Intermittent Hypoxic Training
Hypoxico’s Intermittent Hypoxic Training system (IHT) enables athletes, injured athletes, and sedentary individuals to enhance performance, increase fitness while injured, and pre-acclimtize to high altitudes.
IHT involves short intermittent inhalations (3-5 minutes) of hypoxic air (10% O2, 20,000ft/6000m) interspersed with inhalations of ambient air (2-5 minutes).
These hypoxic and hypercapnic (increase CO2) cycles recreate a natural physiological training mechanism that occurs in mammalian embryonic development to help newborns fight the initial oxidative stress of hyperoxia at birth. The same effect can boost an adult’s defense against unavoidable oxidative stress, hopefully aiding in the following:
- Prevention/alleviation of chronic and degenerative illnesses (Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer)
- Slowing of the aging process
- Promotion of overall health, wellness and rejuvenation

Although strongly geared towards wellness, IHT is actually a very universal training protocol and will prove valuable in any altitude training program.
*IHT should always be performed under doctor or medical professional supervision.
