A Dumbell for Your Diaphragm

When you experience high intensity training above your lactate threshold, your breathing moves from its comfort zone and increases steeply. From 12 breaths per minute at rest to 60 breaths per minute at maximum.

Eventually your inspiratory muscles weaken and fatigue, and your breathing feels harder still. Breathing rate is one the best indicators of exercise intensity.

During heavy exercise, blood flow (and hence oxygen delivery) to your exercising muscles is restricted because your inspiratory muscles fatigue, impairing performance. 

This process is called a metaboreflex and is a ‘survival’ instinct, as your body chooses the need to breathe over the need to ‘perform’. However, with a well trained and strong diaphragm (your main breathing muscle), greater blood flow to your limbs can be maintained.

POWERbreathe Inspiratory muscle training (IMT) is a dumbbell for your diaphragm. It has been scientifically proven to strengthen your breathing muscles to help them cope with the demands of breathing at a high intensity. It is also proven to reduce whole body effort, making exercise feel easier. As a result, you can increase your training intensity to ultimately improve your performance.
