Breathing exercises have for ages been used to enhance relaxation. Traditional medicinal practices regarded breathing exercises as a physical technique of fighting or reducing both anxiety and stress accumulation. This ancient perception has in this age been reinvented and introduced in body building as a crucial component and enhancement technique to muscle generation, development and toning.
Contemporary research has established that prior to doing intense body building exercises, simple but regular breathing exercise greatly helps to optimize body building results. Champion body builders now ensure that their workouts consist of exercises that help them to monitor their regular breathing rhythm, quality and even intensity. Worm up exercises mainly consist of regulated breathing as a prelude to the core exercises. To do this a body builder should breathe in and then out at normally speed and intensity. This helps the body builder in observing the bodily activities like the gradual rising and consequent falling of the belly lining and or upper chest covering. In this exercises, restricted breathing consequent from tight clothing, poor posture and or imbalanced emotions is seriously discouraged. Breathing rate and intensity must always be regular and steady as determined by a relatively average rate of at least 10 times and at most 16 times every single minute.
When the body builder consciously monitors the breathing rhythm, quality and intensity to a regular and steady pattern, he or she should move on to the next stage of breathing exercises. He or she should lie comfortably, sit and then stand for brief moments while still maintaining the back bone column straight but relaxed. A controlled breathing style must always incorporate slow, continuous and deep intakes of air until the lungs expand fully. Persistent watch of the navel region during its rise or thrust outwards must be maintained and enhanced in a bid to expand the air cavity inside as far out and up as realistically possibly. A body builder must exhale gradually sinking the navel region farthest down towards the back bone column to the back. Exhalation should always empty out completely the lung cavity followed by gradually relaxation before the next air bout is drawn in. all breathing exercises should be slow and meticulously controlled as one breath is taken and then released, again and again. Breathing too fast causes hyperventilation.
All breathing exercises before or during body building workouts must be repeated consistently all through the body building programme. A good program is powered by adequate relaxation of the muscle system and aerated combustion processes. That is why poor breathing patterns hinders results in body building and the converse holds true. It’s very advisable and has proved as beneficial, to always do breathing and other body building exercises in a place with an adequate supply of fresh air, for this offers plenty of the much needed oxygen as serious combustion is initiated by the body builder’s workout. Getting onto actual workout does not mean carelessness with breathing tempo. Lifting heavy weights especially requires that the body builder continually inhales through his or her nose to fully load the lungs. The belly should move out as the lungs expand bottom up. Although air is inhaled via the nose, exhaling should be oral so as to achieve a thorough depletion of the lungs.
Combustion of fats and energy synthesis is improved by adequate breathing exercises before and during body building workouts. Immense benefits accrue from correct breathing patterns during body building not in only energising muscles but also in keeping them agile.
