It’s so important to breathe properly. More and more I am seeing people that do not breathe properly and the dramatic effect it has on their performance.
Like with any physical endeavor, proper mechanics are essential to good performance. Likewise, mobility of the muscles and joints involved in respiration is crucial to success.
Faulty breathing patterns and habits create a lot of physical problems for many of our athletes. Therefore, I think the next step is to schedule a breathing workshop. Maybe 2 or 3 hours spend on just learning how to breathe and applying that to some constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity.
