EXERCISE FOR ASTHMA

EXERCISE FOR ASTHMA

• Exercise regularly. Acute attacks are more likely to occur if you exercise only occasionally.

• Carry medication during workouts and avoid exercising alone. Use your inhaler as recommended by your physician.

• Warm up and cool down slowly to reduce the risk of acute attacks.

• When starting an exercise program, choose self-paced endurance activities, especially those involving interval training (short bouts of exercise followed by a rest period). Gradually increase the intensity of your cardiorespiratory endurance workouts.

• Educate yourself about situations that can trigger an asthma attack and act accordingly when exercising. For example, cold, dry

Air can trigger or worsen an attack. Pollen, dust, and polluted air can also trigger an attack. To avoid attacks in dry air, drink water before, during, and after a workout to moisten your airways. In cold weather, cover your mouth with a mask or scarf to warm and humidify the air you breathe. Also, avoid outdoor activities during pollen season or when the air is polluted or dusty.
