The Art and Science of Breathing Revealed
Master this Foundation of Health…and also Relaxation, Strength, Endurance, Flexibility and Subconscious Control with this Encyclopedia of Breathing Exercises
(Plus How to Improve Your Air Quality Too!)
Did you know that your lung’s vital capacity is one of the best predictors there is for death and illness?
And like hormones and other aspects of aging, it naturally goes down as you age…unless you DO something about it.
Breathing is 100% Free… and your health really doesn’t get any more fundamental than air.
More important than what you eat…
More important than sleep…
More important than water…
Simply by the fact that you can’t survive without air for far less time than all of those things.
Yet few people pay it the attention it deserves simply because they think, “I already breathe, therefore I know everything I need to know about it.”
Don’t be so ignorant!
As you’ll come to find, when you truly know “how to breathe” you do much more than survive and even be healthy…
In this guide you’ll find more detail on all aspects of breathing than anywhere else. (I know because I looked.)

Here’s what others are saying…
“Wow, just what I was looking for and very good quality reference book. Logan did an EXCELLENT job with this book! I got the paper copy and am so glad I did. It’s really nice and will be great to highlight and take notes in. I’ve been looking around for strategies for breathing for strength endurance activities like some of the Cross Fit workouts I do. This book is EXTENSIVE in that it has seven sections on types of breathing applications. It has given me several breathing strategies for strength endurance and will be a reference for me for other types too. It is a highly practical reference.” -Michael Corrales
“I purchased Upgrade Your Breath just before taking a vacation. Read it through and found a couple of interesting exercises that I tried on the spot. First thing I thought was, ‘Cool, I can teach these to my senior fitness class. They will love them!’ One in particular in which you focus on breathing into different parts of your torso — lower, middle, and upper — really caught my attention. What an awesome way to create greater awareness of your body! I also found a great one for increasing lung capacity which translated really well to improving my tone while playing my saxophone. I shared that one with another musician friend of mine and he loved it. I realize Logan was probably not thinking of musicians when he put this book together but I guess that shows this book can be of great value to pretty much anyone. Just that one exercise was worth the price of the book. I couldn’t recommend this book more highly!” -Bill Kociaba
“Upgrade Your Breath is a fitness masterpiece product. The information in this ebook is so complete and difficult to find anywhere else, even though I have learned about breathing techniques several years ago. Good job!” -Mohamad
“Just finishing the read on upgrade your breath… It’s awesome and am teaching it to my customers/patients that I talk to in my pharmacy as a means to relax, unwind and lesson their anxiety. It’s totally helped me and my close friends.” -Scott Porter
“I’m a practicing Physical Culturist and this is one of the best books of its kind. A must have.” – Hoby Hittson
“Probably the most comprehensive book about breathing and different breathing techniques out there. Logan is a lifelong student of health and whatever topic he sinks his teeth into he goes in depth on. This book is no different, He lays out all of the most popular breathing techniques out there. He explains the mechanisms behind each of them and what they can do for you/areas they will help the most with. I’m very interested in breath work and have read most of the major books on it, but this is by far the most comprehensive and simplest. There’s no excess information of lots of repetition of the same concepts or ideas. Logan finds the unique and helpful in each practice, teaches you how to perform it and then moves on. And for anyone just starting out don’t be overwhelmed, Logan breaks down where to start, how to bring more awareness to your breath and the exercises you should start with. He even helps you build your own “breath work” daily workout. Truly a great resource for anyone interesting in improving there health in the most basic and primal way.” – Jake Tee
“Your book on breathing is one of the best health pieces I have read.” -Paul C.
