PowerLung is a fitness training machine designed to allow isolated training of the muscles used in breathing for both inhale and exhale. The muscles it is designed to train are: the diaphragm, the intercostals, and the accessory muscles. PowerLung is a product designed be used for exercise only and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. You should always consult your personal physician.
During exercise, your breathing muscles respond to increased oxygen requirements and may become more aerobically conditioned, but exercise does not strength train them to give hem more strength, power, or endurance. Strength trained breathing muscles can help prevent or relieve respiratory muscle fatigue or maximization during exercise.
Independent studies show that using PowerLung can relieve this feeling even in elite athletes. Most customers report less breathless in only 3 to 5 days of regular use.
To achieve this, most people use the PowerLung 3 x 10 x 2 Program. Instructions on this Program, along with other usage programs and tips, is included with every PowerLung product.
Once you have customized the PowerLung Inhale Threshold Control and Exhale Threshold Control to math your personal abilities and goals, begin the 3 x 10 x 2 Program. This program is designed for you to take 3 sets of 10 breaths 2 times a day. That is a total of 30 breaths. Don’t forget, you can use your PowerLung to warm up before any activity, exercise or competition.
Sharing does not allow regular use of PowerLung that is composed of 3 sets of 10 breaths 2 times a day and takes about 5 minutes each time. Further, it does not allow for the program to be customized to the individual as PowerLung is designed to provide and therefore it cannot be easily integrated into an individual training, exercise or practice program to allow for the full benefits of PowerLung.
