1. I have asthma. Will PowerLung help improve my lungs with this condition?

PowerLung is a fitness training machine designed to allow isolated training of the muscles used in breathing for both inhale and exhale. The muscles it is designed to train are: the diaphragm, the intercostals and the accessory muscles. PowerLung is a product designed to be used for exercise only and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. There have been studies done on asthmatics using a similar protocol but for inhale only. In those studies, the treatment group experienced a reduction in the number and severity of their attacks. While PowerLung itself has not been specifically tested on asthmatics, many of our customers have advised us of similar results in their lives after using the PowerLung. You should always consult your personal physician.

2. Is PowerLung good for emphysema, COPD, or any other condition of weakened lungs?

PowerLung is a fitness training machine designed to allow isolated training of the muscles used in breathing for both inhale and exhale. The muscles it is designed to train are: the diaphragm, the intercostals, and the accessory muscles. PowerLung is a product designed be used for exercise only and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. You should always consult your personal physician.

3. Exercising increases respiration: Why do I need a "breathing workout?"

It is important for better total performance and enjoyment of activities to strengthen and train your breathing muscles independently of other muscle groups. During exercise, your breathing muscles respond to increased oxygen requirements and may become more aerobically conditioned, but exercise does not strength train them to give hem more strength, power, or endurance. Strength trained breathing muscles can help prevent or relieve respiratory muscle fatigue or maximization during exercise.

4. Do I need to train both my inspiratory (inhale) and expiratory (exhale) muscle groups?

Yes, it is beneficial to train both. Inspiratory to increase volume and expiratory to expel a greater volume of carbon dioxide.

5. What causes me to run out of breath at the end of a race?

This occurs when your muscles, including the muscles surrounding your lungs, are tired and fatigued. Training with PowerLung can strengthen your lung muscles. Trained lung muscles have a higher endurance level and can result in better performance and race time.

6. What is the difference in flow resistance training and threshold resistance training?

Flow resistance training is to repetitiously restrict the volume of air flow. It is an approach that was designed to exercise, but not strengthen breathing muscles.

Isolated threshold resistance training, like weight training, is a work load program with incremental increases as the muscles strengthen. This is true training, not just conditioning, and is the only methods used by PowerLung.

It is like breathing through a series of drinking straws that decrease in size. Many less expensive exercisers use this approach.

7. Can using PowerLung help with my snoring?

PowerLung strength trains your breathing muscles including those in your throat.
