“The aim of this study was to examine the effects of the cycle-run and run-cycle successions of the triathlon and duathlon, respectively, on respiratory muscle strength and endurance.”
“Respiratory muscle strength and endurance were less decreased after the cycle-run succession and that cycling induced a greater decrease in respiratory muscle endurance than running.”

The UK’s largest Triathlon Show took place 12th – 15th February 2015 at Excel, London and received over 50,000 visitors.
There were over 300 brands and stands, all with the focus on improving performance in the world of swimming, cycling and running, helping triathletes prepare for their next triathlon.
POWERbreathe was there and we talked to may triathletes about how POWERbreathe IMT can help them overcome breathing effort, when their lungs are subjected to huge demands in each of the three disciplines.
We also met a young gentleman named Ryan Steer who was interested in POWERbreathe for his friend Lee Cairns who’s currently training for a trip to Everest Base camp which he’s reaching on a hand cycle. We were very pleased to be able to help Ryan select the most appropriate model for his friend, and we’d like to send Lee best wishes for his challenge.
We’ve also since heard from another visitor to the show, Alan Newman, who popped over to our stand and, as he put it, put his lungs through their paces! Alan left a comment on our Facebook page saying he was excited to be starting his POWERbreathe training tonight. We’re excited too and hope Alan will come back to us and share his news.
