Any professional athlete knows, that having stamina is THE most important thing there is in competition. Throughout my entire Mixed Martial Arts career, I have never ran out of gas. Like they say, you can have a Ferrari, but when you don’t fill it with gas, it won’t drive. The O2Trainer will give you stamina like you have NEVER had before.

How do I do the breathing exercises?
How do I change screens?
Do I need to warm up with or before using the O2Trainer?
I feel the muscles in the center of my back when I use the O2Trainer, is this normal?
This is a good sign and totally normal especially in the first 15 minutes. What you are feeling is the lung muscles being put to work and being filled with lactic acid. This should subside after 15 minutes and if you are still feeling it, you are probably working your lungs too hard. Give your O2 Trainer exercising a break for the day and try again with your next workout or the following day!
I feel my core, is this normal?
This is a very good indication that you are using the O2 Trainer properly, and that you are breathing through your diaphragm, with proper form!
Do I workout every day with the O2Trainer?
Using the unit O2 Trainer 2 to 4 times a week for 30 minutes, during intense conditioning workouts should be enough. You are training your lung and diaphragm muscles and they will be getting a powerful workout; to maximize their strength they do need a chance to rest! To get the most out of any workout routine, you need to take breaks and alternate your areas of focus and let your muscles take a break!
Can I do breathing excersises every day?
Yes you can, since they are much shorter then your normal workouts. Make sure you exhale all the way, and then inhale while using your diaphragm and keep your shoulders relaxed. Focus on your core to “pull” the air in. Four sets of 12 each, with one minute rest in between, will be perfect. Just take the screen that you feel the most comfortable with and train your lungs anywhere you want.
Do I stop when I get dizzy?
Common now, OF COURSE you do! Feeling dizzy is not a normal effect, and is a good indicator that you need to use a lower numbered screen. Don’t push yourself too hard, all of the screens will train your lungs – proper form yields the best results!
How fast do I go down with the screen sizes?
It’s simple – when you can do your workout without “cheating” (getting extra air by opening your mouth around the mouthpiece) and it becomes relatively easy, that is when you are ready to make the switch to the next screen. If you are struggling to get through the workout, you are NOT ready to change screens. Easy does it, take your time and work towards your goal!
Does it matter on wich side I have the inhale and exhale cap?
YES! Make sure the cap with the numbered screen, is on the right side when it is in your mouth, the left side when you are looking at it. The exhale cap should always be on the left side when it is in your mouth and the right side when you are looking at it.
The top of the O2 Trainer is printed with the Jumping Dragon Logo (jumping splits figure).
How do I read my progress?
From day 1 keep a logbook in which you make note of valve screen, training time, intensity, weight, repetitions, average heart rate; what is relevant for you. Within weeks you can read your progress in your own logbook.
Do I use the wipes everytime? How do I clean the O2Trainer?
You only need to use wipes only when you have no water available! If possible rinse thoroughly with warm water. You should always cleanse the unit before storing to keep it fresh and sanitary!
