Anyone convinced by this product???

Good question. I'd considered buying one. Anyone use one?

I am a mild Asthmatic, I've been using Powerbreathe for a couple of weeks. I think it's doing me some good but it's early days.

Anyone else used it with positive results????

Someone must be using one

I have used the PowerBreathe for about 3 months now and I have quickly increased the level on it. How that translates into better performances over time is difficult to judge however I do find that if I use directly before I go running it makes a big difference with my breathing.

I do think that it is overpriced at £50 though.

Yes but so much easier than speed sessions.

What exactly is it?

A device you breathe into to supposedly train the lungs???

Yes me have one, and Im finding it a very good piece of equipment,use it AM and PM 30 breaths each time, and it can be hard work, depending on the level you have it set on.

I have also used it as a warm up device, to get the lungs going before a cold morning.

Since having the power breathe I have found my breathing to be alot easier.

Is it all in the mind........probably, but im happy with the product and I will continue to use it.

Do you use it whilst running I wonder ?
13/11/2002 at 11:17
No before

I've just ordered one of these today - wife and daughter both have mild asthma - and I thought it may help with my running. Will keep you posted.

Wouldn't blowing balloons up be almost as good ?

(if not better - cheaper, plus you get balloons to play with ?)

Too cheap and not gadget therefore has less appeal.

So, what's the conclusion? Does powerbreathe suck?

Sorry, couldn't resist the obvious gag.

I used one over the summer when I was a guinea pig for a phd student looking at inspiritory muscle strength in endurance cyclists and I definately want one for Christmas! They ain't cheap though -which I guess stops everyone using one and therefore giving you no advantage ;-)

I think i am convinced and obviously want an easier way to run faster than doing all the training I keep missing
20/11/2002 at 21:00
I have just ordered one but have yet to recieve it. Surely you still need to do the speed training aswell? I thought it would create speed training easier and therefore you would be able to speed up until it hurts like before using it etc. I am hoping to see a difference in my PB's.
(A big difference for 50 quid)

Of course you would really but i am an optomist and a gadget freak
