There's a big difference between breathing simply to stay alive and breathing to maximize your fitness efforts!
First of all, most people breathe with the chest which is shallow breathing. Unfortunately this is an extremely poor way of breathing and you'll only be able to reach half (or even less) of your potential! To breathe properly it must be done with the stomach. This is sometimes known as Diaphram Breathing. And to maximize it even further, gently touch your tongue to the roof of your mouth. Doing this will facilitate the deep stomach breathing.
Now to add even more to it, there is a fantastic exercise from the Chinese martial arts called "The Dragonback" which coordinates entire body movement with the breathing. Watch the video to learn more about it!
