Resistance Training for your Breathing Muscles

Resistance Training for your Breathing Muscles
POWERbreathe
Want to ski longer without losing your breath? A recent study says breathing exercises can improve your performance.

We lift weights for increased strength and endurance, but when was the last time your diaphragm lifted a dumbbell?

That’s right: Training your inspiratory muscles, including your diaphragm and intercostal muscles, can benefit your overall fitness and prepare you for high-altitude breathing this ski season.

Kangchenjunga Ski Expedition Update 5

Fredrick Ericsson and Jorgen Aamot wait on the weather to summit Kangchenjunga.

Base Camp Life

At the moment we are stuck in base camp and all we can do is to wait for the weather to change. I’m getting a bit of déjà vu from last year on Dhaulagiri. Acclimatization climbs passed by without any problems but as soon as I‘m ready for the summit the weather changes totally. Last year it was a week of snowfall that stopped me, this year the jet stream has taken over the mountain. For about a week now it’s been around 90 km/h wind up on 8000 meters and that is no place for us to be in those conditions.
