through the nose or mouth?

when jogging, rowing etc... should you breathe through the nose and out of the mouth or vice versa? my PE teacher did go on about something but i cant remember as it is so long ago.

cheers

    Personally I don't think it matters. Martial artists or boxers should breathe through their nose when training.

    I have some sort of sinus problem so to avoid choking myself, mouth most of the time!

    I have experimented with this and although i can do either my heart rate is lower if i breath through the mouth by about 5-10 bpm

    Always try to breath in through the nose and out through the mouth! Not that easy when you are knackered though!

    This is your second topic concerning breathing the block!!!! Have you got an obsession with it or something??!! LOL. People who make a conscious effort to breathe through the nose rather than the mouth are apparently healthier as the hair follicles in the nostrils help to filter out any impurites, bacteria, polution etc

    i just wanted to find out the most efficient way to breathe when exercising etc... also its such a fundamental part of our existence, i wanted a slighlty more conscious awareness of it.



    ok. i'm obsessed. deeply.

    The Block I could be wrong but if you are interested in the topic I think Scot Sonnon covers breathing in one of his videos.
