about two weeks ago I had my frst ever asthma attack. I'm a 40 year old woman who never had great lungs (somewhat smallish, peak flow always some 50-90 below normal depending on calc method), but also never had serious problems either. Call me thick, but I'd love to work out again as soon as possible. I do enjoy it a lot and it's my method of relaxation.
My workout routine for the last months were high intensity interval bodyweight and weight exercises and I'd hoped to add heavy lifting soon. I have dodgy feet which prevent me from doing any type of cardio apart from swimming, hence I chose high intensity strength training for becoming a bit stronger, but also generally fitter.
Today I tried out a few weighted squats (worked) and a few kettlebell swings (worked less good), and I realized I need a good warm up routine for my lungs. Do you have any suggestions that don't involve cardio? I have a big boxing bag, floor mat, gym ball and an array of weights and kettlebells. I also have a crosstrainer though my feet don't allow me to use it regularly.
Some additional info: I currently don't live in the UK but in an extremely hot, dry and at times very dusty country. The whole house is cooled by one air conditioning system which is a bit on the weak side but for some reason my workout room always feels cool. I prefer to avoid the pool at the moment as it is hardly cooled and has no sun protection.
Thanks a lot.
