    Probably, in addition to rapid breathing, like hyper ventilation, but it is kind of dangerous to do, IMO. But, making it hard to breath is actually cutting off oxygen to the muscles, making it difficult to get oxygenated blood to the muscles you are trying to work out. I don't really know, but it sounds plausible to make it hard to breathe to work them out, but to what real benefit?

    Here did not feel like typing it all again but here this may clear a few things up.

    I didn't mean suffocatingly hard to breath :rolleyes:

    Yeah I knew you meant like restricting the movement of the chest in order to strengthen the breathing capacity. It is still dangerous to do as well. I knew you didn't mean suffocating. When you restrict the muscle movement you restrict the blood flow as well, it is a double edge sword trying to work those muscles.

    Just breathing properly is better in all cases.

    No that's not what I meant at all. As I previously mention some athletes use a tube with a fan attached that makes it harder to breath. Meaning they need to work harder for every breath.

    Oh, I see that might work.
