Breathe easier during exercise, improve cardiovascular fitness, sleep better, reduce stress, increased energy and concentration
One of the most fundamental aspects of health and fitness is often overlooked. When was the last time you, or a health professional, checked out your breathing? We’re often told to take big breaths or deep breaths but have you considered if there is a difference?
Should you be breathing through the mouth or nose, or both? Just as you can over-eat and drink too much have you considered that you can breathe too much? Chronic over-breathing is just one of the many breathing pattern disorders that can have a profound effect on your exercise programme as well as your everyday life.
The Oxygen Advantage Breathing® technique, backed by the latest scientific research, will give you an understanding of how oxygen is released throughout the body and how to improve everyday breathing habits so that body becomes more efficient.
The technique was developed international best-selling author and Master Instructor, Patrick McKeown. Over the last 15 years, he has trained more than 7,000 people around the world to safely challenge their bodies and produce positive changes.
The benefits of The Oxygen Advantage Programme
A switch to nasal breathing in everyday life and for up to 70% of your training programme will calm breathing volume towards normal levels and improve every facet of your health. Stress levels will decrease substantially and you’ll feel like an entirely different person. Increasing the amount of oxygen that can be delivered to your working muscles and heart during exercise will allow you to become healthier, faster, fitter and stronger.
The Oxygen Advantage Programme teaches you to measure and reduce breathlessness during physical exercise and can provide the same benefits as high altitude, and high-intensity interval training. By following this programme you will
- Become aware of any breathing pattern disorders
- Learn to nose breathe in everyday life to improve oxygen uptake
- Learn to nose breathe during exercise to improve overall performance
- Improve your tolerance to reduced oxygen and increased carbon dioxide
- Improve concentration, focus and quality of sleep
- Delay the onset of fatigue and lactic acid
- Improve aerobic performance
- Improve running economy
- Improve VO2 max (maximal oxygen uptake)
- Improve delivery of oxygen to organs and working muscles
- Reduce breathlessness during physical exercise
- Help prevent exercise-induced asthma
- Help maintain fitness during rest or injury
- Help maintain focus and concentration during competition
