Managing Severe Asthma Safely During Exercise


1.Yes, You Can Work Out

It can keep you in good shape. As long as your asthma is under control, you should be able to do most types of exercise. Follow these tips to get the most from your workouts, and stay safe if an attack strikes while you hit the gym.


2.Go Cardio

Jogging, swimming, bicycling, walking — anything that makes your heart beat faster — can help. Stick to moderate intensity. What does that mean? You should be able to talk while you do it. Also, be aware of your personal triggers, and knowing your body and about your asthma. Exercise may not be an issue, but the circumstances around exercise may be.
