Home Shop POWERbreathe Plus – Heavy Resistance
This device is the most challenging in the Plus series of inspiratory muscle training devices and is hugely taxing for your breathing muscles. It is therefore only suitable for those who are used to POWERbreathe breathing training and who have reached the top of the Plus Medium Resistance.
It offers the heaviest resistance and the widest load range between training levels. This means that as your breathing muscles become stronger and you move up one of the training levels by increasing the resistance, there is the largest increase in cmH2O, making training the most challenging.
This ‘load’ training is similar to weightlifting, and in the instance of this ‘heavy resistance’ device, provides a variable level of load setting (weight lifted) in increments of 24/25cmH2O, from 29cmH2O to 274cmH2O.
We only recommend Heavy Resistance for those that have reached the highest load setting on a Medium Resistance device.
POWERbreathe Plus is designed to be simple and easy to use. With 11 easily adjustable levels over time you will be able to strengthen your inspiratory breathing muscles. Helping you to increase your stamina and overall wellness.
The POWERbreathe Plus is the second generation of mechanical breathing trainers, and features the following design improvements:
Our scientifically proven training regime of 30 breaths, twice a day typically takes only a few minutes and, used properly, you should start to see the benefits within just a few weeks.
Inspiratory muscle training is proven by sports scientists and medical professionals to exercise and strengthen the muscles used to breathe in.
Adjustable Load Selection Range
Please note: Heavy resistance is only for those who have reached maximum loading on a medium resistance model. If you start with a heavy resistance model, you will not experience the benefits of POWERbreathe Plus training and may struggle to acheive higher levels due to the faster progression between loads.
Precise load settings may vary due to: (1) the analogue nature of the calibrated spring tensioner and the precision with which the load is selected; (2) a small effect of inspiratory flow rate upon spring compression such that high inspiratory flow rates lead to greater spring compression, and a small increase in load.
This effect is common to all spring loaded devices, and its size is magnified by increasing spring range (it is larger in a spring with a maximum range of 90cmH2O compared with one with half this range), it is also greater at lower absolute load settings.
Keeping a record of the training level reached and the number of breaths successfully completed per session will help you analyse your progress.

This POWERbreathe was perfect for Mt Elbrus
The POWERbreathe allowed us to train in a way that was in-expensive, appropriate and the best in the market for mountaineering adventure (without actually training at altitude). It was easy enough to take travelling and use every day while allowing any level of cardiac fitness you wanted. This POWERbreathe was perfect for Mt Elbrus as the mountain had glacial rubble and ice – two very different terrains that affected the cardiac system in different ways. With more adventures coming that are not at altitude, we will carry on using the POWERbreathe as it is a great way to train the body in a very advantageous way so you can perform comfortably while working hard on expeditions.
