Inspiratory Muscle Training Improves Rowing Performance

“The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a period of resistive inspiratory muscle training (IMT) upon rowing performance.”

Conclusion:

“IMT improves rowing performance on the 6-min all-out effort and the 5000-m trial.”

Specific Respiratory Warm-Up Improves Rowing Performance And Exertional Dyspnea

“The purpose of this study was a) to compare the effect of three different warm-up protocols upon rowing performance and perception of dyspnea, and b) to identify the functional significance of a respiratory warm-up.”

Conclusion:

“Data suggest that a combination of a respiratory warm-up protocol together with a specific rowing warm-up is more effective than a specific rowing warm-up or a submaximal warm-up alone as a preparation for rowing performance.”

Exercise and respiratory muscle fatigue – Can breathing be trained?

Here is another guest blog post from guest blogger Amy Tanner. Attached is Amy’s recent presentation on respiratory fatigue. This presentation formed part of an interview at the Univerisity of Hertforshire and resulted in Amy getting the job as a lecturer relating to running and sports science in the new year. Amy will hopefully be blogging about her Powerbreathe training in the run up to the London Marathon, so keep checking back for updates from Amy.

Please leave a comment below if you found the blog post useful and interesting.

Once again thanks to Amy Tanner for this guest blog.
