Well done Myriam for a 12’ Amrap
I get so out of breath doing DUBs. Are there any suggestions on how to breathe?
Janine - I think the key is finding a nice consistent pace and sticking to it. Think jogging vs sprinting. Try to be as efficient as you can with the jumps i.e. dont jump too high and expend more energy than needed.
I agree with everything Steve says, finding a consistent rhythm/tempo is way more important than speed. I'll never be an expert but have put a lot of focus on DUs lately and have found that slower is better - it helps me with breathing, less shoulder/arm fatigue and messing up a little less.
I have found breathing in on even and out on odd reps helps me keep going. It’s a bit fast but then I can take long slow breaths between sets. Also helps me keep count… Hope this helps!
