This online course, Just Breathe 101: Athletic Performance by Debra Dent, examines several factors related to breathing dysfunction that may alter athletic performance. 

A discussion of the involvement of the diaphragm and trunk stability during the athletic performance will be presented.  Studies relating to the effects of fatigue of the diaphragm, core fatigue, impact loading during running, and the effects of the Metaboreflex on performance are presented and discussed. Finally, the effects of progesterone on female runners are examined.

In this online course we will:

  • Review pulmonary physiology during exercise
  • Learn about the function of the deep core
  • Understand the postural activity of the diaphragm and response to fatigue
  • Discuss impact loading and locomotor respiratory coupling
  • Understand the response to breathlessness
  • Learn about metaboreflex and its effects
  • Have an inspiratory muscle training discussion
  • Discuss the response to progesterone in females

In this online course, you will:

  1. Describe the physiological response of aerobic exercise on the respiratory system.
  2. Describe the effect of running on the viscera and the diaphragm.
  3. Describe the response to inspiratory muscle fatigue on the body.
  4. List one device that may increase the endurance of the respiratory muscles

Please note: Just Breathe 101 is a course series for professionals whereas the Breathing Essentials series is a version for the general public and can be found in Embodia's general public library.  Just Breathe 101 teaches the technical biomechanics of the rib cage and the course is more treatment-oriented. This course is apart of the Just Breathe 101 course series:
