Resistance Cell Set

If you have reached the maximum on your current PowerLung then congratulations, you are progressing well. Fortunately, there are two ways to continue your development and go forward from here. The first is to adjust your routine and the second is to add new resistance cells.

About PowerLung

PowerLung was invented by Mr. Barry Jarvis after the effects of a heart attack left the historically active athlete struggling to breathe. Unable to take part in his varied athletic pursuits due to the difficulties breathing now presented, and advised by multiple physicians to sit down and take it easy, he felt discouraged. Not one to give up, Jarvis researched and found a gap in available respiratory training products. Extensive research presented a solution, and the design and development process began.

From this journey, the PowerLung was born. It uses threshold resistance – a method of training used only by PowerLung – to train your respiratory muscles to make them stronger and more efficient. It has helped everyone from musicians to professional athletes to those interested in active aging breathe better and more efficiently. Let PowerLung help you breathe better.

Sprinting. People either hate it or they love it. When coaches require their players to sprint, they hate it. When runners, cyclists or swimmers sprint to the finish line, they love it. Sprinting really depends on when you do it and why you do it. Many joggers use a sprint to finish their run, while sprinting for some athletes, like soccer players or swimmers, is just part of the game or competition. The goal behind sprinting, however, should be to push your body to new exercise or athletic levels, not to overextend it.

Scuba Diving Training PowerLung

Scuba diving opens your eyes to a whole new world and is an immensely rewarding adventure. However, for the novice diver a lack of experience and scuba technique can prevent you from fully enjoying the dive. Some of the most common problems faced include not adapting well to the changes in pressure, confusion in water or even weak swimming skills. Nevertheless, far and by the most important factor that can influence a novice diver’s experience is breath control while diving. Rapid or shallow breathing will reduce the amount of time you get to enjoy your dive because you reach the maximum amount of time per tank more quickly. There are various factors that influence the divers breathing, notably nerves, technique and respiratory health. Nerves will calm with experience whilst technique and respiratory strength can be improved through training. To condition your lungs for a better diving experience you should consider breathing exercises and respiratory muscle training devices.

Breathing is a body function of everyday life that most people take for granted. Without the ability to breathe, we could not stay alive. Athletes understand the importance of proper breathing for training and fitness routines.  How can you improve your breathing? Resistance training is the key. Working your muscles against resistance strengthens them over time. There are two distinct methods of resistance training: Progressive Threshold Resistance and Restrictive Resistance. So, what are the main differences between them?

Competitive Swimming PowerLung Better Breathing

There is no greater demand placed upon your lungs than in competitive swimming. The constant motion of every inch of your body requires the constant dispersing of oxygen to every part. The pull and drag of the body that comes with swimming makes it obvious that without stellar respiratory strength, you will be pulling up the backend in whatever swimming competition you find yourself in. When swimming, you must utilize your breathing wisely and create a breathing technique that supplies enough oxygen to your extremities, but also keeps your heart at a steady rate.

Better Breathing Track and Field PowerLung

Track and field athletes run thousands of miles in their careers. The end goal of every race, every competition, is to make it past the finish line faster than every other runner on the field.

For many serious athletes, exercise is an enjoyable, yet addictive, activity. Exercise enthusiasts can attest to the rush of energy and excitement they feel during fitness and athletic routines.
