    In case you didn't watch ep. 5 of Overeems "the reems" documentary ( THE REEM EPISODE 5: CHANGE OF PLANS on Vimeo ) Rutten pops by and talks about this new thing he developed and patented and about to release in 6 weeks. He says it's for training your lungs (?) and kinda shows it to the camera but I can't tell what it is or what it does.

    kinda curious, i haven't heard of any method of directly training your lungs...

    Ask anyone who has sang in a high level choir or performed in a full size theater without mics, a person can definitely train their lungs.

    I'm really interested to see how this could be applied to fighting, but I think good control of your diaphragm might help keep you from gassing.

    Lungs aren't muscles... He probably didn't mean it that literally. Also, Bas's last "invention" wasn't all that amazing.

    I had thorasic surgery and when I was in recovery they gave me this thing will balls in it that I needed to blow into to keep them elevated which was for lung strength. I'll bet one of those would be alot cheaper

    yea, i used the same thing while in the hospital. you blew into it until the ball got to the top, than you would hold it for as long as you could. It was pretty cool.

    All you have to do is blow balloons to strengthen them.

    I remember that from Pokemon.

    this sort of thing has been around for ever, i even remember this one time on wildboyz i think it was they were in india and they found a local sort of magician character. To make a long story short he blew up a thick red rubber...those things you fill with hot water to keep you warm. I dont think anyone could do that without alot of practice

    Get an index card, stand 6" from a wall facing it, hold the card against the wall, blow on the card and remove your hand. Keep it in place as long as you can. There are a lot of other free exercises to increase your lung capacity as well.

    make a fist and blow into it (thumb/index side) with pressure

    the lungs are not muscles. the diaphragm and intercostals are the muscles associated with breathing.

    incentive spirometry

    helps you keep your alveoli expanded to prevent collapse (atelactasis) and possible subsequent infection

    wouldnt have much benefit in a healthy person i wouldnt think
