1. Position the nose-clip so that it pushes your nostrils together – can be used without this but this element prevents you from breathing through your nose for better results.
2. Breathe in quickly and forcefully through the POWERbreathe for 30 breaths twice a day – for best results do so in the morning and evening, giving yourself plenty of rest time between sessions.
3. As your inspiratory muscle strength and stamina increase adjust and up the resistance.
Within a few days your inspiratory muscles will feel stronger. Within 3-weeks you’ll feel less breathless. Within 4 weeks activities and training will feel easier.
