How often should I inhale and exhale when exercising?

Breathing Correctly When You Exercise

As you begin breathing heavily during your workout, do you ever wonder how many breathes you should actually be taking?

According to Fitness Magazine, you should aim for about 12 inhalations and exhalations per minute. Inhaling and exhaling evenly and completely makes any workout more effective by bringing extra oxygen to your muscles.

So the next time you're working out on your balance board, be mindful of your breathing as well as your core training.
