According to the preliminary research there is a technique known as the Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training (IMST) with the help of which you can now boost the physical performance as well as cognitive performance along with better cardiovascular health. Though we all know that eating right food and doing some exercise every day will keep us healthy, most of us will not follow it on a serious note. You need to put a lot of efforts due to which we might not work out.
There is actually a new technique which has to be followed just for 5 minutes and you will be able to lower the risk of heart attack, improve blood pressure, enhance your sports performance while boost your cognitive ability too. Everything can be achieved by this method without moving from here and there. This technique is known as the Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training or IMST.
Why you need to know about IMST?
This is a process in which you need to inhale through resistive hand held device known as inspiratory muscle trainer. It was primarily created for those who were suffering from various respiratory problems like bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary, cystic fibrosis etc. When it was tested in a group of people for 6 weeks, the participants were asked to perform 30 inhalations each day and it has been observed that their systolic blood pressure was down by 12 millimetres of mercury. Even if you exercise for the same time you might not be able to lower your blood pressure more than half of that.
Boosts cognition and lowers the blood pressure:
When the research was made on those who tried IMST and between those who were using a resistance device for inhalation it has been noticed that people with IMST had lower blood pressures while their arteries were functioning better than before. They were also able to perform better treadmill tests and other cognitive tests. When the treadmill test was performed, they had the ability to run for a longer period of time and still their oxygen consumption and heart rate were at low.
IMST can be done anywhere immediately from your home or office. You can get immediate benefits out of it and best option to reduce the blood pressure. Though it is highly beneficial it’s always better to consult a physician before you try it out. This will also help you to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
