1. Deteriorating circumstances. Individuals who have lung disease often feel that it is impossible to exercise because they suffer from muscle weakness, fatigue, and shortness of breath. When they try to exercise, they get discouraged and stop working out when they get short of breath. In reality, their subsequent inactivity only makes their symptoms worse.
2. Confronting the challenged. Among the numerous health benefits of exercise is helping the heart and lungs work better. For example, exercising on a regular basis enables the muscles to become more efficient, which, in turn, allows them to perform the same amount of work with less oxygen.
3. Stepping out. Walking is an appropriate exercise activity for individuals with lung disease who want to initiate a physical activity program. Its relatively easy, doesnt require any special equipment, can be performed almost anywhere (indoor or outdoor), and doesnt place undue stress on the exercisers musculoskeletal system.

As you start to move about, the muscles in your body send messages to your brain that they need more oxygen. Your brain then sends signals to the muscles that control breathing – your diaphragm and the muscles between your ribs – so that they shorten and relax more often. This causes you to take more breaths. More oxygen will be absorbed from your lungs and carried to the muscles you are using to exercise – mainly your arms and legs.
