Lately I've been trying to find ways to increase my support which I think is lacking. One thing I thought of is doing lip bubble sirens and trying to keep doing them for as long as possible until I am totally out of breath. Does this sound like a good exercise? What exercises do you do?

Edit: Oh shoot, wrong forum sorry

Support is simply regulating airflow and lip rolls are good for that. Don't see the point in doing them on one breath for as long as possible. I believe that what you want to build is coordination, not muscle.

Do them on descending major arpeggios: 8531. Airflow should be steady, sing it like one long phrase not 4 different tones. If you want you can repeat the arpeggio 3 times like this: 8531358531358531.

I would also not advise doing them until you run out of breath at the end. This will build a bad habit of straining unnecessarily. Whether it is warm-ups or singing, finish with the feeling like you could have repeated one more measure but don't have to do so.
