical activities.  But first, we will review your foundation for breathing: normal diaphragm breathing. From there we will differentiate between the other techniques and what they are best suited for.

In this episode we will discuss:

  • Biomechanical breathing commonly used for strength training
  • Anatomical breathing most often used to relax into movement.  This is great for mobility exercises and running.
  • System breathing most often seen used by those participating in crossfit
  • Box breathing, or tactical breathing, which is best for meditation and relaxation

Don’t forget to check out the YouTube channel for videos demonstrating each of the above-mentioned techniques.
