There are muscles that support your breathing. Just like any other muscle in your body, the best way to make them stronger and more efficient is to strength train them. Imagine a person who trains or exercises with weights, machines or exercise bands. When a person is training, he or she must “work” against something, a resistance.
In this case, lifting and lowering the weight. The weight creates a workload – resistance – for the muscles to work against and overcome. The more the person repeats the pattern of the exercise, the stronger his or her muscles become. As it becomes easier to do the exercise the person can increase the threshold to help make the muscles stronger.
That is threshold resistance, a proven method of training used only by PowerLung. When you breathe in and out through PowerLung, you are working against a threshold of resistance that is the same for every breath. You are not breathing through a restricted orifice where the load can be reduced just by changing the way you breathe.
Setting the “weights” on PowerLung
PowerLung has two control dials, one designed to train your inhale breathing and the other designed to train your exhale breathing. Both are adjustable to set your level (threshold) of resistance. Exactly like how a person adds resistance with weights for strength training.
PowerLung gives you complete control of the resistance for inhale and exhale on its products and is designed to help you breathe deep with every breath. You don’t have to remember it helps you do it right. Nothing locks the controls and they are both independently adjustable so you can set your inhale at a different level than your exhale.
A simple 10 minute workout
Training with PowerLung is a very simple workout to accomplish and doesn’t require much time to do. To train with PowerLung you:
- Inhale and exhale through the PowerLung (a repetition)
- Perform these repetitions 9 more times
- Take a short break
- Repeat these steps two more times for a total of 30 repetitions
That’s all it takes to workout with PowerLung! Do this twice a day to get the optimal training for your breathing.
PowerLung is better breathing
PowerLung was designed specifically for ease of use while still delivering results. Time and time again it has been proven by independent studies to train and improve your breathing. All it takes is twice a day for 10 minutes to strengthen the muscles that support your breathing.
