Which method do you use?
What do you find more effective?
So, depending on air temperature i either go like the swimming (intake from the mouth, exhale via nose) type breathing rhythm or go jogged style breathing (intake from the nose, exhale via the mouth), and switch to normal breathing when going down hill on a looooong stretch of road. (inhale & exhale via nose)
but i recall some breathing method are better than others, however i kinda forgot which one was more adequate for biking, specially when you are hammering it hard to maintain 60 Km/h biggrin.gif
i find it i can only maintain that speed on a flat for about 500m to barely 1 km, after that i'm all out of air, because i'm not breathing properly.
So i'm trying to figure out which is the best method to maintain a good air flow to maintain fast speed for longer period of time.
i searched the forum already, there has been several topics about breathing, but all the answers has been rather general, and basically it was like "try this" "try that" or simply re-echo what is common knowledge about inhaling and long exhaling, rhythm, etc.
I do sort of practise that as well, i swim too, but on the bike, it doesn't seems to work, at least not for the type of speed i'd like to maintain
Anyways, lets hear from your experience, i'm specially interested on feedbacks from others that usually likes to maintain high speed.
*note: when i say exhaling in the polls it actually meant long exhales
