Breathing by mouth/nose when running?
does it make any difference if u breathe by your mouth or nose when u are running long distances? will it make it less tiring or worse if u breathe by your nose/mouth?
Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. This causes your body to get the most from the oxygen you are inhaling through a smaller opening (Causing your lungs to expand at a slower rate, and since you're breathing deeper, you're causing them to stretch which will lead to greater lung capacity), and exhaling through your mouth will get rid of the most carbon dioxcide possible without expelling any vital oxygen.
When you stop running/jogging/whatever, do NOT immediately stop. Your blood is still surging. You can cause serious damage to your knees over a short time if you just stop moving immediately.
What you need to do is raise your arms over your head, cross them, and grab each elbow (Or as far as you can reach) with the opposite hand. Meaning, you cross your arms so your left hand is touching on or near your right elbow, and your right is touching on or near your left elbow.
You need to walk. It doesn't matter how fast or slow, a casual walking pace is perfect. Do this, taking long, deep breaths through your nose, holding it for a second or two, and slowly exhaling through your mouth. Do this until your heart rate slows back down to near normal.
When this is done, you can stop walking and take a break.
So concentrate on emptying your lungs everytime that you exhale and keep the breaths steady. You should be able to go further and finish stronger this way.
50% of the oxygen that enters the body is absorbed for the vital organs i.e. heart, lungs, kidneys, etc.
30% of the oxygen is used for the brain.
20% of the oxygen is used for non vitals i.e. arms and legs.
The more oxygen your body is able to consume the better your body will be able to put it to better use. You take in more oxygen through the mouth than the nose.
So in effect, if you breathe through your nose you will tire out more quickly then if you breathe through your mouth.
You won't get dry mouth as quick either if you start out breathing through your nose. Some of my friends say they can't do this, I can, but I would recommend breathing through your mouth and nose at the same time. You can breath a lot faster like that.
You should try that stuff out and see if it works for you.
i have been using this method on myself- Try this - focal on your the breathing, count no of cycle eg 1 ~ 10 cycle and repeat again, keep your mind off that you are running (keeping your mind off running does not mean not looking where you are going).. it is a way to hipmotizing yourself so you can cover the most distance without even knowing.. try and let me know the results...
The right way you should breathe with your nose and go out the air by your mouth!
If you breathe with your nose and go out the air with you nose too, some people will get the light head!
If you breath with you mouth and go out the air with you mouth too , some people will hurt and the side of the stomach! And also you will breathe so much dirt into your body!
And it also depend on which way is better for you, which will make you run faster!
For my self, I use to brethe with my nose and go out the air with my nose, sometimes I get like head then I will brethe with nose and go out air with my mouth. If I run really fast speed, I will " TRY" to breath with nose and go out air with mouth, but because running a fast speed is really hard, so I mostly breathe with my mouth and go out air with my mouth!
so now you know , see which way is the best for you!
