  • POWERbreathe Trial – Martin Haines Week 1: The journey begins

    Well, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started using the powerbreathe, particularly as I am asthmatic.  Although it affects me less now than it used to when I was a child, I still have trouble doing harder interval sessions on my bike and even heavier...
