I don't think it has anything to do with muscles; most of these devices are about increasing capacity, getting the body accustomed to moving all that air, and/or learning to regulate the spending of the air. AJ liked to isolate & develop air concept w/out distraction from the horn, cuz we can't truly think about breathing and playing at the same time. Ask folks who've attended a Pat Sheridan masterclass.
That's my take,
