Hi everyone! I have 2 clients that yawn excessively during exercise. What causes this?
During boot camp I have a girl who is working hard but yawns excessively - I thought it could be improper breathing so I have been reminding her. I just gained a new client this week and during our one on one strength training session she also yawned excessively. Could there be an underlying health risk?
Here is a link that may help:
What time of day is your boot camp. Is it 5:30AM? Is it late in the day? Many people yawn as a consequence of fatigue.
I would assist them with showing them how to take deep breaths and ask them to practice this throughout their day
I also believe yawning is caused by a lack of oxygen. Are your clients breathing to use the full capacity of their lungs? I have also heard that the cause of yawning is still up for debate.
