Everyone breathes. But do we breathe ‘correctly’?
Today on the show, I chat with Oxygen Advantage Master Instructor and Breathwork coach, David Jackson, better known as Jacko, and we chat about all things, breathing. Now I know what you're thinking, what is there possibly to know about the thing that we do every second of every day of our lives?
Well, turns out there's a whole lot that you need to know. And actually, we're probably not doing it all that great. Could we be doing it better? Yes, of course, could we use it to our advantage so that we can improve our performance? Absolutely. And that's what we chat about today.
Jacko dives deep into the biochemistry and biomechanics around breathing, the importance of carbon dioxide and why we need it, he breaks down the BOLT score, what it is, why you need to know it, and how you can use it to measure your breathing progress and tolerance to carbon dioxide, AND ultimately, how that will improve your performance.
When we breathe effectively, the flow-on effect is that of improved focus, cognitive function, better sleep, better stress management, and the list goes on.
Regardless if you're an athlete of any level or not, breathing is a part of life and the better we can do that, the better quality of life that we will have.
So take a deep breath (through the nose;) and listen to Jacko’s fantastic insight and advice on breathing for performance.
