Do any of you guys do any kind of breathing training to improve your power?

I really haven't, tbh. My dad showed me how he shot a blowgun though, which was to place your tongue over the hole of the mouth piece, blow, then move your tongue, so the air is forced out at once. I have always used this method. I can easily put a dart through a soda can from about 20 feet. Not saying this is an amazing feat, just that I can.

A good exercise is to inhale and hold for a count of five then for forcefully exhale and continue even when it seems you are done.You may even get a wheezing noise.The lungs are pliable and will stretch out even in just one session of doing this. Not to mentioned this is good for overall health and fitness especially if you smoke.

I do not personally use the tounge technique. However I have found that practicing the blowgun has increased my power and breathing. I read an article that linked blowgun use to overall good health. I will have to dig it up.

I'm a Qigong (chinese breathing exercises) practitioner, and find that it helps a lot with breath control, pushing from diaphragm, and importantly to blow with force yet control upper body movement. :) -Restita Sent via Tapatalk 2

Playing Alto sax in a jazz band does it for me. :D
