Thomas Lurz is an open water swimmer, 12 time world champion and 2012 olympic silver medallist. He has also started training with the POWERBREATHER.
Here is what he has to say:
For me the POWERBREATHER is the ideal training tool to improve my technique and, at the same time, increase my lung volume. Design, fitting accuracy and functionality are unique in swimming. With each breathing in you always get fresh air and not expended air as with conventional snorkels. As an additional training variation I can now reduce the air supply step by step for the first time in order to simulate tougher conditions. I am really enthusiastic about that.
The POWERBREATHER is a great asset for me, whether I train professionally or simply watch fish in the sea and relax. I can strongly recommend it to every high performance or hobby athlete as a genial – and in particular – better alternative to conventional snorkels.
