Struggle with asthma? Did you know that most people who have asthma avoid exercise because of being scared of having an attack or making the asthma worse? I am here to tell you that exercising with asthma is totally safe (assuming you have your “puffer” with you at all times in case of an episode!) and encouraged! Regular aerobic exercise between 60-80% of HRR has been shown to decrease incidents of asthma attack.⠀
It is important to make sure you are going to a gym with great air circulation (aka some A/C), avoiding cold, dry air, or non-air circulating environment. It is also important to spend extra time warming up and cooling down. It is also important to understand that high intensity exercise and long duration/continuous activity trigger more asthmatic events than moderate intensity and “stop and go” exercise.
