Thoracic Load Carriage & Inspiratory Muscle Training

Research Paper Title Respiratory Effects of Thoracic Load Carriage Exercise and Inspiratory Muscle Training as a Strategy to Optimize Respiratory Muscle Performance with Load Carriage. Abstract Many occupational and recreational settings require the use of protective and/or load-bearing apparatuses worn over the thoracic cavity, known as thoracic load carriage (LC). Compared to normal, unloaded exercise,… Read More

Does Inspiratory Muscle Training Improve Exercise Capacity with Thoracic Load Carriage?

Research Paper Title Inspiratory muscle training improves exercise capacity with thoracic load carriage. Background Thoracic load carriage (LC) exercise impairs exercise performance compared to unloaded exercise, partially due to impaired respiratory mechanics. The researchers investigated the effects of LC on exercise and diaphragmatic fatigue in a constant-load exercise task; and whether inspiratory muscle training (IMT)… Read More
