A few weeks ago, I experienced a personal revelation.
A revelation that has totally changed my workouts and the way I feel when I'm exercising.
And it all comes down to breathing.
Do you know how to breathe the right way when you're working out? It may seem trivial, but learned how to breathe properly (and the correct way to do this is going to surprise) has literally changed my entire exercise experience.
Let's delve in – and learn why I call this new breathing concept the zen of “The Zone”…
Meet Dr. John Douillard.
Dr. John Douillard, DC has written and produced numerous health and fitness books, CDs, and DVDs. He has been teaching and lecturing internationally for 25 years and publishes a free wellness video-newsletter filled with the latest studies and research. He was the Director of Player Development for the New Jersey Nets in the NBA and currently directs the LifeSpa- Ayurvedic Retreat Center in Boulder, CO, where he lives with his wife and six children.
During our interview, I ask John:
From a scientific standpoint, what is “The Zone”?
How can you reach the Zone when training and racing?
How should you breathe when training or resting?
What are the best breathing techniques or exercises for learning to breathe properly, while resting, running, cycling, etc?
Where does your concept of Ayurvedic typing play into this?
Resources John recommends in this interview include:
