Here’s the previous post for some context.
About those downsides of over-breathing.
When the muscles, joints and stuff are not getting enough oxygen they’ll have a lower stress tolerance. Which is not great for resiliency.
This same lack of oxygen reduces how much energy you have available for demanding physical and cognitive tasks. Making it harder to keep up on the tango floor (it’s about the body and the mind).
Over-breathing also leads to a continuous loop where your body thinks it’s in constant danger. Heightening the sense of anxiety and reducing psychological stress tolerance.
It’s no surprise then that there’s an established link between eating disorders and obsessive-compulsive behaviour and over-breathing.
How to not over-breathe? That’s coming up tomorrow.
