Sooooo ... who's getting one when it's out?

EDIT: Link sometimes does not work. Go to https://www.basrutten.com/hex/news and click on article "WARRIOR WISDOM | TO BREATHE OR REBREATHE THAT IS THE QUESTION?"

Interesting.

Some people have said that they used straws to get the same effect. I tried it, and it was absolutely horrible. Uncomfortable, and I couldn't help drooling all over the place.

I've used a face mask (for dust) often. That works pretty well.

The theory behind it makes sense. I'll try it.

Nothing new. Concept has been around for a while. Bas is probably paying a royalty for the patent. Or will get sued for infringement.

Unlike Bas's, you can dial-in your adjustments on this one instead of having 20 different levels or whatever his does.

Difference is, the Expand-a-Lung is supposed to be used before not during your workouts.

for a doctor, there's a whole lot of misinformation in that article when it comes to CO2, O2, and hypercapnea.

And it's nothing more than one more subjective opinion.
