Recently I read online about some breathing exercises which I have been practicing, but most of the winter I have been holed up in my apartment with little physical exercise. The same article that recommeneded the breathing exercises also stated that bicycling was one of the best exercises for those suffering with COPD. I would like to know if others have any experience with this or what kind of physical exercises others… read more

I have had COPD for over 20 years and been told to do more exercise, this I try to do do but get out of breath quite easily. When I stop to get my breath back people often stop and ask if I am ok concerned about the way I look this can be very embarassing for me. Is there any simple exercises that I can do at home in order to get fitter so that I can go out for walks with out being embarssed I can be out of breath after 200 yard or metres.

How Can I Excercise With COPD?

How Can I Excercise With COPD?

I can't even go to the bathroom and back without being out of breath and gasping for air. It feels like I have been kicked in the stomach very hard kind of out of breath. I am on oxygen 24/7 already. I can't raise my arms above my head or lift anything either. I am overweight and know if I lost weight it would have to help. I do not overeat and have cut my sodas down to 2 a day. I maintain my weight but can't exercise. If you know any tricks to exercise please let me know please
