Per this article in Shape Magazine, adding altitude/elevation to your workout will increase the flow of oxygen to your muscles.
If you live at sea-level, adding altitude/elevation may seem impossible. However, that is exactly what we do at Gym For The Brain. In fact, of the 7 recommendations made in the article, we incorporate 6 of them at Gym For The Brain (we leave the sand at the beach!).
Per this National Library of Medicine article reporting a study of elite athletes, altitude/hypoxic training, like what we do at Gym For The Brain, appears more effective than sea-level training for improvement of oxygen delivery capacity and aerobic exercise capacity.
If you live at sea-level and want to improve your oxygen delivery, which is key to health, fitness and performance, consider oxygen-enhanced altitude training.
One of the side benefits Gym For The Brain clients have noticed is weight loss. After each session of hypoxic interval training, the rider closes out with approximately 5 minutes of breathing 86% oxygen. This elevated oxygen (4x what we normally breathe) feeds the body long after the workout has finished.(more…)
This article talks about a new high-altitude / low-oxygen training facility created by Asics Corporation in Osaka, Japan.
