Deep breathing before a workout helps deliver more oxygen to your muscles. This gets your blood pumping and makes a workout more worthwhile. Plus, between your work life and home life, stress builds up quickly. Deep breathing can also help alleviate this stress and get you in better focus for your workout. Livestrong.com suggests spending 10 minutes at the beginning of your routine with a brisk walk while focusing on inhaling deeply through your nose, and exhaling through your mouth.
