Intermittent Hypoxic Training
(IHT) is scientifically proven and popular
amongst athletes looking for a legal and drug-free way to further improve
their performance and to get that vital edge over the competition.
IHT is delivered in short bursts of reduced oxygen (hypoxic) air breathing
via a mask, alternated with ambient air breathing or NEW hyperoxic
recovery available at some GO2Altitude® models. Not only do you have full
control over the training session and can easily monitor your response,
but also, with the latest FULL BIOFEEDBACK CONTROL technology pioneered by
GO2Altitude®, your training can be completely controlled by the smart
algorithms embedded into the system!
An important empirical finding was made in the 1970s as a result of
military aviation medicine research. The phenomena of IHT is that
short-term repeated hypoxia re-oxygenation intervals provide training
challenge, whereas continuous exposure to the same simulated altitude
might have a debilitating rather than training effect on the human body.
Another key to success in performance enhancement using IHT is in
selecting the correct degree of challenge delivered to your body.
GO2Altitude® have pioneered and mastered training protocols that assist
with the individualisation of your training regime.
The magnitude of the training effect of extreme altitude is so great, that
you will feel the challenge of hypoxic air breathing, even within one or
two minutes. Although challenging, daily IHT sessions are pleasant and
relaxing generally conducted while sitting in a comfortable chair or a
recliner. A full course of training requires only 15 - 20 sessions.
The rationale behind the IHT is that is has a number of physiological
effects, each of them contributing to your enhanced performance WITHOUT
