Stronger breathing muscles allow you to perform at full capacity for longer. Focusing on your breathing muscles, primarily the diaphragm, prolongs the time until they fatigue, prolonging oxygen supply to motor muscles. Stronger breathing muscles enable athletes on all levels to improve their performance in high intensity, as well as in endurance sports.
To work harder, our muscles start requiring more energy than can be produced using oxygen. Our bodies simply cannot supply enough oxygen for such high performance. When this happens, we go into anaerobic exercise - the energy is supplemented by contributions from anaerobic metabolism.
Without oxygen, H2O and CO2 cannot be created. Instead, during anaerobic metabolism, the by-product of energy generation is lactic acid, which breaks into lactate and hydrogen ions. These ions then contribute towards fatigue by interfering with the contractile processes and by changing the pH of the muscle cell.
Airofit improves your Vital Lung Capacity, which is the actual amount of air you can get in and out of your lungs. Stretching your diaphragm and intercostal muscles allows you to decrease the residual volume and increase the amount of usable air. This, of course, is interesting for athletes, as well as patients with lung diseases and asthma.
