The benefits of Respiratory Muscular Training (RMT)

The Basics: What is RMT?

Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) can be simply defined as a system of techniques that aim to improve the function of the respiratory muscles. It typically utilizes a series of specific breath related exercises to increase the strength and endurance of the respiratory muscles and therefore improve respiration as well as postural stability.

In addition to strengthening and bringing flexibility to the respiratory muscles, by engaging in RMT you become acutely aware of your breathing patterns and learn to breathe more consciously and efficiently. Like with all other muscle groups, consistent and intelligent training are key to triggering gains.

As you gain the muscular benefits of RMT you begin to feel the benefits of creating a higher percentage of oxygen in the body that can be transported through the blood to the cellular level thereby energizing the body, relaxing the nervous system and elevating your mood.

How does RMT affect performance?

RMT has traditionally been aimed at people who suffer from asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and COPD. However, it is now becoming more popular amongst athletes who are looking to gain increases in performance whether taking part in sprint, intermittent or endurance sports.

RMT improves sports performance by increasing the strength and stamina of your respiratory system. This allows better oxygen delivery to increase your energy. Your breathing becomes more efficient, requiring less energy, which leaves more energy for the motor muscles to perform at your highest levels.

Vital Lung Capacity (VLC) :

Increasing your vital lung capacity is one way of significantly improving your physical performance quickly and RMT is a great way to see gains here. VLC is the maximum amount of air a person can expel from the lungs (measured in liters) after a maximum inhalation. This is an important measurement to determine a person’s respiratory health and indicate the body's constitution type and functional ability.

Usually, the vital lung capacity is affected by factors like age, gender, and height, and it can be affected by genetics as well. We encourage deep diaphragmatic breathing. If the diaphragm is not working to full capacity, the body starts to use other muscles in the neck, back and chest for breathing. This translates into lower oxygen levels, and less reserve for exercise and activity. More accessible breathing allows more oxygen to enter the bloodstream with each breath while strengthening the respiratory muscles. More oxygen in your system means you can perform longer and preserve more energy. Simply put, it's like increasing your gas tank, which means fewer stops and more progress made.

Airofit PRO helps improve your vital capacity through structured and intelligent training designed by thought leaders in respiratory science. Stretching your diaphragm and intercostal muscles allows you to decrease the residual volume and increase the amount of usable air. This, of course, is interesting for athletes, as well as patients with asthma, COPD and other respiratory issues.

How you can get started with RMT:

  • First it only takes minutes per day, generally between 5-10 minutes.
  • RMT is done as an isolated training. It is not done while doing other exercises and it is accomplished in a relaxed seated position.
  • Using the Airofit Pro, you begin with a lung test measuring your VLC as well as inspiratory and expiratory strength to set a foundational reading.
  • Train with the device consistently on a daily basis utilizing the intelligently created modules in the app which will guide you and track your progress over time.

Benefits of RMT:

  • Improved respiratory strength
      ○ Inspiratory muscles: diaphragm, external intercostals, accessory muscles of neck.
      ○ Expiratory muscles: internal intercostals, abdominals.
  • Increased Lung Capacity
  • Reduces stress. Improves mindfulness and relaxation.
  • Boosted anaerobic threshold.
  • Increased levels of feel-good hormones (like dopamine)
  • Overall improved well-being
  • Improved athletic performance, and many more...

In summary, there are tremendous holistic and athletic benefits that can be gained by getting started with RMT. With Airofit you can have confidence in how you are training while also gaining the ability to validate and track your progress. Start your training today and Stay A Breath Ahead!
