Just did a run this morning and made a point of breathing in deep and controlling it, damn does it make a diffrence. It sounds obvious but make sure your doing that lads and you will no doubt knock time of your runs.

Of course! Beathing!! Usually I only manage 113yards before I faint, but since i've been using the technique of 'breathing', I've been going much further.

I apologise for how unnecessary this mockery was. Sadly, I couldn't resist.

Only the other day i had to remind a lad to breath when he was doing pullups and pressups, he found by breathing correctly he could do more. (Obviously the oxygen is getting to his muscles) but thats just one example of someone not controlling there breathing.

Sorry to hear about you fainting, if only i had posted this a few days ago!:doh:

Short, sharp breaths. Exhale as you exert and push yourself up, inhale as you lower yourself. It's important to do it that way round, it encourages oxygen to the muscles at the right time.

i'm really rubbish when it comes to breathing, don't seem to know how to breathe correctly for running, pull ups or sit ups.

Breathing properly is SO important. As a rule of thumb, exhale as you exert. ie, pushing up on a press-up, or pulling up on a pull-up. Inhale on the negative, ie, as you go back on a sit-up or down on a press up or pull up. Short, sharp breathing is key and can put 10% on your scores if done properly.
