Improve your Physical Condition by Strengthening your Respiratory Muscles

Fortalecer músculos respiratorios

Fatigue as a side effect of physical training can happen to you whether you're a professional athlete or just someone who leads an active lifestyle. And it's not really a lack of motivation or a lack of the results you'd like to see issue, but rather, of running out of physical energy and thus not being able to catch your breath as you'd like.

You might've hear that lung condition is improved by cardio, and many people really swear by cardio as the ultimate way to accomplish it, but how true is this?

As good as cardio might be for our overall physical condition, the key to really improve it, is to strengthen your respiratory muscles.


Your Respiratory Muscles are the energy reserves you didn't know you had

Several scientific studies have shown that training the respiratory muscles undoubtedly provides better performance. More often than not, the feeling of heavy tiredness and being unable to catch your breath has to do with fatigue of the respiratory muscles. The "perceived fatigue" is like the feeling of being tired but very fleeting, for example when you're giving it your all while training and you're going to make it and suddenly you need breath and you stop to get more air? Well that's the spot.

Muscle breathing exercises can lead to sweating and cramps, and you may feel exhausted (meaning your muscles have been overloaded as needed for growth). The result: an almost immediate change in your endurance when you run, swim or simply recover between sets.

There are five extremely important factors that greatly affect our lifestyle, such as:

  • Keeping a healthy diet
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Drink no alcohol or do so in moderation
  • No Smoking
  • Always staying physically active

Especially not smoking is of utmost importance for a long and healthy life. So much so that in the first 1 to 10 years after quitting smoking, the risk of heart disease and lung cancer decreases, and at 15 years of age, the risk of each is close to that of a non-smoker.
