Athletic performance

A primary goal of every athlete is to achieve optimal potential. The Buteyko Breathing Method has been shown to improve athletic performance by increasing the efficiency of respiration and therefore improving the supply of oxygen to tissues and vital organs during exercise.
  • —Normal levels of carbon dioxide are restored and maintained for longer periods while exercising
  • —Blood vessels and bronchioles remain dilated
  • Oxygen release from the hemoglobin increases and there is less lactic acid build up
  • —Athletes do not tire as quickly, have less breathing problems and the heart is not put under so much strain
  • Athletes are able to perform aerobic type activity for a longer period with faster recovery time
This enables them to increase the intensity of their training programs with the result being a better sport performance
When the body is functioning within its physiologically normal parameters it can work at its optimum.
