and remotes
00:00:02
have you reached your will that have never been close to live on the edge
00:00:08
maybe you're thinking of your physical performance yeah with performance maybe you're thinking of your
00:00:12
mental or emotional state have you reached the limit your work of your career
00:00:18
when we push ourselves to finer when it sorry who who purchase of
00:00:23
the finer limit indeed it's similar we're trying to improve performance
00:00:28
we must have a stress or stimulus as well as the recovery or an adaptation period
00:00:34
in order to reach this new level
00:00:37
we also need to continue to challenge ourselves to try to
00:00:40
extend our limits indeed our body has its own limits
00:00:45
for example temperature regulation we have body he tolerance in
00:00:50
cold water immersion tolerance starvation and dehydration et cetera
00:00:55
i would like to focus on two of the bodies main limitations one
00:00:59
being high altitude where we have an extreme lack of oxygen
00:01:03
and to being buffalo regulation where we have a challenge to our vascular system
00:01:08
to be able to accommodate and provide enough applied containing oxygen to our tissues to perform work
00:01:15
we're able to train our body in order to adapt to these two stresses
00:01:21
there are many researchers focusing on developing methods of else to training
00:01:27
trying to understand this stress as a stimulus trying to create a
00:01:33
training to be able to adapt the body to improve performance
00:01:38
we can live high in the mountains and tender probably fine on the changes our body can make over time
00:01:46
to adapt our ability to be able to do it more deliver more oxygen direct issues
00:01:51
or we can live well and expose ourselves to file suit
00:01:55
or training pilots to to challenge the vascular systems everybody
00:02:00
to be able to transport interviews are models with the oxygen that we
00:02:05
need to perform work the purpose of my pieces is exactly this
00:02:09
to assess the changes of blood flow and actually generation of the teach you during
00:02:14
exercise specifically focusing on to stimulus of altitude and of blood flow restriction
00:02:21
trying to exert yeah exaggerate the um
00:02:25
pushing the tolerance of the oxygen transport systems in our body
00:02:31
maybe the purpose is exactly this to find the women of the body
00:02:35
maybe the purpose is actually to better understand altitude endlessly restriction
00:02:40
as a way to push the limits of the oxygen transport systems
00:02:47
if we look at a few general results we can see that the profusion or the amount of
00:02:52
yeah how well that issue is oxygenated we can see that the profusion is altered
00:02:58
i'm more when we have a combination of the two stimulus the altitude and the blood flow restriction
00:03:04
it's similar when we look at performance we have of course altitude and blood flow restriction affecting performance
00:03:11
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
00:03:20
well we know that there's a stimulus this email says there the question is
00:03:24
how can we can we reach a can we moderate in the correct way a training program or training methods to
00:03:32
be able to adapt any of our bodies and our systems everybody's to be able to handle these situations
00:03:40
so can we perform faster stronger and continue longer
