Brains need fuel.
Take 8 minutes 30s to try some breathing ladders!
Brains need fuel, and one of the best fuel supplies you can provide them is excellent breathing!
We'll be practicing some step ladder breathing today as well as;
- Developing Respiration Competency

Check out the Z-Health Performance blog on breathing ladders and their take on breathing and performance.
