The POWERbreathe Lung Exerciser is like a “dumbell for your lungs”. It is a resistance training tool that strengthens your inspiratory muscles – the muscles that you use for breathing in when you inhale. This is an aspect of fitness that is neglected by most exercise regimes.

It resembles a large asthma inhaler – two coloured plastic cylinders stuck together at a 90 degree angle, with a removable mouth piece and cover for the handle. A knob at the bottom of the handle is used to adjust the resistance level between 1 and 9. It is light, but sturdy and is easy to clean.

The recommended exercise is to do two sets of 30 breaths through the POWERbreathe twice a day, preferably before training or exercising. You should set the resistance so that you are just able to complete each set of breaths. They say that you can expect to see results within 4 weeks.
