Summary

The secret to your health, fitness and overall wellbeing lies in the most basic and overlooked aspect of your workout: how you breathe. Developing body strength while ignoring breathing strength is counterproductive. 

In The Oxygen Advantage, Patrick McKeown combines his successful breathing exercises with techniques designed to simulate high-altitude training in a highly successful programme that will significantly improve anyone's health but will also empower athletes to improve their sports performance. These scientifically validated exercises have the potential to drastically improve your overall fitness, whether you are a habitual couch potato or an Ironman triathlon champion.

These easy-to-use techniques can help to reduce your breathlessness, improve your sleep as well as reduce anxiety and stress. Drawing on his own experiences as an ex-asthmatic and the work he has done to help athletes and asthma sufferers alike to achieve greater fitness, Patrick shows you the key to a healthier, fitter you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The importance almost lost by repetition

This book has some great advice and methods for improving health. All backed up by science and research. However, I did find the book lost its emphasis with all the added narrative and what felt like a long list of testimonials. I understand it and believe in the method but it was hard work to get the book finished.

Very interesting

A good hours worth of very interesting material that’s well worth listening to. Lots of benefits and got me into nasal breathing. However, very repetitive, padded out with all sorts of could and ifs etc. Diet advice etc that was a bit of an unwanted tangent. The narrator did well and his enthusiasm exudes just like Patrick. I’d probably advise to buy the book and it’ll be easier to filter out what’s not relevant to you. Glad I listened to it, lots of useful information but was waiting for it to end from half way through.
