Lesson 1: Exhalation technique

- Extended exhalation: Inhale through the nose, then exhale through the mouth

- Exhale forcefully: Inhale through the nose, then exhale quickly and forcefully through the mouth, helping to open the airways by coughing reflex at the end of expiration.

Lesson 2: Open your chest and control your breathing

- Movement 1: Bring your hands forward, start inhaling and bring your hands back to the maximum. Then exhale slowly and bring your hands back to the original position.

- Movement 2: Bring your elbows out in front, start to inhale, and rotate your elbows back as much as possible. Then exhale slowly and turn the elbows back to the original position.

Lesson 3: Increase respiratory movement

Chest breathing: Place one hand on your chest, one hand on your stomach. Start inhaling as much as you can to expand your wardrobe, then exhale slowly. Pay attention to the abdomen, keeping the core from growing while breathing.

- Belly breathing: Bring your hands to your stomach, inhale until the abdomen expands to the maximum, then exhale until the core collapses to the maximum.

Lesson 4: Eliminate residual air volume in the lungs

- Blow up the balloon with full force: Equivalent to exhaling with full force, helping to remove residual air in the lungs. Bring the balloon to your mouth, take a breath, then take a long breath, exhaling as hard as you can in one blow.

Lesson 5: Increase endurance

- Flying birds: Two hands holding dumbbells along the body, start to inhale and raise both hands to the horizontal. Then exhale slowly and lower your hands to the original position.

- Arms overhead: Inhale and bring both hands to hold the dumbbells overhead, then exhale and lower the dumbbells.

Exercise 6: Increase the vital capacity of each lung lobe

- Middle lobe: Wrap towel from back to front of the chest, position below the armpit. Two crossed hands are holding the two ends of the towel. Begin to inhale deeply and squeeze the towel, then let go of the towel abruptly and exhale.

- Lower lung lobe: Do the same, but the towel is located under the chest. Remember to let go of the towel before you start to exhale.

Lesson 7: Dance of the breath

- Step 1: Stand up straight, feet shoulder-width apart. Inhale and bring your arms up together. Then exhale and get your hands back to the original position.
