Experimental: Inspiratory muscle strength training
Using a handheld device, subjects were perform 30 breaths a day, six days a week. The device produces resistance that increases the effort of breathing in. The resistance to breathing will be strong.
Other: Inspiratory muscle strength training
Subjects will perform inspiratory muscle strength training for 6 weeks.
Sham Comparator: Sham training
Using a handheld device, subjects were perform 30 breaths a day, six days a week. The device produces resistance that increases the effort of breathing in. The resistance to breathing will be weak.
Other: Sham training
Subjects will perform sham training for 6 weeks.
