Is POWERbreathe Good For Asthma?

A Bit Of Background

“I’ve had asthma my entire life and been a competitive cyclist most of my adult life. I started using a powerbreathe green about 6 weeks ago on level 2 in hopes of getting away from using an inhaler so often. I probably increase the setting about once a week.”

“I’ve noticed a huge improvement in 6 weeks with about 90% compliance to the program.”

Kevin

“I occasionally try easier and harder settings to see if there is a difference in exertion and it’s noticeably easier. I haven’t had to refill my inhaler Rx, so on top of improved quality of life, I’m saving money on co-pays. In a few more weeks I’ll graduate to a Blue/ medium PB.

So, Is POWERbreathe Good For Asthma?

“It’s improved my breathing so much that I have had to relearn pacing on climbs because the perceived exertion is lower at a given intensity.”
