Hyperoxic Training Increases Work Capacity After Maximal Training at Moderate Altitude – Discussion

Improvement in aerobic capacity with hyperoxia has been demonstrated in many studies. In human subjects, Linnarsson et al showed that hyperbaric hyperoxia (1.4 atmosphere, inspiratory 02 tension of 212 mm Hg) resulted in a 10 percent increase in Vo2max and … Continue reading

Hyperoxic Training Increases Work Capacity After Maximal Training at Moderate Altitude – Results

All subjects were engaged in some training before entry into the study (Table 1). Subjects reached a plateau in exercise performance after 53 to 244 days of supervised baseline training. Baseline training resulted in stable values for maximal workload, Tmax, … Continue reading

Hyperoxic Training Increases Work Capacity After Maximal Training at Moderate Altitude – Statistical Analysis

The oxygen and carbon dioxide analyzers were calibrated before each test with a standard calibration gas mixture; the pneumotachograph was calibrated with a 1-L syringe. After each test, gas analyzer drift was measured and did not exceed 0.3 percent for … Continue reading

Hyperoxic Training Increases Work Capacity After Maximal Training at Moderate Altitude – Methods

The response to aerobic training depends on the intensity, frequency, and duration of the training sessions. Several lines of evidence point to intensity as the most important determinant of this response. Theoretically, as long as training intensity increases, exercise capacity … Continue reading
