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:

“These 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.”

Therefore POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training can effectively be used to:

  • Warm-up the breathing muscles prior to rehearsal or performance

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.”
