The 2014 World Cup has made history as the 136 goals scored during the Group Stage has been the most goals scored since 1958. Despite being some of the most mentally and physically prepared athletes in the world, this record setting World Cup has had a huge impact on the athletes. From official water breaks to athletes subbing out for cramps and exhaustion, we’ve seen these elite athletes breaking down in front of our eyes. Is it possible that these athletes aren’t training all of their muscles as effectively as possible?

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.

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. It takes strength, endurance, and skill to train for track and field events. Many runners fail to realize the importance of breathing technique and rhythm. Breathing should not limit your ability to run or perform running routines. Are you using proper breathing methods as you run towards the finish line?

How to Build Your Cycling Energy and Endurance

As a cyclist, have you ever been in the middle of a hike, race or a simple ride around the neighborhood, when you realize that respiratory fatigue has hit your body?  While your mind is on cycling, your breathing becomes shallow, you have trouble getting deep breaths, and your muscles feel on fire.  This will result in a decrease in bike speed, which could lead you to lose the race, delay your hike or make you just want to walk back home.  In a race scenario, after spending months and even years training your endurance, you shouldn’t let respiratory fatigue take you out of the race.  During training, cyclists often overlook the importance of breath training and respiratory fitness. What could respiratory muscle training do for your cycling endurance and performance?

The PowerLung makes for an excellent choice for your Christmas shopping! You can rest assured that you are literally giving the gift of good health. The PowerLung is rather unique in that instead of using flow restriction – similar to breathing through various sized straws – we utilize a pressure threshold approach. Pressure threshold is akin to strength training. Just as your arms or legs have vital muscle groups, so do your lungs – and that’s what PowerLung aims to strengthen.

As a mountain biker, you spend hours training and racing at high altitudes and through difficult terrain. Your journey to the top of a peak is physically and mentally demanding, but well worth it once you reach the top. The tremendous energy and endurance level you need to cycle up climbs, attempt blasts, change speeds, and race in the mountains is unparallel to many other sports. Biking through mountain terrain is challenging, and you need to train properly. Training for mountain biking goes beyond aerobic and cardio workouts. Learning how to breath right is the factor that takes you from being subpar to superior as a mountain biker.
