I've noticed that as a training session progresses I find it hard to do a full breath-up, specifically filling my chest. After my last DYN session this week I did some chest stretches when I got home and I seemed to experience some relief, it's also fine after a couple of hours. So I'm wondering whether this is just a bit of fatigue/tightness developing in the chest during the session? I don't currently have freedive specific stretches in my routine, just general stretching after my gym workouts and some occasional yoga asanas.

Has anyone experienced this and if so, am I identifying it correctly?

Thanks!

I'm no expert by any stretch but could it be corona? Pneumonia?
Also I had exercise induced duspnoia after 50min walking with full spearfishing gear ~10 kilos, then spearing 5 hours then walking up the hill 1hour with more weight. Also after cycling 5 hours 3 repeats going up a 850 elevation gain mountain and down.

When exercising, if the body isn't receiving the right amount of necessary blood flow it can lead to a variety of heart issues that can result in a tight chest, such as coronary heart disease. According to UCHealth, any blockage in our arteries, which limits oxygen flow throughout our body, can make our chest tighten.

Could always get a massage from someone that knows what they are doing. Therapists know the body pretty well and could have some insightful information, perhaps one just needs a massage after doing these types of exercises.
