And then what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna inhale exhale normally like you would normally but on the exhale we’re just gonna breathe in from the spacer so and then when you breathe it out you’re gonna hold it for at least five seconds or as long as you can and then you’re gonna breathe out like if you were breathing from a straw does that make sense yeah okay
