The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on exercise in hypoxia (H) and normoxia (N). A 4-week IMT program was implemented with 12 healthy subjects using an inspiratory muscle trainer set at either 15% (C; n=5) or 50% (IMT; n=7) maximal inspiratory mouth pressure (PImax). Two treadmill tests (85% VO2max) to exhaustion and measures of diaphragm thickness (Tdi) and function were completed before and after training in H and N. Significant… CONTINUE READING
