BREATH AFTER BREATH

HOW A REVOLUTIONARY NEW APPROACH TO BETTER BREATHING COULD TAKE YOUR RUNNING TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL

Patrick McKeown is in demand.

The bestselling author and instructor, who’s influenced Olympic athletes and NFL players on re-educating the body’s respiratory system, has a flight to catch; and a conference in Prague to attend; and a presentation to give; and then a training session back in London to return for. It’s enough to make anyone breathless…but he isn’t.

When McKeown unravels the science behind his ‘Oxygen Advantage’ breathing technique - exclusively to Men’s Running from a bustling Dublin airport - it soon becomes clear as he calmly explains his methods that he must practice what he preaches.

“This technique brings the mountain to you,” he reveals. “It teaches you how to simulate high-altitude training, increase the oxygen carrying capacity in your bloodstream and so allow your red blood cells to fuel new capabilities.” By following this training programme he insists a runner can sustain sharper psychological focus during exercise and become less conscious of the act of breathing. “Reduce your breathing, learn to properly regulate the amount of air you take in and you’ll teach your body to breathe more efficiently – revolutionising your fitness, endurance and performance,” he adds.
