Methods Of Hypoxic Training
Methods of Hypoxic Training
You can get access your altitude training needs in different ways. You can choose between either commercial systems or home systems. Commercial systems are multi-user systems that are designed to fit your needs. Home systems allow you to train at altitude from the comfort of your own home.
In order to reap the benefits that the actual hypoxic training itself offers, there are several hypoxic training methods one can choose from:
Hypoxico's Intermittent Hypoxic Training system, also known as IHT or Intermittent Hypoxia Training, involves short intermittent inhalations of hypoxic air interspersed with inhalations of ambient air. This will challenge the body and provide many great health-related benefits.
What is altitude training?
Altitude training, also known as hypoxic training or low oxygen training, involves exercising in, living in or otherwise breathing oxygen reduced air. This is done to improve athletic performance and physical wellness. Training under a state of hypoxia can also help people acclimatize to altitude.
Circa 1995, Hypoxico's patented technology made it possible for people all over the world to reap the benefits to altitude training without the actual need to be at a high altitude. With this, high altitude training facilities could be set up anywhere. We have accomplished this through the production and use of so-called normobaric air which is used to simulate altitudes of up to 21,000ft/6.400m. Now, people can enjoy the benefits of low oxygen training while at sea-level.
