How do I begin my fitness journey if I have breathing disorder-asthma?

Question:How do I begin my fitness journey if I have breathing disorder-asthma ? I am low on energy at all times and feel gasping for breath soon.

Answer:  i am Specialist in Exercise Therapy. Please consider this. Fitness can include Improving body composition, Functional capabilities, strength, endurance, Etc. I assume you are talking about Lowering your Fat percentage and looking fit and the kind of exercise selection based on your health condition.

Asthma is classified as a reversible (spontaneous or therapeutically) obstructive airway disease, resulting in the sudden onset of muscle spasms, swelling, and the presence of mucous in the tracheo-bronchial tree. It is caused by a hyper-irritability to a variety of stimuli (e.g., inhalants, ingestants, environment, and exercise). Exercise-induced asthma (EIA) is brought on by sustained exercise such as running or bicycling for LONGER THAN SIX MINUTES . If you develop sudden rash all over the body, abandon the exercise.





When you exercise , look for these symptoms:
* Cough or hack (due to increased mucous)
* Wheezing and dyspnea, leading to difficult exhalation
* Severe bronchial constriction where an individual becomes cyanotic, constituting an extreme medical emergency

procedure to recover: Sit and Attempt to relax. Have a glass of warm water to break down Mucous and take medical help or call emergency

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF PERSONS
* Weak abdominal
* Loss of flexibility in shoulders, lower back, and hamstrings
* Weak upper-back muscles (rhomboids)
* Reduced FEV1 during and after cessation of exercise. FEV1 refers to the forced expiatory volume of air in one second. It is a flow rate measuring the amount of air (liters) expired in one second from a maximal exhalation. It is usually expressed as a percentage of the total amount of exhaled air (forced vital capacity, or FVC)
* EIA becomes increasingly severe as the duration of exercise is increased. The response appears to be greatest after six to eight minutes of aerobic activity.

Training: Keep above factors in mind and select exercises.
NO aerobics beyond 6-8 minutes at a stretch, dont go for HIIT for prolonged period of time. Swimming raises the heart rate,increases the respiratory rate and easy on lungs. Control breathing rate to prevent hyperventilation. Avoid asthma triggers as much as possible. For example, if you are allergic to pollen, exercise indoors. Avoid outdoor exercise on polluted, cold, and dry days. wear a mask or a scarf if you must exercise outside on a cold day. (This warms and moistens the inhaled air.) If possible, exercise in warm, humid air. yoga breathing exercise designed to improve control of breathing may help control asthma, and that such techniques deserve further study. True pranayama exercises consist of three phases: puraka, kumbhaka and rechaka. During breathing for Pranayama, inhalation (puraka) stimulates the system and fills the lungs with fresh air; retention (kumbhaka) raises the internal temperature and increases the absorption of oxygen while exhalation (rechaka) causes the diaphragm to return to the original position, while air full of toxins and impurities is forced out by the contraction of inter-costal muscles. talk to an yoga expert, i have little idea here.
