  • Andrea Cunningham Week 20 – I'm back

    Hi everyone I’m back at last with my 20th journal it’s been a while!!!  So I was off on holiday there in sunny Spain for 3 weeks and then last week was just mental with work so I didn’t get the opportunity to catch up with you all.  You’ll be please...

  • Madeline Simon (MS) - Going OK after a busy last week

    My daily POWERbreathe training is going OKish, especially since I have been quite exhausted all week following last week’s excursions. I haven’t been swimming this week, though it’s a matter of conserving my energy until things improve again. Hence not a...

  • Samuel Dallimore Week 11: Improvements all round with POWERbreathe

    This weeks training has gone well, my POWERbreathe work has come along strongly this week and I'm really feeling better for it. I feel a lot more in control of breathing in and out whilst under demand when I'm exercising, particularly for swimming. I've been doing...

  • Madeline Simon (MS) – Partying with POWERbreathe

    My brother-in-law’s 50th birthday party was excellent - the food, the music and the company. It was a late night, but I was not as late leaving as others… I think the last person left at 3am! As I promised last week, here are the results from my POWERbreathe...

  • The Music Tutors: POWERbreathe Week 5 - Exciting

    Just took another set of readings and am quite excited! It's 9 days since the last post and there have been more definite improvements for me.  Laura is very much looking to catching up where she left off when I meet up with her again.  I haven't managed to do...

  • POWERbreathe Trial – Martin Haines Week 8: Getting back into the groove

    “Its great to get back into using the POWERbreathe again.  Its interesting that after the quite rapid progression I felt using the POWERbreathe the first time round, after the enforced payoff I have not had the same speedy improvements.  I’m wondering whether...

  • POWERbreathe User Trial - Maxine Filby: Getting started with POWERbreathe

    I’m an Elite XC Mountain Bike racer; I have only been racing for three years so when it comes to training at this high level I’m still very much finding my feet.  I assumed that as I was getting fitter and my body was getting stronger that my lungs would...

  • POWERbreathe User Trial: Welcome to Nick Hutchings

    OK so I’ve used it (POWERbreathe Plus Heavy Resistance) twice a day for the past two weeks (30 breaths each time) and I feel as if I have increased my lung capacity. I particularly noticed it when I was doing hurricane training in a weight vest the other day....

  • POWERbreathe Trial – Colin White Week 4: Time to reflect

    Well I'm back in it again, after spending time with my friend and his family, I have learned a lot about myself and my life and also my family. Having a friend as fit as Matt then realising that even he is not superhuman, makes me realise how lucky I am and how...

  • POWERbreathe Trial – Melanie Ryding Week 10: China here I come!

    It's been a roller coaster ride of training since I started this trial. From smooth preparations and training all going to plan, to head injury and completely housebound, and back again (almost). It's been six weeks since the cycling accident and I wouldn't say...
