About ExtremeO2 – VO2 Max Training
Altitude contrast training reflects a new philosophy in athletic training. It emphasizes adaptability and exercises the adaptive responses provoked by rapidly changing the environment from high to low oxygen and back again.
Hyperoxic environments can allow the body to grow soft, while hypoxic environments can allow the body to become weak from deprivation. Transitions between strain and provoke transitory durability and stimulate the body to exist at either extreme.
This durability equates to better health, and combines the healing benefits from high oxygen environments, with the metabolic efficiency that results from living in a low oxygen environment.
Contrast is the key.
