Improve Your Cycling Performance with Breathing Exercises

We’ve explored various breathing exercises to enhance performance in various sports and athletic activities. Similarly, there are several exercises for proper and effective breathing while cycling, but most cyclists are unaware of them. How you breathe during cycling can significantly impact your ride. Taking shallow breaths limits the amount of air you intake, leading to reduced oxygen supply to your muscles. This, in turn, elevates heart rate and blood pressure, subjecting your body to stress and a fight-or-flight response, while also affecting your emotional and mental balance.

Studies indicate that with a little daily practice, one can improve their breathing efficiency by 10%, resulting in a 5% performance enhancement. In this video, discover how to optimize your cycling potential and capacity through these breathing exercises, which enhance oxygen delivery to the muscles crucial for cycling.
