Training masks do not simulate altitude


Training masks do not simulate altitude

“ELEVATION” MASKS VS. HYPOXICO ALTITUDE TRAINING MASK SYSTEM There are many confusing training masks on the market for athletes. Some are advertised as “altitude” masks and some as “elevation” masks. But do they increase your red blood cell count like you are expecting them to? IN SHORT, THEY WILL NOT. Training at a high altitude is associated with two key environmental factors. First, a reduced partial pressure of oxygen (hypobaria). The second is a reduced...

Hypoxico sponsors Leadville trail 100 mile run


Hypoxico sponsors Leadville trail 100 mile run

For the last several years, the days and weeks after the Leadville 100 mile ride and runs are some of the busiest of the year for us at Hypoxico. Not only are we in communication with our clients who’ve taken on the challenges, but we also receive dozens of calls and emails from people who didn’t use our equipment or sufficiently acclimatize to altitude and who are thus disappointedly looking for solutions for another future attempt. Racing at 10,000 feet above sea-level is a hugely demanding...

Hypoxico altitude to oxygen chart


This oxygen chart extrapolates the effective amount of oxygen percentages to real altitude. At real altitude, the barometric pressure of the atmosphere is significantly less than that of sea-level environments. The result is that oxygen molecules in the air are further apart, reducing the oxygen content of each breath incrementally as one goes up in altitude. The reduction of oxygen availability in the air thus reduces the oxygen saturation in the blood and brains of unacclimatized people introduced...

Interesting article: Hypoxia increases muscle hypertrophy induced by resistance training


The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Mie University Graduate School of Medicine, Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, Japan, published an interesting article on how Hypoxia increases muscle hypertrophy induced by resistance training. PURPOSE: Recent studies have shown that low-intensity resistance training with vascular occlusion (kaatsu training) induces muscle hypertrophy. A local hypoxic environment facilitates muscle hypertrophy during kaatsu training. We postulated that muscle hypertrophy...

Altitude acclimatization by sleeping in a head tent


Altitude acclimatization by sleeping in a head tent

Here's our good friend and partner Adrian Ballinger preparing for his oxygen-less attempt on ‪Everest‬ from the Northside (Tibet) with Cory Richards. Adrian has already summited Everest 6x but this will be his first without the use of supplemental O2. Using the Head Tent has allowed Adrian to maintain his aggressive pre-acclimatization schedule without having to infringe on his partner's sleep. Adrian's company Alpenglow Expeditions leads ‪‎RapidAscent‬ expeditions around the world -...

Kilian Jornet Offers First Details of 2016 Everest Speed Record Bid


Kilian Jornet Offers First Details of 2016 Everest Speed Record Bid

Kilian Jornet, already one of the most impressive ultrarunners in the world, is about to upend the mountaineering world, too, with his wildly ambitious — and somewhat mad — Summits of My Life project. So far he has set speed records on Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Denali, and Aconcagua. This year, in his final summit attempt, he’s tackling Everest. And this is no normal Big E bid. Jornet plans to go up the North Side of the mountain, choosing between the Horbein and Norton couloirs,...

Congrats to our friend and client David Liaño for reaching the summit of ‪Everest‬ for the sixth time!


Congrats to our friend and client David Liaño for reaching the summit of ‪Everest‬ for the sixth time!

Climbing Everest involves a long acclimatization process. We make several ascents on the mountain before the final climb to the summit. Every time we go up, we climb higher and higher. Some people call each of these cycles “rotations”. I arrived at Everest Base Camp at 5,300m to begin my rotations on April 19, after attempting to climb Mount Pachermo, and climbing to the summit of Lobuje East. Pachermo is a non-technical peak around 6,200 meters high that this last winter received almost...
