Today I am honored to be joined again by Tom Morris for mile #21. For those of you that may not have had an opportunity to check out his episode I highly recommend it. He is the Senior Assistant Athletic Director for Athletic Performance at Indiana University.
In this episode we take a deep dive into how breathwork is being utilized at the collegiate level and the specific techniques that he is using on a day to day basis to improve his performance in life and athletics as he continues to recover from his C6-7 Spinal Cord injury. I view this as an introduction to use of breathwork and performance. We discuss techniques including Wim Hof, nasal breathing, shallow breathing, intermittent breath holds and use of a 4-7-8 relaxing breath. I do have a disclaimer for those wishing to attempt some of these techniques. Since I due to not know any of your medical conditions I always advise you consult with your health care profession and do not recommend you attempt any of these while driving or operating heavy machinery. But saying that as someone that has been wearing a mask these past 8 plus months. I have noticed a huge difference daily with the utilization of a nasal breathing technique at rest and with exercise as well as 5-10 minutes with a 4-7-8 relaxing breath cycle scattered throughout my day . I encourage you to take a deeper dive into how maybe some of these techniques may benefit you. Exciting news for 2021 is that I will be uploading the video segment of my conversations with the guides approval. Today's conversation will be uploaded to the facebook group and the weathered Athlete you tube channel. I hope you enjoy.
