Effects of Respiratory Muscle Training on Performance in Athletes: A Systematic Review With Meta-Analyses

“The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review to determine if respiratory muscle training (RMT) improves sport performance and respiratory muscle strength and endurance.”

Conclusion:

“Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) can improve sport performance. Closer attention to matching the ventilatory demands of RMT to those required during athletic competition and more aggressive progression of training intensity may show greater improvements in future studies.”

Respiratory Disorders In Endurance Athletes – How Much Do They Really Have To Endure?

“Respiratory disorders are often a cause of morbidity in top level endurance athletes, more often compromising their performance and rarely being a cause of death… An overview of the main tools both enabling the diagnosis of respiratory impairment in endurance athletes in a clinical and preclinical phase has also been described.”

Conclusion:

“Taking up the question of the title of this report, the researchers can say that every endurance athlete has their own limit in endurance training that once passed will produce all the possible respiratory disorders described in the report.”
