Achieving your goals always boost your motivation. In order to win you need energy, will, and motivation that will drive you to the best results. While will and motivation depend on you, the energy you will consume to win can be decreased. However, it is possible only when you breathe in the right way.
Improving your respiratory strength can let you increase the amount of oxygen inhaled in a given period, that will result in a decrease in energy consumption.
The process of ventilation between air and blood occurs through neurological control of the respiratory muscles. Muscles related to respiration may be divided into inspiratory and expiratory muscles. Major muscles engaging in inspiration include the diaphragm and external intercostal muscle, and minor muscles engaging in inspiration encompass the sternocleidomastoid muscle, scalene muscle, trapezius muscle, pectoralis major muscle, pectoralis minor muscle, and serratus anterior muscle. These muscles act during forced expiration. Expiratory muscles that do not act in normal respiration but do act in strong respiration include the rectus abdominis muscle, musculus transversus abdominis, external/internal oblique abdominal muscle, and internal intercostal muscle. The weakening of the respiratory system muscles is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and these muscles play a role in reducing the pressure of the lower abdomen during respiration
On the other hand, there is a respiratory muscle strength training (RMST), that focuses on increasing the force-generating capacity of the inspiratory and expiratory muscles. The choice of respiratory muscles that are targeted using RMST depends on the outcome desired. For example, if an individual has reduced inspiratory muscle strength due to a neurogenic injury and is unable to ventilate the lungs, then inspiratory muscle strength training may be the chosen rehabilitation target.
Research has shown, that respiratory muscle training strengthens the respiratory muscles and improves your ability to perform different activities. Respiratory Muscle Training can be defined as a technique that aims to improve the function of the respiratory muscles through specific exercises. It consists of a series of exercises, breathing and others, to increase strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles and therefore improve respiration.
RMT is normally aimed at people who suffer from asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and COPD. However, many people adopt RMT as part of their sports training as this training is designed to strengthen the muscles used for breathing. Studies have shown that regular RMT can increase a person’s endurance during cardiovascular exercise or sports activities such as running and cycling.
With our breathing trainer, you will strengthen your respiratory muscles and improve your breathing, which will result in a bigger amount of oxygen inhaled in a certain period and reduced energy consumption.
