Improve your performance with Powerlung
Improve your performance with Powerlung All of us know that feeling of difficulty breathing during long intense efforts. Climbing up a long steep grade, for example, can leave many of us riders feeling breathless at the top. For years I have looked for ways to increase my lung capacity and endurance. I have tried many breathing exercises and they have all helped to an extent. And then I got my hands on the PowerLung, a device that claims it can increase lung capacity and oxygen intake by more than 25%! That is an overwhelming percentage, definitely one that would be noticed by it's users. I had to try it out.

I have had the PowerLung system for almost a year now; though I must confess that I have not been using it as consistently as I intended to. But I have been using it more frequently for the past few weeks and have already noticed some improvement. Not necessarily on the bike improvement but breathing in general. Everyday after doing the recommended workout with the PowerLung, I have noticed an immediate increase in energy, which lasted for hours. I also noticed that I felt more relaxed through out the day, which comes to no surprise since deep breathing has been proved to help reduce stress and lower resting heart rate and blood pressure.

As for my performance on the bike; I have not noticed any dramatic improvements accept for the fact that I have more energy during my long distance rides. I have yet to test myself on some tough climbs, however, anyone is welcome to join me on a ride up one of the canyons along the Wasatch front this weekend.

I must give out a precaution to those considering the PowerLung. There are four different PowerLung models, which have different levels of resistance. I have the Sport model, or the blue model, which has the highest level of adjustable resistance. When I first got the Sport, I almost wished I had gone a step down, because even on the very lowest setting I could barely get through one set of the PowerLung workout. So unless you are an elite athlete, stick with one of the other three models: the Trainer, the BreatheAir, or the AireStream model.
