Our spinning instructor keeps telling us to "breathe IN through the nose, OUT through the mouth." Why do I have to breathe like that? I have a damaged nasal passage (thanks to a hockey stick), and breathing in through the nose is difficult. I can get more air and get it faster by breathing in through the mouth.
Just wondering what makes breathing in through the nose so beneficial.
I agree, if your having trouble baboon, just go with what feels right for you.
Yeah, that's what I'll keep doing. If I try to inhale through the nose, I don't get enough oxygen and I'll pass out. I was playing hockey about ten years ago and took a slash to the face. Breathing through the nose has not been the same since.
