This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is crocodile breathing.
You should do this because- when we’re stressed or under pressure, we take short sharp breathes and this taxes our accessory breathing muscles. This exercise will help you focus on where you’re meant to breathe.
Makes your everyday life easier because– deep breathing helps relax your body and can wind you down if you’re wound up.
Form tips – I like to place my hands underneath my forehead for comfort but that’s up to you. Do 6 breathes like this daily and do this before every workout.
