Effect Of Respiratory Muscle Training On Exercise Performance In Healthy Individuals: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis

“Two distinct types of specific respiratory muscle training (RMT), i.e. respiratory muscle strength (resistive/threshold) and endurance (hyperpnoea) training, have been established to improve the endurance performance of healthy individuals. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis in order to determine the factors that affect the change in endurance performance after RMT in healthy subjects.”

Conclusion:

Respiratory muscle training improves endurance exercise performance in healthy individuals with greater improvements in less fit individuals and in sports of longer durations… All types of respiratory muscle training can be used to improve exercise performance in healthy subjects but care must be taken regarding the test used to investigate the improvements.”
