In the original publication, the training intervention was incorrectly reported as occurring 5 days/wk. The participants in both groups actually trained 7 days/wk. The authors affirm that this reporting error did not affect the conclusions presented in the study. The list of corrections, each indicated in boldface, is shown below: On p. 449, in the ABSTRACT, the fourth sentence should read as follows: "Subjects in both groups trained at home completing 30 training breaths/day, 7 days/wk for 6 wk." On p. 449, in the INTRODUCTION, the final sentence of the third paragraph should read as follows: "These outcomes are of interest and importance because in each case they were attained within 6 wk and with a training requirement of just 5 min/day for 7 days/wk or 35 min/wk total training time." On p. 452, in METHODS, subsection 6-wk Intervention, second paragraph, the first sentence should read as follows: "Subjects in both groups trained independently at home completing 30 breaths i.e., 5 sets of 6 breaths with a∼1- to 2-min rest between each set, 7 days/wk for 6 wk on the POWERbreathe device (K3 series,Warwickshire, UK)." On p. 455, in the DISCUSSION, subsection Strengths and Limitations, fourth paragraph, the second sentence should read as follows: "Whereas participants in both groups trained on the same handheld pressure-threshold training device, followed the same training regimen (i.e., 30 breaths day for 7 days/wk for 6 wk), and attended weekly laboratory visits and reassessments, all visits were coordinated to preclude participant overlap to insure participant blinding to high-intensity IMST versus control intervention formats".
