By inhaling?I sometimes even play them backwards.
Seriously though, I have found that as a latebloomer with lots of other interests, I simply won't get around to all of the practice regimens that are recommended. Long tones, overtones, and altissimo are of interest, but I have more basic needs. Altissimo is simpy annoying if the player doesn't have a grasp of chord tones (IMHO). And as a latebloomer, by the time I figure out what a C-7 is, the measure has passed. I suppose I could play the overtone series on C, but that doesn't get me much.
My playing is largely selfish (sorry, potential audience). It's not a career. It's not long-term (I'll be fantastic in 30 years. My coffin will jump and jive). So my choice of what to do for realistic improvement is limited.
