XPT PERFORMANCE BREATHING ™
Use this post recovery workout routine to cool down and get into rest and digest recovery state before you leave the gym or after any stressful situation!
This breathing method is used to take you out of a stressful state.
It’s a down regulator – it will create a parasymathic response.
Most people don’t get into a recovery state right after a workout, they stay in a sympathetic response (high stress).
Use this routine after every workout to help your body recover.

Nose Breathing Only
Temp: 1:2 | 4 second inhale 8 second exhale
