  • PR should not have this effect if done/supervised properly. Maybe it is the start of a flare up. Perhaps it would be better to check it out with your GP?

  • Good for you 2nd time at pr baxter1. What's your weather like today, murky? misty? damp, wet, raining? If so that is likely to be your problem. Exercise normally has a tendency to help the diaphragm area and in turn helps us breathe easier. Although there are cases of exercise induced asthma, if you are an asthma patient as well as having COPD, I would check with your doctor or respiratory team for best ways around this.

  • thanks for the replys weather sunny mild today yes i have copd/asthma crossover i will check with respiratory team about my exercise regime my time in gym was well supervised cant complain about that to be fair

  • Hi Baxter, I have just completed my 3rd session and I'm finding it really good,. The hardest part is doing the exercises at home and filling in the book. Hope you find it more manageable as you go along. :)
