Overbreathing Exercises

I went to the doctor because my cardio is shit and I keep throwing up in kickboxing practice even after months, doc told me that I over breathe and am flushing too much CO2 from my bloodstream. What exercises can i do to get my breathing under control? Thanks.

    tumo meditation (wim hoff method) to train your body on too much oxygen/lack of CO2
    also cordyceps pills and mullein tea to clean up and expand your lungs

    also doctors are idiots, dont believe everything they say, make your own research on how to test it

      He was a legit naturopath doctor or whatever, used to be an MD but quit because of all the evil shit going on. It also lines up with testing I've done on myself. Will look into the suggestions mentioned, thank you.

        Alright, I jumped the gun then, seems like a good doctor

        Try also grabbing a dextrose pill before workout, it might help

          suggesting wim hoff method for overbreathing just shows a lack of knowledge of the respiratory system

              the video is going to explain why you are wrong and give you an explanation as to why slowing down the breath, not hyperventilating, resolves overbreathing.

              Your response that it'll teach the body to handle the sensation is just wrong. There are biochemical changes that happen in the presence of co2, you should not even attempt to get used to the sensation of hyperventilation, as it will reduce blood flow in the body chronically, which can lead to peripheral problems. There's a reason why when you do wim hoff, you start getting numbness in your fingers and toes, this is because blood flow is being restricted to your limbs due to vasoconstriction.

                You can train your body to not vasoconstriction, by either hyperventillating, sauna or cold showers

        Thanks, Buteyko was a name that came up a few times already I'll dive into it.

        No prob. Never tried dextrose, I'll eat a bunch of honey and some salt before training if my stomach is empty.

    Bas rutten developed this O2 trainer gizmo due to his chronic asthma. It trains your intercostal muscles to increase the volume of air you intake with a breath. Could be worth a look. Literally called O2 trainer

      no need to spend $60 on an o2 trainer, you can just use a plastic straw and bend it to a challenging pressure.

    You need zone 2 training. Here's Pogacar's coach on it https://youtu.be/z82GCNXdLAA?si=c2_0tnQbwTZfzRc-
    TL;dw do zone 2 training for 45 minutes to 1 hour a day, should be at a pace where you can talk but it's uncomfortable/people over the phone could tell you're exercising. Modality doesn't really matter: could be walking. swimming, cycling, maybe jogging if you're fit enough. At the end do some V02 work, ideally 4 minutes of zone 4. Should be paced so it seems "easy" to do in the first minute but by minute 3 should be extremely difficult, way less intense than sprinting.

        have you seen a cardiologist about this? Seems like you might have an actual issue that isn't just training related

    Maybe this is overbreathing, idk, but in my prime I would never allow myself to bend over when I stopped. I would stay upright, even hands-on-head, and take painful, lung-stretching breaths until my heart rate came down. YMMV

    Try sprints 2x a week 5 times up a hill balls to the wall. Doesn't make me puke smoking every day and I get like 180bpm if I don't pay attention on cardio.
