High Altitude Training

 

At the moment I'm working with the Htpoxico High Altitude machine to help reduce my asthma medication (steroid inhalers). I've been off athsma medication for over 4 months. Studies has proven that athma attacks are less frequent and severe with this particular style of training. For further information, please contact me.

What is Altitude Training?

Altitude training, also known as hypoxic training, involves exercising in, living in or otherwise breathing oxygen-reduced air for the purpose of improved athletic performance, pre-acclimatization to altitude and/or physical wellness.  Traditionally, individuals had to travel to or live at high elevations to obtain the benefits of this phenomenon.  Circa 1995, the patented technology of Hypoxico Inc. eliminated this hardship by allowing altitude facilities to be set up anywhere.  Through the production of normobaric hypoxic (oxygen reduced) air, we can simulate altitudes of up to 21,000ft/6,400m.  As a result, athletes, fitness enthusiasts and health conscious individuals worldwide can take advantage of the benefits associated with altitude training while at sea-level.  

Why it works

When the human body is exposed to hypoxia (oxygen reduced environments), it struggles to produce required amounts of energy with less available oxygen.  This struggle triggers the onset of a range of physiological adaptations geared towards enhancing the efficiency of the body’s respiratory, cardiovascular and oxygen utilization systems.

Methods

Over the last 20 years, research has begun to accumulate; outlining the most effective methods of hypoxic therapy.  Your Universal Mask Kit, coupled with your Everest Summit II Hypoxic Generator, will uniquely enable you to do all three popular methods supported by a plethora of scientific studies. 

 

1. Altitude Sleeping Systems – These systems are ideal for the elite athlete looking to boost performance with a “sleep-high, train-low” training regimen or the mountaineer looking to maximize exposure to high altitude for purposes of pre-acclimatization.  Sleeping at altitude has been known to increase blood levels associated with performance gains.

2. Altitude Workout Systems –Take your physiological adaptation to an even further level by adding altitude workouts to your training. The Universal Mask Kit is perfect for home use in conjunction with your exercise equipment of choice.  Altitude workouts have been proven to significantly enhance the way your cells process oxygen, leading to significant lactate threshold increase and overall performance gain.     

3. IHT (Intermittent Hypoxic Therapy) – Using the Universal Mask Kit and a High Altitude Adapter, you can reach altitudes as high as 21,000ft/6400m.  Repeated 5min exposures to this altitude while in a relaxed state has been shown to enhance your body’s use of oxygen, helping to fight and prevent certain chronic illnesses while improving overall health and wellness.  In Europe, this concept has been successfully applied to the treatment of asthma, allergies, diabetes, sleep disorders, and many other degenerative or chronic diseases.
