Health Tip: Practice Rhythmic Breathing
(HealthDay News) -- Practicing rhythmic breathing can help you meet your exercise goals, especially if they involve running.
The American Lung Association recommends:
Using a five-step running pattern; inhale during three steps, exhale during two. For a faster pace, make it a three-step pattern, inhaling during two steps and exhaling during one.
Start out at a comfortable jogging pace, setting achievable goals.
Stay focused on your breathing and take breaks as necessary, before you begin running with more intensity
Always get your doctor's OK before starting any exercise program.
