HYPOXIA IN ALICANTE
Hypoxia training or hypoxic training is a technique designed to improve athletic performance, which consists of reducing the availability of breathable oxygen as a form of physical preparation prior to a sporting event.
This forces the body to make certain physiological adaptations to be more effective.
Hypoxia is a status in which there is a deficit of oxygen supply to the cells, so aerobic performance is limited. Normally this situation of hypoxia is reached naturally when we ascend to a considerable height above sea level, but thanks to the hypoxia rooms of Syncroesfera, you can experience different heights without leaving the room.
SYNCROESFERA HAS 14 ROOMS EQUIPPED WITH ARTIFICIAL HYPOXIA SYSTEM THAT reach A HEIGHT OF 4000m
What is the objective of hypoxia rooms?
The main goal of the hypoxia room is to increase sports performance in oxygen-deprived conditions at different heights from the room. Leading to increased oxygen supply at both central and peripheral levels.
At the hematological level, the function of transport of oxygen through the blood increases, due to the rise of the total hemoglobin mass. This response occurs mostly through increased secretion of erythropoietin, the main stimulant of red blood cell production.
Altitude also causes muscle adaptations, such as improved mitochondrial function, increased capillarization, the amount of myoglobin in muscle, and muscle buffering capacity
IS AN HYPOXIA ROOM INDICATED FOR ME?
Training in hypoxic conditions is an adaptation that can be performed by anyone who wants to increase their performance and live the training experience as a professional.
In general, it is great for cycling teams, training groups (triathlon, swimming, running…) aerobic or collective sport; or any professional athlete who wants to increase their performance individually in our rooms.
What are the benefits of altitude training?
- Helps prepare for competitions at altitude
- Increases efficiency at sea level
- Increases training volume in post-training camp training after altitude training camp
- Aids rehabilitation after injuries and prevents loss of sporting fitness.
- Produces a cross adaptation to heat
HOW ARE THE STAYS IN OUR HYPOXIA ROOMS PREPARED?
MONITORING YOUR RECOVERY AND ADAPTATION
By using a pulse oximeter we will monitor your average O2 % during the night, as well as your average heart rate. This will allow us to measure your state of recovery and your level of adaptation to hypoxic conditions, being able to make changes in altitude to optimize your performance.
ADVICE FROM THE FIRST DAY
We perform a hypoxia tolerance test to customize your altitude training program and optimize your training.
DAILY ADAPTATION OF YOUR TRAINING PLAN
In addition to daily training load monitoring, we will be able to set up different graphs that will help us understand your progress and adaptation.
Based on this data and recovery data, our experts will make a series of daily recommendations to get your maximum performance (increase or decrease altitude, recovery in hyperbaric chamber, reduction or increase of training load…).
After the stay in our facilities under hypoxia conditions, we will perform an evaluation of results based on the following parameters:
- Blood tests
- HRV monitoring
