Do you tend to take shallow breaths when you feel tired? Most people breathe through the chest, which is not the best way to maximize their oxygen intake.
Wondering how to breathe while running? Well, inhale and exhale through both your nose and mouth can be the best solution for you.
Inhaling and exhaling only through the mouth can cause the hyperventilating effect, whereas inhaling and exhaling through your nose will not provide you with enough oxygen while running. The best way to breathe while running is to inhale and exhale using a combined nose and mouth.
Breathing through your mouth and nose will keep your breathing steady and use your diaphragm for maximum oxygen intake. Also, it allows you to quickly remove carbon dioxide.
Practice breathing through your nose and mouth throughout the day. This may be hard because we are designed to inhale and exhale only through the nose. However, once you can do this, you will breathe better while running.
