Since restarting structured training (I am still new at it), I have been trying to do the from belly breaths that coach Chad encourages. This has led me to focus on an issue I first visited the Doctor for when I was 10 years old.
Most of my breaths can only be taken to about 90% of capacity. It’s hard to describe. Every so often (maybe 1 in 20), I am able to take a truly full deep breath and it always feels amazing. Is this normal?
I visited the Dr about this issue as a kid, but don’t recall the outcome. I vaguely remember something about an inhaler (which I never used), but honestly could be totally imagining this part. I am considering making another appointment but wondering if I am just overthinking things. I mean, I can breathe just fine - usually struggle in the hard workouts due to muscle fatigue/soreness rather than from breathing frantically.
Does every breath where you take the effort to make a deep one successful?
