Some people believe that breathing with PowerLung while you train will speed up your training progress. However, PowerLung is not an “overnight fix.” Overtraining and over working your muscles leads to muscle pain and injuries. A gradual integration of PowerLung into your training program will help you build up strength and endurance. Building the intensity of your training program allows your body to adapt and move forward without injury.
The Starting Line
PowerLung muscle training is pure and simple. It uses progressive threshold resistance to strengthen the muscles and to train them to breathe in a certain manner. Training with PowerLung, as with any muscle training, takes time. During the first four weeks, muscles learn to do the exercise and to improve strength and endurance. Doing more in the first four weeks than the PowerLung instructions outlined is equivalent to lifting weights too often with your strength-training program. You may risk overstraining and issues that accompany sore muscles.
