Default Tightness of the Lungs

Im a Muay Thai fighter, and train all year around, and fight just about every other month, sometimes every month.

When ive been training lately, on some days ive had the feeling of tightness in my lungs, like im not getting enough oxygen per breath. When im training for a fight i train twice a day 6 days a week, so my fitness levels high, and im not sure why this is happening. Could it be a problem with the heart? Also on my off time, when im not training for a fight, i smoke weed, so thats my first thought, but this problem only recently started happening to me. I would usually stop smoking like 5-6 weeks out. In the training for my last fight, the training was going well , my body was fit, and i was hittin pads hard for 5 x 5 min rounds no problem, n then just on a random day, i wouldnt be able to do 3 rounds without gasing out. Some days i would start off with my run and i would feel my lungs tighten up. Again this all only started happening about 2 months ago, and ive been fighting for almost 5 years. I also recently started taking protein shakes to help with recovery, and it helped the recovery of my muscles, but mayb that could be a factor?

Has this happened to any1, does any1 have an idea of what it could be? If any1 could give me some help, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

it's the smoking, bro. gotta quit smoking, get that tar out of your lungs. i've heard that fruit, mainly apples help clearing up your lungs and reversing the effects of smoking. good luck.

Could be lack of oxygen to your lungs with to much blood flow causing them to cramp and tighten . Smoking could be the cause of the oxygen shortage of breath etc

theres no history of asthma in my family, but i thought that was a possiblity also. The problem is the doctors here r ****, and dont really give u anything to help the problem, or they do some tests and never get back to you. Ive smoked weed for almost 9 years, on and off. I thought that the weed is the main problem, but some of my boyz smoke weed and train and fight, and it doesnt affect them the same way. i kno every body is different tho , so i was just trying to get some other advice. 1 other thought i had, was that mayb my body goes from extreme to extreme with the hard training to smoking blunts everyday, and that probly has a negative affect also. Thanks for the replies. I quit for good this time i think.

Sometimes, the most obvious is usually the culprit. If anything other than oxygen is entering your lungs in greater amounts, there's a price to pay somewhere in the fatigue department.

2 a days, 6 days a week?

How about taking a day or two off to rest?
