A second wind, from a bigger breath
I bought this device to aid in my respiratory training. I felt I lacked lung capacity not just on the bike, but in general, and so gave this product a try. Three weeks on the recommended usage regimen later, I definitely noticed improvements in my lung c

I have been using a PowerBreathe Plus Respiratory Trainer now for only three weeks at the time of writing, but already I have seen major improvements in my lung capacity and aerobic fitness. As someone who is very keen on snorkelling (free-diving) and SCU

Good for those with breathing issues-
I've had the medium resistance powerbreathe for 10 weeks now and it has been a game changer for me. Having had a very shallow breathing pattern and poor intercostals, I started right away with the training as prescribed and saw real world results while on

Good exercise for breathing muscles
Tried this from a recommendation, took a few days to get the technique right, at first it didn't seem to work for me, but as soon as I manage to get it right it was very effective. After each session I could feel some of my chest muscles had been stressed

Indispensable training tool?
Until I purchased a POWERbreathe on an experimental basis (out of desperation, really), I did not know how poor my breathing musculature was. It was close to non-existing. Had I chosen to continue my average sedentary middle age life, I would never have k

This is a great product - so long as you use it! It helps to maintain lung function bu building muscle and maintaining lung capacity. This is important because as we get older our lungs decrease in function due to our sedentary lifestyle as we age. How ma

Training Works!
After several months of using this, I have gone from MIP of 50 (less than half of normal for my age) to over 140 cm (above normal for those half my age). The key for me is rigorous use (instead of 2 sets of 30 per day, I do 4-6) and very gradual ramping u

It's great and it sucks
I purchased the red version assuming that years of regular running and cycling would make it quite easy - first mistake. First time out it was like trying to suck through a pane of glass on "3" setting of the 10 point scale. I had to reduce it to level 1.

I got one of these to get back up to fitness after I contracted pneumonia in my right lung a few months back. I probably started training again a bit soon but I never felt quite the same as I was pre illness - higher heart rate and shorter of breath. So I

I had experienced some respiratory restrictions over the years, compounded by a degree of inactivity. Because of this I benefited from the very first session that I used the trainer. I have subsequently been using it for almost 2 months and have found tha

Very helpful training aid.
Have used this for a few months now. Use morning, evening and immediately pre-exercise for 30 breaths. Has definitely improved my breathing judging by how I've moved up the resistance and in my opinion a noticeable difference to my breathing when running

I bought this after achieving the maximum level (level 10) on the Powerbreathe Plus MR (medium resistance). I thought the heavy resistance would start off harder than the max level of the medium but it is easier however it does ramp up from about level 5

Well-built and adjustable as you increase your inhalation strength. If you are in top aerobic strange, by the heavy resistance model, otherwise the medium resistance will be a challenge

Good training aid - but need to use for long term to get the benefit
A good training aid. However, it is difficult to quantify the benefit. The principle of how it will help your breathing is sound. I use it with my turbo training.

Really pushes your lungs to work, great product. You can feel the difference within a week of regular use. Its just a shame I cant seem to get into the habit of using it, but other people are probably more disciplined than me.

At first, when you feel no difference. You think it's rubbish. But stick with, 3-4 weeks you'll notice the difference. You need to have the gauge set - so you are working hard to breathe.
