Return to Recovery

Post Performance/Training

This is a training or performance clear protocol.  Use this protocol after your workout or after a performance to clear exertion waste and restore blood flow.  This protocol usually cuts recovery time to about half on normal.

It works by clearing inflammation which retards recovery.

Protocol Goals:

  • Restore blood flow to traumatized tissues to enable healing reversing inflammation triggered during training;
  • Increase core system performance to reduce systemic waste accumulation to avoid over-training fatigue;
  • Flush post-performance lactic acid to prevent soreness;
  • Maximize body-wide dissolved oxygen to accelerate healing in connective tissue to reduce micro-trauma accumulation.

Post Performance Protocol:

  1. Fill the oxygen reservoir
  2. Connect Mask
  3. Warm up on the exercise equipment until you reach your target pulse rate **
  4. Exercise for 8 minutes at your preferred aerobic output
  5. Do the following steps 3 times
    1. Switch to high altitude and begin 30 second sprint
    2. First 15 seconds – high altitude then switch to high oxygen for 15 seconds
    3. Recover on oxygen
    4. Do legs feel better than before if yes? go to a
    5. If legs do not feel better goto 7
  6. Stop exertion at 12 minutes
  7. Continue breathing oxygen until pulse drops 100 bpm.

** If you feel tired beginning use +O2 Setting – If you feel “strong” then use -O2 to accelerate warm-up until your heart rate gets to your normal aerobic training level.
