It is correct to inhale through the nose, exhale through the mouth, isn’t it? That's right, but not always. Breathing plays an important role in sports, since if you breathe incorrectly, you lose oxygen, which means strength.

Proper breathing during fitness exercises will greatly increase the effectiveness of training, because in this case the muscles will be better restored, you will become less tired and you will be able to reach the required result faster. Most people breathe correctly only during sleep.

They are in the state of complete relaxation, when the breath is controlled unconsciously. During the waking period, breathing is not so correct and is sometimes delayed, which can cause serious disturbances in such important organs as the heart and the brain.

While walking, running, cycling, swimming, when the body's need for oxygen increases several times, proper breathing is especially important. When running, first of all, you need to coordinate the rhythm and the frequency of breathing with the movements of the body. Disorderly, with pauses or, on the contrary, too frequent breathing disturbs the rhythm of running, makes coordination difficult and does not provide sufficient ventilation of the lungs.
