Asthma treatment efforts have been implemented pharmacologically with drugs that are controller nor reliever. Successful treatment of asthma should be supported from the physical factors such as physical exercise and education, one of the efforts is asthma gymnastic, it is necessary to reinforce the respiratory muscles. Lung function measurements used to assess airway obstruction, lung function abnormalities reversibiliti and lung function variability. Asthma is an reversible obstructive lung disease. The dominant clinical symptoms is a history of episodes the shortness of breath, especially at night are often accompanied by a cough. One way to relieve the obstruction is doing some physical sports such as gymnastics asthma. Gymnastics asthma is considered capable of reducing obstruction and increase the elasticity of bronchial and respiratory muscles.
