Nasal vs Oral Breathing

For anaerobic exercise (lifting weights for short periods of time, sprinting etc), preference of breathing mode of the participant should be the determining factor if a choice is available.

However, an elevated heart rate with nasal breathing indicates increased cardiovascular stress associated with this mode. Therefore, it would likely be wise to consider using oral breathing methods during aerobic training.
