Breathing tip from our reader Jose Alejandro

Got a helpful fact for you from our reader and supporter, Jose Alejandro Jr., He says, whenever you are working out or are out of breath it is important to breath with your stomach i.e diaphragm. Most people including myself usually just suck in air in a panic hoping to steady their heart rate. 
When you do that you are only using half of your lung capacity because you are actually squeezing your lungs restricting you air intake. Most times you are breathing with your chest minimizing effective air exchange. By using the diaphragm it allows the air to reach the bottom of you lungs. It allows you to recover quicker and keeps your limbs from going numb. 
But do it in a slow, steady manner or youll get light headed and pass out! Happy work out!
