With resistance breathing training, you are training your breathing muscles. Just like any other muscles, training increase their strength, endurance, and performance.
By strength training your respiratory muscles you lift the level of when you are feeling out of breath.
When you improve your VO2 max levels (the stage at which you feel out of breath) you can increase your training intensity. Your increased VO2 max means you can exercise more intensively without straining your body more. This is visible in longer distance or faster time. In other words, your training should give you more satisfying results!
When we are scared we start to breath short breaths at a hard pace. Our bodies' so called sympathetic nervous system, our “alert mode" is activated. When we are in for a challenge like running away from a threat, running for that goal medal, or in for a difficult task, the nervous system is on high alert mode to be able to quickly survive the current situation.
However when we are at home, feeling safe and warm, with food in our tummy and the company of our loved ones, maybe even in the arms of them and in skin-to-skin contact, our "relax mode" (parasympathetic nervous system) is activated. Our breaths are deeper and slower, telling our bodies that it is time to collect and increase our energy reserves for future ”alert" situations. This mode is essential for physical and mental recovery.
Our survival mechanisms took millions of years to develop. The natural environment for which we were designed is no longer reality. However the mechanisms of our steering system hasn’t changed.
With all screens, notifications, and 24/7 availability many of us struggle with the impossibility of lowering our stress levels. Most of us are stuck in the "alert mode" and unable to automatically activate the "relax mode" enough.
That’s why breathing exercises have become a central element of well-being. Since we are able to control our breathing, we can activate the "relax mode" consciously. And that is why many are considering breathing to be a central element of self-care and increasing ones well-being.
