  • Respiratory Muscle-Induced Metaboreflex

    A recent research paper in Experimental Physiology looks into the effect of an increase in inspiratory muscle work on blood flow to inactive and active limbs. It addresses the process of metaboreflex. What is metaboreflex? Metaboreflex is where the body restricts...

  • Effects of work of breathing on blood flow during exercise

    Published in Experimental Physiology this research sought to simultaneously assess leg and respiratory muscle blood flow during intense exercise while manipulating the work of breathing (WOB). Researchers from Canada & Brazil hypothesised: Increasing the...

  • Athletes Do Not Condition Inspired Air More Effectively than Non-athletes

    There is a study that aims to assess athletes’ ability to warm and humidify inspired air. This study is published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. It is called, Athletes do not condition inspired air more effectively than non-athletes during...

  • Effects of Inspiratory Muscle Training on Respiratory Muscle Mechanics and Haemodynamics in Healthy Adults

    “The effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) remain controversial. Many studies have examined the effect IMT has on exercise performance, but any changes to the body that come from IMT have yet to be looked at. This study will look at how someone breathes...

  • Respiratory Muscles and Inspiratory Muscle Training

    Clinical trial: Effects of Inspiratory Muscle Training on Respiratory Muscle Mechanics and Haemodynamics in Healthy Adults The purpose of this clinical trial is to study any changes to the body that come from Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT), looking at how someone...
