Breathing Tips for Runners: An Infographic

This Infographic, created by Pro-Form, provides hints and tips to help you build your lungs and heart so you can run faster and easier.

Research has shown that fatigue of the breathing muscles may result in diversion of blood away from the leg muscles. This means that the supply of oxygen to the legs is reduced and your performance is impaired. POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training specifically targets the breathing muscles, strengthening them by around 30-50%, helping to eliminate breathing fatigue and significantly improving running performance.
