Breathwork is so much more than inhaling and exhaling. It provides oxygen to muscles to aid in recovery, creates mental clarity to make good decisions, calms the nervous system, and helps control response to stress.
As athletes, practicing breathwork can take your game to the next level. Here’s a short video on how to do Triangle Breathing to help get you started! (Free through September only)
Most people have some sort of dysfunctional breathing pattern that they are unaware of. It can destabilize your trunk, cause loss in mobility, lower movement efficiency, and reduce force potential.
Functional breathing means breathing appropriately for your current state of metabolic demand. But, what does that mean exactly?
Your metabolic demand depends on the intensity of your training. During a warm-up there is a low state of metabolic demand and you might not even think about the breath. But mid-game, such as after a full 3 minute rally, there is a really high state of metabolic demand. As the metabolic state changes, so should the breathing pattern.
Just like you practice your sport each week to perform during a game, you should also practice breathwork.
A breathwork practice will teach you to warm up your respiratory muscles, control your breath, increase your tolerance to CO2, respond better to stress, and increase mental clarity.
When you breathe functionally, the breath becomes a powerful tool to reset the body and mind, especially when you need it most.
Are you ready to start breathing more functionally? We’ve created a short Triangle Breathing practice to help get you started! (FREE through September only!)
