In general, people with asthma tend to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for fear of an asthma attack or worsening of their symptoms.
However, physical training was well tolerated among people with asthma, and improves heart and lung function, according to a systematic review of the research literature published at the Cochrane Database. In fact, as a result of the research, the authors of the review recommended that people with asthma should perform regular exercise training.
When exercise is performed in moderation and within your personal abilities, it can have many positive benefits. The research indicates that fear of asthmatic attacks should not prevent you from creating a personal exercise habit.
