Use “Breath-hold Walking” to increase carbon dioxide and circulation in the body.

“Breath-hold Walking” is a technique to increase carbon dioxide and, thus, increase circulation in the body. There are huge benefits as it helps train the body to do more with less. You will have more energy and can do more. Slower, longer exhales, mean higher carbon dioxide levels. With that bonus carbon dioxide, we gain a higher aerobic endurance.


  1. Go to a grassy park, beach, or anywhere else where the ground is soft.
  2. Completely exhale, then walk slowly, counting each step.
  3. Once you feel a powerful sense of air hunger, stop counting and take a few very calm breaths through the nose while still walking.
  4. Breathe normally for at least a minute, then repeat the sequence.
    The more you practice this technique, the higher the count.
