 Re: Seniors Only: Have you lost lung power?
Author: JEG 2017

I'm a little late to this party as I'm still working at 69, but today I'm home.

My question to the question is - are we describing lung power only, lung capacity, or both?

I've noticed on and off that my lung capacity seems to be decreasing, only to discover a leak or two in my embouchure. Once I get that straightened out my capacity seems to be back to almost what it was when I was playing baritone saxophone.

As others have described here, exercises can be useful. After all, if you have trouble expanding your chest cavity (please forgive my very general terminology) you won't be able to take deep breaths.

I would think that power is related to capacity but we all have different strength capabilities. In that regard I don't feel any decline as of yet, and I play quite a bit of bass clarinet.

I agree that if you are in good health you should be able to improve your power and capacity
