Respiratory Muscle Training in Healthy Humans: Resolving the Controversy

“An overview of the literature that rationalizes contradictory findings about respiratory muscle training in healthy people.”

Conclusion:

“It is likely that the ergogenic effect of respiratory muscle training (RMT) has a multifactorial etiology that may include:

  1. The direct effect of RMT upon respiratory muscle fatigue
  2. RMT's indirect effects upon improving blood flow distribution to limb locomotor muscles in heavy exercise
  3. RMT's direct and indirect effect upon the intensity with which both respiratory and peripheral efforts are perceived.”
