Are athletes more susceptible to airway dysfunction?

The Study

Environmental influence on the prevalence and pattern of airway dysfunction in elite athletes‘. The purpose of this study recently published in ‘Respirology’ was to evaluate the prevalence of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), often known as exercise-induced asthma, in elite Great British (GB) boxers and swimmers. This study was the first to screen the entire elite Great British (GB) Swimming and Boxing teams using a eucapnic voluntary hyperpnoea (EVH) challenge. Findings from the study support the notion that athletes who train and compete in provocative environments at sustained high ventilation have an increased susceptibility to airway dysfunction. Conclusion: “The prevalence of EIB was ninefold greater in swimmers when compared with boxers. Athletes who train and compete in provocative environments at sustained high ventilation may have an increased susceptibility to EIB. It is not entirely clear whether increased susceptibility to EIB affects elite sporting performance and long-term airway health in elite athletes.” In scientific tests, Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) has been shown to decrease dyspnea, increase inspiratory muscle strength, and improve exercise capacity in asthmatic individuals. POWERbreathe IMT is scientifically proven, effective, low-cost and a drug-free adjunct to traditional asthma treatments and can be used as part of an athlete’s daily training to reduce symptoms. Supportive Study Effect of Inspiratory Muscle Training on Exercise Tolerance in Asthmatic Individuals concluded that, “IMT attenuates inspiratory muscle fatigue, reduces the perception of dyspnea, and increases exercise tolerance. These findings suggest that IMT may be a helpful adjunct to asthma management that has the potential to improve participation and adherence to exercise training in this group.”

Rio Gold Medal Winner Uses POWERbreathe

Robson Conceição is Brazil’s first Olympic boxing gold medalist, winning at this year’s Rio Olympics. And he is using POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT).

Why Conceição began boxing

As a child Robson Conceição took to fighting with other children on the streets of Salvador. His uncle is an ex-street fighter and is known as one of the bravest street fighters. Conceição wished to improve his fighting skills and so a friend began teaching him boxing techniques. It’s thanks to a social project in Salvador that Conceição took the decision to stop street fighting and start boxing instead. He could then see it as a way of life.

Conceição is an Olympic champion

Robson is having more success than his previous Olympic appearances in Beijing and London. He is fighting in the lightweight boxing weight class. And this year he made history at the Rio Olympics in Brazil. Robson is Brazil’s First Olympic Boxing Gold Medalist.

POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training

Robson Conceição is training his inspiratory muscles with POWERbreathe under the guidance of Brazilian physiotherapist, Mateus Esquivel. It will improve his breathing strength and stamina when fighting. It also helps to improve his general fitness without exerting his body any more than his sparring sessions do. POWERbreathe IMT is also beneficial in speeding up his recovery between bouts of fighting.

POWERbreathe for recovery

Conceição performs a recovery breathing set by using his POWERbreathe IMT on a lower setting. This training speeds up lactate clearance more effectively than a traditional recovery. Researchers in Brazil have found that breathing against a small inspiratory load straight after exercise reduces lactate by 16%. And it’s quick. When using POWERbreathe for recovery, after just 5-minutes lactate concentration is the same as that found after 15 minutes of passive recovery.

Congratulations

We are sending our congratulations to Brazil’s First Olympic Boxing Gold Medalist, Robson Conceição! We also would like to thank Mateus Esquivel for supporting Robson throughout his breathing training.

Congratulations to Anthony Ogogo who’s been selected for Team GB!

The British Olympic Association (BOA) selected Anthony, silver medallist at the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games and Men’s Middleweight (75kg) to be part of Team GB’s largest ever Olympic boxing squad.

We presented Anthony with a POWERbreathe to help him quickly improve his breathing strength and stamina following a period of inactivity as he recovered from a sports injury. Anthony will be keeping us updated with his training progress, which understandably will be ad hoc as he obviously has more pressing matters to think about.

Rob McCraken, Team GB Boxing Team Leader and British Amateur Boxing Association Performance Director said of Anthony,

“Anthony really deserves this after everything he has been through. He has had to overcome some terrible luck with injury and it is great to see that his dedication, hard work and determination have been rewarded. He is a top class boxer who has proven he can beat anyone in the world on his day.”

Anthony’s pride shines though in his response to being selected for Team GB,

“It is an amazing feeling to know I am going to the Olympics after all the challenges I have had to overcome. I have had so much bad luck with injuries but I never lost faith in myself and have had some amazing support from the coaches and all of the back-up team that have helped me to get over my shoulder injury and make it to London. It will be a dream-come-true to represent Great Britain in a home Olympics and I cannot wait to walk out in that Arena in London.”

Good luck from us all Anthony, and we’ll keep following your news on your website.

And keep checking back for POWERbreathe training feedback from Anthony, on the POWERbreathe Blog.

Anthony Ogogo – Victory in European Olympic qualifier in Turkey

A big POWERbreathe shout goes out to Anthony Ogogo who reached the quarter finals of the European Olympic qualifiers on Monday 16th April.

Anthony beat his contestant in the last 16 of the middleweight category in Trabzon, Turkey.

Anthony has always strived to secure a place in the London 2012 Games and is progressing well towards his goal, with just two wins away from fulfilling his Olympic dream.

We’ll be keeping an eye on this 23-year-old’s performance, as will many others, and when he finds time away from his training and competing, Anthony will be letting us know how his POWERbreathe training is going. But for the meantime he needs to focus and concentrate all his efforts on his goal. Follow Anthony’s progress here.

So please join us in congratulating Anthony and leave a comment here.
