Breathing is unique in that it is something we can do automatically (like how you are not thinking about breathing right now reading this) or have the ability to control (now that you’re thinking about your breath, you can stop it, push the air out harder, etc.). The diaphragm, a muscle located on the lower region of the ribs below the lungs, expands and deflates the lungs when we inhale and exhale.
Todd Vogt started his rowing career at the University of Buffalo in 1992, and has since won more medals than we can count on our hands. He not only competed, he also coached all over the world. But, Todd is not your average rower. In August 2018, Todd got news that he thought would end his athletic career.
