Breathe right when exercising and lower your heart rate

Differences in breathing between men and women – Even when the smaller physical size of women is taken into account, their lungs are still smaller than men’s. Women also have narrower airways (breathing tubes), which means it’s harder to move air in and out of the lungs. Because women are unable to ‘heavy breathe’ as well as men in response to strenuous exercise, research has shown that many women may experience a drop in the amount of oxygen in their blood and a corresponding increase in their breathlessness.
