Is this possible? (kitchen science)

Can you resistance-train your diaphram muscles?
You probably can, but you've got to be careful with that kind of thing, lungs don't take high pressures very well- they can actually rupture, even some musical instrument players have been known to have problems with that kind of thing, although they don't usually die, they can get leaks of air into their chest; and blowing up water bottles is actually pretty dangerous.

FWIW I used my lungs, not just my mouth to blow, I don't think you'd get a good strong jet with just your mouth.

*Bravely putting head above table*

Reading "lungs don't take high pressures very well"

That's probably why it's a lovely lady doing it Mr Wolfekeeper.
As we all can see, their lungs are so much more, than us mere mens.
We just can't reach those aesthetic heights of delightful proportions.

*Most astutely hiding under that same table, just before the pie lands*
