When we were riding on a hill, we were a little breathless and felt a bit dizzy, dry mouth, and sweating. After some understanding, I finally realized that it was not “virtual”, that is, I would not “breathe”! So how can you breathe?
1. Pay attention to regulate your breathing
It is important to regulate your exhalation and inhalation. To fill your chest, this may require several deep breaths. If it is climbing, it must be done before climbing. This is also an effective relaxation technique. If you find yourself starting to pant and slow down, then quickly relax your arms, straighten your back, and switch to a more relaxed gear. Focus on your breathing, make a slow, complete exhalation, and keep stepping on.
2. Use your mouth to assist in breathing
Inhaling and breathing while riding is also possible. When riding on a flat road, it is best to roll up your tongue, press your upper jaw, then close your mouth and breathe with your nose. For example, when going uphill and needing a large mouth of oxygen, inhale deeply with your nose first, then exhale with your mouth. The frequency must be slow. If the ramp is very long, breathing will become more and more rapid. At this time, you can take a quick breath with your nose and then exhale quickly with your mouth. If you still feel like you are breathing more and more quickly after doing the above, then you’d better go down the cart, because this slope is temporarily unable to overcome in one breath! If it is cold, it is recommended to warm up your body before going out. (Ps: Exhale through your nose, inhale twice in one circle, and exhale in two circles. You might try to find your own breathing rhythm. You can also open your mouth slightly and roll up your tongue. , Helps to heat the gas, it will be more comfortable to breathe.)
3. Prevent the breathing rhythm from being disturbed in advance
For example, when climbing a height of 4000 meters, the throat is swollen, the tonsils are swollen, and the dizziness and the brain are dilated. The reason is simple: the air is thin, and breathing must be strengthened to supply blood oxygen. At this time, it can be adjusted with drugs at night, and it is also a very effective method to apply some petroleum jelly to the nasal cavity during the day.
When you breathe faster and the time for exhalation decreases, the carbon dioxide in the lungs will increase. Therefore, less and less air can be inhaled, which leads to insufficient oxygen intake. When you fall into this kind of oxygen consumption that cannot supplement muscles and cause dizziness, dry mouth, and sweating during pedaling, it is not necessarily that you are “weak.” It may be that you have not mastered the correct breathing method.
