  • How POWERbreathe has affected my training

    Since my last blog I have been continuing with the Powerbreathe 30 breaths. Having started with the resistance at the lowest level and struggling initially to complete the full 30, I have seen progress in that I now can manage 30 with the resistance up to level...

  • Phil Bradbury - POWERbreathe has helped my breathing

    I have just completed a 12 week trial with a medium resistance Powerbreathe. I cycle or row just about every day but do not compete formally so I cannot quote figures of percentage improvement in particular events. Having said that I do push myself very hard...

  • Breathing definately is the key to improving rowing performance

    Well I’ve had my POWERbreathe for a little while now. My first attempt to use it showed how much improvement I had to make! I tried the thirty breaths at level one and failed! Very soon after the arrival of my POWERbreathe came my first test in the lead up...

  • Phil Bradbury - my breathing seems significantly easier (week 9)

    I have just completed week 8 with the Powerbreathe.   This week still working at level 5 with my 10 breaths at half load, 30 at full load and 10 at half load routine.   I could probably move the level up a little but I think for me it is more beneficial to concentrate...

  • Phil Bradbury - my perception is that my breathing has changed (week 7)

    I have just completed week 7 with the Powerbreathe.   At the end of the week I moved up to a setting of 5, still with my 10 breaths at half load, 30 at full load and 10 at half load routine.   I felt able to move the setting up because I was achieving much fuller...

  • Pete Marston - My lungs feel like they’ve had a workout like they do after very hard rowing

    Having never used a POWERbreathe before yesterday I really didn't know what to expect when I took it out of the box and read the instructions. 30 breaths twice a day, once in the morning, once in the evening. That sounds easy. I figure I am best starting on the...
