What are the best breathing techniques for new runners?


Answer by  Lexie (115)

The best way to get your body used to running and controlling your breathe is to focus on breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth. Controlled breathing is the best way to avoid cramps.

When we are running, we can inspire with the nose two times, then aspirate with the mouth two times.This way let us jog is more relaxed.

A good breathing technique for new runners is to count paces. Start as your foot hits the ground and breath in for 4 paces. Then breath out for 4 paces.

A good starting technique is to exhale for every four strides taken, followed by an inhale for the next three strides. Breathing should be steady and uninterrupted. A beginning runner may find that maintaining a steady and measured breathing pattern, such as the one suggested above, will extend the time that he or she can maintain a good pace.

Align breathing with the steps taken. For a start, try to breath in along with two or three steps and then breath out with the next two or three steps.

The technique should focus on inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. This should be the most efficient method.


Answer by  Daigle83 (66)

From my experience on a slow run you want to inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. However, when you attempt a faster pace than usual you should inhale and exhale with both your nose and mouth.

Speak with your doctor to figure out what's best for you personally. While running, you should take steady, even breaths, trying to breath in deep through your nose on one step, and out through your mouth on the other step. The key is not in breathing deep, but in keeping a steady rhythm in time with your steps.
