How do you breathe after VO2max is reached?
During yesterday's ride, as I was doing zone 5 intervals, I began thinking about my breathing technique. Before VO2max, breathing is pretty much self regulated, I don't think much about it. However, after VO2max, I feel I need a technique to maximize O2 intake.
I experimented with short quick exhales, but found that I quickly reverted to long deep breaths, followed by gasping. I couldn't figure out what felt right.
So...I was wondering if there is some technique that can be considered more effective than others.
