I tend to agree. If I’m doing any real strenuous lift, I’m not breathing out of my nose alone, I’ll exhale either out of my mouth or combination of nose/mouth. I have a deviated septum as well.
Why would you only want to breathe out of your nose while lifting heavy? [/quote]
Your missing the point. Congestion sucks. Especially while lifting.
Like others have said try a Neti Pot. Like $15-20 at Target and they are awesome. The first few days you prolly wanna use it 2 or 3 times a day, and it will generally make it a little worse to start with cos you have all that shit backed up there, but after that just use it once in the mornings will make a world of difference. It’s a little “weird” the first time you do it, but you get used to it quick once you find the right angle. The whole process only takes a minute anyway unless your really backed up then you might be sitting there with a tea pot in your nose for a minute before anything starts to come out but I used to get allergies every spring for like 6 weeks and i would general just not work out for those 6 weeks cos it was almost impossible, the neti pot changed all that.
