Exercise with oxygen training
EWOT or exercise with oxygen is a training process that trains the body while in an oxygen-rich environment. Also known as Multi-step Oxygen Therapy a training system where the person exercising is breathing a high flow rate of oxygen-enriched air. This results in the increased oxygen-carrying capability of the red blood cells and blood plasma, the fluid part of the blood which improves athletic endurance & performance.
Why would you do this test? The incorporation of increased oxygen supply with exercise leads to faster oxygen circulation. This allows for increased oxygen pressure in the veins, enabling the capillaries to repair the transfer mechanism in the body. The strengthened mechanism will allow more oxygen to diffuse through the capillary wall to oxygen-thirsty tissues. Simply put, the EWOT supplies more oxygen through the body to increase the cell’s energy level, allowing us to perform more intensively and effectively.
Who is this test recommended for? This test is recommended for athletes 12 years old and older. EWOT training is recommended 1-2 times per week.
How often should you repeat this test? EWOT testing is recommended 1 time per year. Training sessions for those athletes that test low are recommended 1-2 times per week.
Which body parts are or can be tested? EWOT testing and training are geared around testing an athletes lung performance an oxygen saturation during sessions.
What are the results of this test? EWOT increases the body’s metabolism. It also improves memory and the brain’s processing speed, as the adequate supply of oxygen to the cells promotes quick stimuli-response mechanisms.
What does this help to improve? The treatment also helps get the body back to its clean and natural state. The increased oxygen in the blood and tissues can protect athletes from diseases, bacteria, and other viruses by optimizing the cellular metabolic processes and enriching our blood with oxygen supply.
