Breathing Better for Endurance Performance | #23 ft. Luke Way and Dr. Andrew Sellars

Listen on your favorite platform or watch on youtube!


In this episode, I am joined by Luke Way and Dr. Andrew Sellers to discuss respiratory muscle training and the Breatheway device. We explore the importance of training the respiratory system and how it can impact performance. We also discuss the limitations of the respiratory system and how respiratory muscle training can help overcome them. Overall, we provide valuable insights into the importance of respiratory muscle training for optimizing athletic potential.


1) Respiratory muscle training is an important aspect of optimizing athletic performance.

2) The respiratory system can be a limiting factor in performance, and training the respiratory muscles can help overcome these limitations.

3) Slow, deep breathing can have a positive impact on heart rate and overall performance.

4) Assessments such as spirometry and VO2 testing can determine the need for respiratory training.

5) Functional power and total volume are important factors to consider in respiratory assessments.
