Have You Exercised Your Lungs Today?
The Expand-A-Lung Breathing Resistance Exerciser has been selected as the top choice for respiratory fitness training by the L.A. Times. Jorge Brouwer, inventor of the most compact (4-inches) breathing exerciser, manufactures and markets the easy to use "Expand-A-Lung."
When asked about how his product's success, Mr. Brouwer said, "We're finally creating awareness about the importance of respiratory fitness training for athletes and people who suffer from shortness of breath due to respiratory problems such as COPD. This exercise works the muscles involved in the breathing process (the diaphragm and intercostals muscles), and allows you to breath in more volume of air/oxygen deeper into your lungs. It also helps you to expulse more carbon dioxide out of your lungs. The end result is deeper, easier and better breathing inhaling and exhaling (100% drug free)."
"Research supports that the condition of the respiratory system is very important for endurance sports, and that respiratory fitness training can improve performance significantly in competitive athletes. Furthermore, it can also be extremely efficient as an integral part of a pulmonary rehabilitation program for COPD patients."
"In the past, this type of exercise was only available with bulky equipment in respiratory care facilities. The Expand-A-Lung's size (4-inches) provides the portability to take it and use it anywhere. This is the feature that made it popular among athletes who most frequently use it outdoors."
