Increase Your Lung Size!

I was reading a copy of Men’s Health Magazine the other day ( standard reading in this industry) and on Page 35 of the May issue there is an article called Deep End Training and it’s about increasing your breathing efficiency. I was deeply interested in this because it was through trying to train for a sprint triathlon I discovered I had cancer. It took three months to discover I had a tumour in my intestines and only had 50% red blood cells, which prevented my lungs from expanding.

What was weird was that the only symptom was acute breathlessness in the pool, on the bike,running and in the gym, nothing in my intestines was bothering me.  What I did’nt realise was that I was slowly dying by losing blood that was passing unseen from my body.

To cut a long story short ( no pun intended, i can tell it all another day) I had an operation called a right hemi-colectomy, which is the removal of about two and half feet ( about 76 centimetres) of colon.

Now what has this got to do with breathing? Well a lot actually..

John Chapman and Leon Bustin

John Chapman & Leon Bustin are personal trainers, Nutritionists and YouTube sensations.

With over 200,000 subscribers and 9 million views these two best friends are showing that getting healthy, fit & in great shape can be fun!

The boys have been featured in such papers and magazines as The Observer, The Sun, The Evening standard, NOW magazine, The Eastern daily press & have also been quoted as kings of nutrition in a feature by Men’s Fitness.

“Our aim is to help as many people as possible get healthy and understand that getting in great shape and being healthy doesn’t have to be hard or depressing, it’s not a restriction it’s a choice with endless options. There is so much conflicting advice out there that people are just really confused, when often all they need is a bit of encouragment to tell them what they are doing is great. They just need some support, some ideas and more knowledge that’s easy to digest and watchable, which is where our boyish humour comes into play”

I came across these to chaps while reading a magazine and quickly looked at their YouTube site and believe me it’s worth watching just for the fun of it. There are so many characters in this industry and these two certainly are characters. Just watch, with hundreds of videos and almost a quarter of a million subscribers, they are worth some time- Editor
