Developed by Patrick McKeown, The Oxygen Advantage® uses simple, scientifically proven breathing exercises to help increase health, mental clarity and physical performance. The two foundational pillars are Functional Breathing and Simulation of High Altitude Training.
BOLT stands for Body Oxygen Level Test. The BOLT score is the time in seconds that you can hold your breath on exhalation until the first definite desire to breathe, (no willpower). It is used as a simple objective measure of chemosensitivity to carbon dioxide (how sensitive your body is to the build-up of CO2 in the blood), or a measure of breathlessness. To begin take a normal silent breath in and out through your nose, then hold your nose with your fingers and set a stop watch, then try to stay relaxed and wait until the first desire to breath. No willpower involved. Breathing should be normal as soon as you’ve finished, thats it!
The MBT or Maximum Breathlessness test is a measure of holding your breath using willpower while walking. To begin exhale normally through the nose and hold, then begin walking at a normal pace and count the maximum number of paces that you can hold your breath for.
Breathing in and out through the nose is preferable to breathing through an open mouth. Breathing through the nose, helps to retain heat and moisture in the body. Mouth breathing causes the loss of 42% more water from the body. Nasal breathing also causes greater resistance to airflow, which contributes to better gas exchange in the lungs. Nasal breathing de-humidfies the air ready to be taken in through the lungs. There are 30 reasons and counting why we should be breathing through our noses all day everyday!

The Primal Breath package includes 4 x 1hr, 1 : 1 coaching sessions price £199. We usually start with four then if any more are required they can be purchased on an individual basis. Usually a 4-6 week period is a good start to let the breathing exercises take effect and develop an understanding of the exercises, while creating a habit & making the breathing exercises part of your everyday life, also switching to nasal breathing while exercising can take 6-12 weeks depending on where your starting point is and where your goals may be.
