Exercising with Asthma: Tips to Remember
Date:8/13/2013

Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013

Those who have Asthma should always be aware of their surroundings and what triggers them to have an Asthma attack. Below are some ways you can control your Asthma while exercising and what types of exercises are best for those with Asthma. Remember to consult your doctor if you are having problems or have any questions.

What you should do to control your Asthma when you exercise:
•Always use your pre-exercise asthma inhalers (inhaled bronchodilators) before beginning exercise.
•Perform warm-up exercises and maintain an appropriate cool-down period after exercise.
•If the weather is cold, exercise indoors or wear a mask or scarf over your nose and mouth.
•If you have allergic asthma, avoid exercising outdoors when pollen counts are high and when there is high air pollution.
•Restrict exercise when you have a viral infection, like a cold.
•Exercise at a level that is appropriate for you.

Types of Exercise that are best for Asthma:
-Activities that involve short, intermittent periods of exertion such as volleyball, gymnastics, baseball and wrestling are generally well tolerated by people with symptoms of asthma.
-Activities that involve long periods of exertion, such as soccer, distance running, basketball, and field hockey, may be less well tolerated. Also less well tolerated are cold weather sports such as ice hockey, cross-country skiing, and ice-skating. However, many people with asthma are able to fully participate in these activities.
-Swimming, which is a strong endurance sport, is generally well tolerated by many people with asthma because it is usually performed in a warm, moist air environment. It is also an excellent activity for maintaining physical fitness.
