Proper breathing is an essential part of exercising. Knowing and executing proper technique can have a significant impact on performance.
The deep breathing you do during exercise also helps speed up detoxification in the body. You take in more oxygen, which helps all the cells to perform their jobs, including removing toxins. At the same time you exhale carbon dioxide, which is a by-product of the various functions performed by the body.
