Monday MineFit Move: Today...We Breathe. It Matters More Than you Think

Posted By Ariel Hill-Davis, Monday, July 24, 2017
During your health and safety trainings and warm-ups, instruct workers to BREATHE through the exercises.  Muscles need air to operate properly and improve range of motion (or, as we refer to it more commonly: stretch).  Always inhale with your nose and exhale with your mouth.  

Every stretch or exercise performed during trainings should include BREATHE.  
  • Inhaling through the nose helps use the deeper part of you (diaphragm instead of the throat) to get air.  
  • Exhaling though the mouth helps use your rib muscles (internal obliques, to get technical) to push out all the air and get the best breath possible.
  • Try it!  Take just six BIG HUGE breathes, inhaling though the nose and exhaling through the mouth.  It’s better than a cup of coffee when you get done.  
Happy Monday From Your MineFit Head Coach,
Monica
