Breathe Like This for Improved Performance and Quicker Recovery
Journalist James Nestor, author of the hugely-popular book Breath, has done extensive research on breathing, and he has some answers. Most importantly, should you be breathing through your nose? YES!
On this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, the award-winning writer goes deep with Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena and explains how breathing affects your performance. He also goes into great detail about the history and science of breathing, and offers some simple steps you can take to improve your breathing.
“If you stick with this, the benefits are profound," Nestor explains. "You will most likely gain performance, you'll be able to recover more quickly, and you'll be able to work out at the same level with the lower heart rate, so you'll be able to push it even more. [It's worked for] cyclists, rowers, ultra marathoners, and so many other people.”
