Breathing Exercises to Improve Lung Capacity: A Safe and Easy Breathing Technique


Breathing exercises to improve lung capacity are extremely useful and can have unlimited health benefits.

However, breathing exercises can be dangerous if done incorrectly and can hurt your lungs, heart and nerves.

lungsI’d like to introduce you to My System and a safe breathing technique found in it that improves the strength of your lungs. You’ll also learn about the other incredible health benefits of My System which include developing your:

  • Muscles
  • Skin
  • Internal organs including your digestive system, kidney and liver.

Why Your Lungs and Breathing are Important

Your lungs are an extremely important organ and one of the top factors to your bodies overall health.

Your lungs and breathing are responsible for your bodies energy.

You hear the word metabolism thrown around a lot but very few people know what makes up your metabolism. Your metabolism is simply the combination of oxygen and the food you eat.

This combustion is turned into energy and controls the temperature of your body.

What happens when you have a poor metabolism? Metabolic disease.

Different types of metabolic diseases are:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Anemia

If you get poor oxygen in take and have weak lungs, you are at danger for those deadly diseases.

Also, your confidence is directly related to your breathing. Weak and nervous people tend to breath feebly and this leads to anxiety.

Confident people breath deeply and fully and find it almost impossible to feel worried.

A few other things healthy breathing can prevent are:

  • Asthma
  • Low energy
  • Concentration problems
  • Depression

And many, many more problems.

The Dangers of Breathing Exercises

Many people unwisely give out breathing exercises which can lead to really bad health issues.

The problem with breathing exercises is they can’t be performed with any amount of strain. If they are done too aggressively you can do a lot of damage to your nerves, heart and lungs.

This was a problem that actually affected me greatly and is the inspiration behind this website. I want to create a place where only safe and easy health tips are given which give amazing health results.

Anyway, the only way to practice deep breathing by its self is to completely relax your body. This relaxation skill can take months to learn and can be very tedious. Many people don’t have the time or patience for this.

A better and easier way to practice breathing is in between exercises or right after an exercise. It’s safe because there is a need for more air which prevents straining.

I’ve tried so many different breathing techniques and know from first hand experience that between exercise is the best, and most fun and comfortable way to get all the benefits from breathing exercises.

What a Proper Deep Breath Looks Like

Before we into My System, let’s take a look at what a proper deep breath looks like and some practical hints in taking one.

Some people recommend “belly breathing” and while it does have good benefits, it is a weak breathing exercise.

During a proper deep breath your whole chest moves upwards and your ribs outwards during the inhale and you relax all those respiratory muscles and let the air out on its own during the exhale

The goal is to get as much air in as possible and as much air out as possible with the least amount of muscular effort or strain.

Here are some other tips for the inhale:

  • Never suck the air in through your nose. The air should come in on its own accord from the vacuum created from the chest and rib movements and the nostrils left open. If you hear yourself sniffing in air than you are doing it wrong.
  • Your abdomen should remain relaxed the entire time.
  • Your head should only lean back slightly.
  • Don’t arch or pull back your shoulders. Lift the chest and shoulders upwards.

Here are some tips for your exhale:

  • Don’t breath through your mouth. All breathing is done through your nose because it has filters that clean the air.
  • Again, keep your abdomen relaxed
  • Simply relax your muscles and let the air come out on its own. Your chest should sink and lower.
  • Contract your lower ribs in as far possible to get as much air out as possible.

The exhale is more important than the inhale and should last longer than the inhale. There’s many reasons for this which you can read about here.

Any muscle or organ you don’t use will lose its ability to function over time. As we get older and because of how stationary modern life is, your begin to breath shallowly.

This leads to parts of your lungs not being used which can be damaging. Breathing the way I described earlier in this section will exercise your lungs and keep them healthy for life.

My System

The deep breathing, as I said before, is done between exercises in My System while standing.

You breath in the exact same manner I just described in the last section. You put your hands on your hips and press them down on the inhale.

my systemThis relieves the weight of your shoulders and creates a powerful vacuum for the air to rush in.

In all there are nineteen exercise in My System and you take two standing deep breaths between each one.

  1. Tim

    This is actually really interesting. I had no idea breathing was so important until just now…lol you get what I mean. I had no idea it was so connected to things like confidence, muscle strength and metabolism that’s for sure. I am definitely going to go through your videos when I am able. I have bookmarked your site. Thanks for sharing this little gem. Cheers

    1. Dylan

      Thanks for the comment Tim,

      I was in the same boat. I never understood the importance of breathing either until i started researching it a few years ago. Im glad you’re going through the videos. Make sure to share with friends and family!

    Did not know breathing exercises can effect your lungs, heart and your nerves. Glad you mentioned that first. Sorry to hear you suffered some problems due to the exercises. But I am glad you are informing us what to do right. So as long you don’t strain during the breathing exercises everything should be okay. With that being said I been running everyday now and I am going to practice these exercises. I was always taught to breathe in through your nose and out with your mouth. But I feel like I get way more air breathing in with my mouth. So basically it is breathe in with your mouth and out with your nose? That does seem a lot more effective for me.

      Thanks for commenting Brandon,

      Running is really good for your lungs. When you’re running you have to breath in through your nose and out through your nose. An easy way to get this down is to inhale for four steps and exhale for 6 steps. Eventually you wont have to think about it

  3. Martina

    I’ve been told I have a high metabolism because I can eat a lot without gaining weight. It’s interesting to know that the metabolism is linked to breathing too. Another fact I didn’t know about before was that you’re not supposed to hear your breath on the inhale.

    One question I have is if someone learns to play a musical instrument that involves the breath like flute or saxophone, will they naturally breathe correctly from learning? Or is it still possible for them to breathe incorrectly while playing well? I took years of flute lessons, so I’m curious.

    1. Dylan

      Thanks for commenting Martina,

      You probably breath well already. Some people are born with stronger lungs and the ability to breath deeply. And I couldn’t answer the isntrument question becaue I don’t know enough about instruments and their influence on your breathing.

    Thanks, Dylan, for sharing this information as well as the 6 weeks of training to learn the proper breathing and exercises. I do know, from my studies, that disease cannot live in highly oxygenated cells, so this makes perfect sense to me. I just didn’t have any idea of how important it was to breathe correctly in order to get your cells properly oxygenated. I have bookmarked your site and will give it a try. Thanks again.

    1. Dylan

      Thanks for commenting Debby,

      You’re right, disease cant survive in oxygenated cells. And form is very important when breathing and we were meant to breathe a certain way. I’m glad to hear you’re going through the videos. Make sure to share with friends.
