Practice breath holds to simulate high-intensity exercise

Instructions

  1. This exercise is only recommended for those with a BOLT score greater than 20 seconds. 
  2. Begin walking, cycling, running or otherwise moving around for your exercise.
  3. After your warm-up, 10-15 minutes into your session, gently exhale and hold your breath until you reach a medium to strong air shortage.
  4. Then release your breath hold, inhale and resume normal breathing for 1 minute. 
  5. Repeat the breath hold every minute or so, 8-10 times. 
    You should be able to recover normal breathing within a couple of breaths after each breath hold.
  6. Continue to perform your exercise throughout the whole process.
