IMPROVE your Performance by over 12% at QUA NUTRITION CLINIC


British rower Pete Reed has the largest lung capacity ever recorded: 11.68 litres. To put that in some perspective, Lance Armstrong’s capacity is seven litres.

If you want to improve your athletic speed and endurance, you need to develop your lung capacity and breathing. This will enable you to run more efficiently and with less effort, which in turn should make you faster and motivate you to continue running.
To breathe properly, you should inhale fully, allowing your belly to relax so it can move outward and your diaphragm can expand. Then you should exhale fully, allowing your belly to retract toward your spine.

Foods that may boost Lung Capacity
In one study, published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, researchers recruited forty male wrestlers. The wrestlers were divided into four groups. One group supplemented with 1,000 milligrams of omega-3 and participated in exercise training. A second group received exercise training and a placebo pill, while a third group received an omega-3 supplement without any training. A fourth got only a placebo pill.

When they tested the lung function of each group of wrestlers, the group that received the omega-3 supplement with exercise training showed improvements in their exercise lung function - including an increase in lung volume and total lung capacity. It seems that taking omega-3 supplements could be a boon for exercising athletes and anyone else who works out aerobically.

When working on the Guinness world record of NON-STOP AEROBICS of 26 hours, I had to use elements of nutrition to enhance Oxygen carrying capacity of the athlete. Today I am using the Powerbreathe to measure an athletes vital capacity and take it to the next level with lung training and proper nutrition.  Read the Scientific study on one year lung training and how it improved competition success in a group of atheltes.
