and remotes
have you reached your will that have never been close to live on the edge
maybe you're thinking of your physical performance yeah with performance maybe you're thinking of your
mental or emotional state have you reached the limit your work of your career
when we push ourselves to finer when it sorry who who purchase of
the finer limit indeed it's similar we're trying to improve performance
we must have a stress or stimulus as well as the recovery or an adaptation period
in order to reach this new level
we also need to continue to challenge ourselves to try to
extend our limits indeed our body has its own limits
for example temperature regulation we have body he tolerance in
cold water immersion tolerance starvation and dehydration et cetera
i would like to focus on two of the bodies main limitations one
being high altitude where we have an extreme lack of oxygen
and to being buffalo regulation where we have a challenge to our vascular system
to be able to accommodate and provide enough applied containing oxygen to our tissues to perform work
we're able to train our body in order to adapt to these two stresses
there are many researchers focusing on developing methods of else to training
trying to understand this stress as a stimulus trying to create a
training to be able to adapt the body to improve performance
we can live high in the mountains and tender probably fine on the changes our body can make over time
to adapt our ability to be able to do it more deliver more oxygen direct issues
or we can live well and expose ourselves to file suit
or training pilots to to challenge the vascular systems everybody
to be able to transport interviews are models with the oxygen that we
need to perform work the purpose of my pieces is exactly this
to assess the changes of blood flow and actually generation of the teach you during
exercise specifically focusing on to stimulus of altitude and of blood flow restriction
trying to exert yeah exaggerate the um
pushing the tolerance of the oxygen transport systems in our body
maybe the purpose is exactly this to find the women of the body
maybe the purpose is actually to better understand altitude endlessly restriction
as a way to push the limits of the oxygen transport systems
if we look at a few general results we can see that the profusion or the amount of
yeah how well that issue is oxygenated we can see that the profusion is altered
i'm more when we have a combination of the two stimulus the altitude and the blood flow restriction
it's similar when we look at performance we have of course altitude and blood flow restriction affecting performance
the combination of the two again provides a greater stimulus a greater stress on the body so i'll have we found that when it
well we know that there's a stimulus this email says there the question is
how can we can we reach a can we moderate in the correct way a training program or training methods to
be able to adapt any of our bodies and our systems everybody's to be able to handle these situations
so can we perform faster stronger and continue longer
