Inspiratory Resistive Loading Improves Cycling Capacity: A Placebo Controlled Trial

“Respiratory muscle training has been shown to improve both its strength and endurance. The effect of these improvements on whole-body exercise performance remains controversial.”

The objective of this study was to “assess the effect of a 10 week inspiratory resistive loading intervention on respiratory muscle performance and whole-body exercise endurance.”

Conclusion:

Ten weeks of inspiratory resistive loading attenuated the heart rate, ventilatory, and perceptual response to constant workload exercise, and improved the cycling time to exhaustion. Familiarisation was not a factor and the placebo effect was minimal.”
