Most of us know that exercising and eating right are good for us.
However, putting in the effort to do so can often require more willpower than we have.
What if there was a way to reap all the benefits of a workout without having to lift a finger?
The technique is called Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training (IMST), and researchers led by Daniel Craighead — a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Integrative Physiology — have tested the technique in a clinical trial.
“IMST is basically strength-training for the muscles you breathe in with,” explains Craighead. The researcher and his colleagues presented the preliminary results of their research at the annual Experimental Biology conference, which this year takes place in Orlando, FL.
