Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training (IMST)

Mon Jan 24, 2022 2:58 pm

I am trying this exercise using an MR 12 second stage disconnected from the first. I take blood pressure medication and will see if it reduces my BP. It also might be good off season training to keep the breathing muscles in shape.

Well if nothing else, by the time you're done training you should be able to get that last bit of air out of your empty tank.

Hi again Tom,

I hope your method of drawing air through a regulator works out. I've looked at the article in the link & the video and nowhere does it mention how one can obtain one of these devices.

Again, please keep us updated on your findings.
