Within the variables that we need to keep in mind when swimming, breathing It is something what we must repair, and is that depending on how launch it it we aguantaremos more or less. It is important that we acquire a habit and control throughout the respiratory process, since we are developing ourselves in a medium that is not ours.
Respiration is composed of inhalation and exhalation the air. Normally we inhale through the nose and we exhale through your mouth, but when it comes to swim this varies a bit. Inhalation should be done through the mouth, and so we have to remove the head from time to time in order to get air. It is important to perform by mouth to prevent clog the respiratory ducts, because it almost always seems to get some water, which if it comes through the nose will be annoying and can cause a major upset affecting performance.
The exhalation It is usually slower than inhalation. Carried out in the water and it can be done through the nose or mouth, Although in the majority of cases is made by mouth and is expelling the air gradually. Through the nose is driven out more quickly and is recommended in certain moments of immersion in which we want to remove the air and water that we have been able to swallow.
Exhalation must be complete to get more air when we inhalemos. In addition, it is important that we expel air through the nose when we dive us to prevent water entering the respiratory holes hindering the performance of the exercise. Despite sound simple, it is important that we coordinate these movements before performing an exhaustive exercise.
