You don’t get more oxygen by breathing through your mouth. You will be off setting to much CO2 through mouth breathing hence gasping for air as you ramp intensity. You need CO2, it is what regulates your breathing rate and heart rate. Just listen to that interview it will possibly answer all your questions. Joe Rogan has a longer podcast with James Nestor as well.This doesn't really answer my question aside from the mouthbreather urban dictionary definition. I've heard you get more oxygen through mouthbreathing but I've also heard the same for nose breathing.
You never know next time you realise you are heading for his title! Anyway, one can always try and make adjustments in their form to see if it improves. We should never be content.I'm a honking mouthbreather and a rapid runner are you telling me all I have to do to be on par with mo farah is breathe out my nose? Roger... watch this space
I've always been a good runner and that continued to after having surgery around my guy and with a nose injury that never properly healed. I say that because when I exercise I breathe through my mouth becuse I need to yet I can gain above average results, demonstrating it's possible to be a great runner whilst using your mouth.Apparently nose breathing is better than mouth breathing, I'm curious if anyone knows anything about this?
Ideally through the nose or pursed lips to main a low breathing rate rather than hyperventilating and exhaling out too much CO2. He was also recommending doing hypoxic runs in a safe environment (in case you over do it and black out). An another coach who trains people for BUD/S was saying doing hypoxic swims and then go for a run. Has anyone ever tried that?Do you know what these blokes say about breathing out?
Don’t get me wrong I love Ross Edgley as well as Nick Bare, both doing concurrent training but as discussed before by people in the known neither of them is clean. That doesn’t take away from their achievements just a thing to consider. More so, yes you can do concurrent training but you won’t get optimal results for either. So if you are someone who is better at one or the other system you should focus on your weakness first until you get to a level where you can maintain both but again won’t be maintaining either at an optimised level. Having said I will be doing concurrent training to maintain my calisthenics reps while I am trying to decrease my 1.5 miles time. One thing that can help concurrent training is to have at least 7-8 hours between the anaerobic/aerobic part. Ideally, separate days but then your work capacity would suffer so comprises have to be made.Many thanks for the extra comment further clarification... I purposely presented a simplified "back pocket" version that can be utilised as a general rule of thumb.
An especially interesting area is the idea that you cannot have excellent endurance and strength / power at the same time or that one will necessarily come at the expense of the other- whilst this might be true at the very very highest ends, it is annoying to have many high performance players (e.g. sharp end military personnel) worry about this and subsequently train in a way may not be optimal. Ross Edgely has done alot on this with his swimming around Great Britain (a laughable, absurd and bonkers diea - but he did it and one of the most incredible feats of human endurance I have heard of), yet Ross is a beast of an all round athlete - performing highly in multiple physical domains. He has superhuman endurance, power and strength. He has demonstrated that our ability to train all systems to a relatively high level is absolutely possible and makes a fantastic example of whats possible to achieve.
