Improved aerobic capacity and endurance performance. Significant increase in average power and average speed during time trial (cycling) (Czuba, 2011).
Larger Improvements in repeated sprint performance in repeated sprint in hypoxia (RSH) than repeated sprint in normoxia (RSN) with significant molecular adaptations and larger blood perfusion (Faiss, 2013,2014).
Improved metabolic risk factors: body weight and composition, blood glucose and blood pressure (Journal of Science and Medicine In Sport 2013).
Significant Increase in V02 Max after 3 weeks of intermittent hypoxic training with 95% of lactate threshold intensity (Czuba, 2011).
Superior and more rapid strength gains from resistance training achieved (Nishimura, 2010).
Increased (4%) V02 Max, combined with an increase in maximal power output (5.6%) (Czuba, 2011).
Greater Lactate tolerance, improving high intensity endurance performance (Czuba, 2011)
Increased number of sprints by 38% (4 additional sprint efforts) prior to exhaustion (Faiss, 2013).
Enhanced muscle flow and vasodilation of blood vessels (Faiss, 2013)
