Altipeak FAQ’s

Exercising at altitude with reduced oxygen saturation in the blood means that the muscles have to be more efficient with what limited oxygen is available to them. An increase in mitochondrial density and capillarization of the muscle help produce more energy and deliver more oxygenated blood to the deeper muscle enabling you to work aerobically for longer and at higher intensities.

VO2 max is the maximum amount of oxygen one can utilise during exercise. VO2 max is a metric used to measure the aerobic endurance or the cardiovascular fitness of a person. The unit of VO2 max is ml/kg/min.

If you were to go hiking, it should be noted that you must first adjust to this environment. If you haven’t been trained in this setting, this may be a problem. You should begin your training in an atmosphere that provides the same or equivalent atmospheric pressure to an altitudinal feeling. Remember to use altitude gear to get ready for it. Try this for 3-5 days in a week while you’re working out. Sleep in an Altitude tent for few days before you start hiking. This helps you acclimatise better for the environment you are about to enter.

Athletes from many sports have used high altitude training to practice for a major match or game, not only when the event is high. They do that because at higher altitudes the air is “Thinner.” This means that less molecules of oxygen per volume of air exist. Each breath taken at high altitude provides less of the working muscles needed. To make up for the oxygen decrease, one of the body’s hormones, erythropoietin (EPO), activates produces more red blood cells to assist the muscles in oxygen delivery.

A training mask does not simulate an Altitude set up rather it only cuts down the air making it difficult for you to breathe. This method is not recommended by Industry experts as it causes asphyxiation. Training Masks are often used as a fashion statement and they are extensively hyped.

There are no benefits to a training Mask. It Does not cause the body to physically adapt to create more red blood cells. It does not simulate altitude but works like a respiratory training device. However a mask based Altitude training Simulated system like the Alti i1 – (link of the product) helps to simulate the altitude and provides the same benefits of training or living in the heights of Colorado – 6800 ft.

Elevation masks do not promote altitude training. The masks use a valve mechanism to reduce airflow to the lungs, which allows you to breathe deeper as compared to normal breathing. You do not get the control of oxygen content entering your lung, you only control the overall air flow. The composition of air remains the same which is 20.9% oxygen, 78.09 Nitrogen. That is what are called “restricted air exercise” or “inspiratory muscle exercise.”
Our Mask based altitude training generator Alti i1 gives you the advantage to control the oxygen content from 12% to 15% and our Oxywise generator can supply 40% oxygen for recovery after a session.

Altitude training is practice for many weeks at high altitudes, usually over 2,400 meters above sea level, by some elite athletes, although this is more usual at moderate altitudes due to the lack of suitable high altitude locations.
You can also train yourself at “Altitudinal Based Gyms” like Altipeak in Ireland. Such gym gives the same atmosphere as high altitudes. We also have equipment such as Alti machines, training masks, sleeping pods and many more relevant equipment that help to increase stamina and endurance.

It is quite important to understand the specifications of an Altitude training equipment. At Altipeak International we give you the flexibility to configure your Training Machinery.

The best times to reach high altitude competition by sea-level athletes are either within 18 hours of action or within 7-10 days of competition. Plan altitude training 4-6 weeks before competition. The most problematic schedule arrives two to four days before the case, because in this time you will more likely feel the impact of disturbed sleep, traveling exhaustion and dehydration. But With our Oxywise chamber we help you recovery safely at 40% oxygen content that is integrated into our system.

No, it’s not illegal. It is rather legal, since people living at high altitude are more stable and robust than people living at sea level. Such training facilities are rendered and legally available to balance the gaps between the two tiers. Training centers such as Altipeak help people lift their level to those who already live high and motivate them to achieve their goal. In all sports, altitude simulation is legal and healthy. It has been investigated by the World Anti-Doping Authority and declared that altitudinal training would be the standard of playground for athletes who cannot live or practice for high places.

Most altitude tents are normobaric, meaning the air inside the tent is just as thick as it is normally at sea level, but a machine attached to the tent replaces some of the oxygen with nitrogen so you’ll breathe less oxygen.

Through the use of Hypoxico’s altitude tent system, individuals can safely and effectively take advantage of the scientific maxim “live high, train low” and achieve the benefits associated with exposure to hypoxia.

Low oxygenation elevation training mask training 3 times a week may help you reach your dream goal faster, weight loss is faster. Using the Training Mask just 3 times a week during a cardio workout minimum of 20-45 minutes can help accelerate outstanding weight loss.
