When it comes to exercising, your breathing is much faster than normal. This is down to your requirement for more oxygen increasing. Moreover, when inhaling through the mouth, it leads to the air being cooler and dryer, in contrast to when you breathe through your nose. Usually, cold and dry air is the trigger for airways narrowing. In terms of the strategy to overcome this issue, it would be advisable that you exercise in warm and humid air.
