Will my lungs ever get stronger? I dont smoke an have been active all my life pretty much an love hiking an jogging etc..but i get out of breath fast an once after i jogged i coughed for the rest of the evening an could still feel it in my lungs the next day. Is there any lung exercise to help? I can do 30 min cardio full strength an im fine..
Are you breathing out of your mouth and nose?
Try doing Pilates workouts online/ youtube. They really work on breathing techniques and will strengthen your lungs and endurance level.
Have you ever had asthma? Because this may be the reason for this coughing and such.
Let me know of you want anymore info :)
Weather could be a factor as well. I was that way too when I first started out with endurance runs but as time goes by you'll adapt and overcome as long as there isn't a medical reason for it. Just don't "cough up a lung" as the saying goes lol.
