In our previous blog, Comparing POWERbreathe Mechanical Series with Electronic Series, we looked at the differences between the POWERbreathe Classic mechanical series and the POWERbreathe Plus mechanical series, and the electronic POWERbreathe K-Series.

 

In this blog we’re going to look at the differences between the mechanical models in the POWERbreathe Classic and POWERbreathe Plus series.

 

As mentioned previously, the POWERbreathe Classic and POWERbreathe Plus each have three models available:

 

  • Level 1 (LR)
  • Level 2 (MR)
  • Level 3 (HR)


LEVEL 1 (LR):


Level 1 trains your breathing muscles using a ‘Light Resistance’ calibrated inspiratory load, or ‘LR’.

 

Level 1 was previously known as the Wellness model.

 

Level 1 is an entry level model for those new to breathing training and for those with breathing problems (e.g. asthma) and features an adjustable variable training load.

 

Load Setting Range


  • POWERbreathe Classic Level 1 (LR) load setting range: 10 – 90 cmH2O
  • POWERbreathe Plus Level 1 (LR) load setting range: 17 – 98 cmH2O


LEVEL 2 (MR):


Level 2 trains your breathing muscles using a ‘Medium Resistance’ calibrated inspiratory load, or ‘MR’.

 

Level 2 was previously known as the Fitness model.

 

Level 2 is for those who are moderately fit to very fit and features an adjustable variable training load.

 

Load Setting Range


  • POWERbreathe Classic Level 2 (MR) load setting range: 10 – 170 cmH2O
  • POWERbreathe Plus Level 2 (MR) load setting range: 23 – 186 cmH2O


LEVEL 3 (HR):


Level 3 trains your breathing muscles using a ‘Heavy Resistance’ calibrated inspiratory load, or ‘HR’.

 

Level 3 was previously known as the Sports Performance model.

 

Level 3 is only for those who have reached the maximum loading on a Level 2model.

 

Load Setting Range


  • POWERbreathe Classic Level 3 (HR) load setting range: 10 – 250 cmH2O
  • POWERbreathe Plus Level 3 (HR) load setting range: 29 – 274 cmH2O
