More than 350 athletes, climbers and teams throughout the world are using the Hypoxia Training and are seeing excellent gains in performance – quite phenomenal in many cases.
This is because Intermittent Hypoxia Training (IHT) increases the effeciency of exercise and training.
The maximum use of oxygen has not changed for 40 years even in the world’s greatest runners.
The development of world records in the 21st century is possible only through an improvement of anaerobic training.
IHT also improves Anaerobic capacity (V02max)
Target – Improved Performance
It has been proven that the key to the best results of hypoxic training is not altitude value, duration of stay, or timing of exposure.
The trick is in the correct selection of all of these three parameters adjusted for the particular individual.
The experience of hundreds of researchers and thousands of users of IHT demonstrates that the effect of the hypoxic adaptation is magnified by multiple transitions from LOW to HIGH and back. Believe it or not, but a 50-90 min session of IHT is even more efficient than staying (sleeping) at low oxygen air environment for a much longer period.
Controlled studies on sleeping in hypoxic environments has shown it to stimulate:
The combined results of these effects are impressive- as much as a 15% increase in oxygen carrying capacity and efficiency of oxygen use. The best part is that all of these positive gains require can be obtained with no additional effort on the part of the athlete. All you have to do is sleep!

In the interest of improving our understanding of how to make the very most of this technology, may we suggest that athletes petition their governing bodies to commission further studies and research . In this way we all gain!
