                           Welcome to hypoventilation-training.com!     

 

EThis site has been made and designed by the Association for Research and Promotion of Hypoventilation Training (ARPEH).

The aim of ARPEH is to put forward an innovative sporting training method, which is the result of several years of scientific research: hypoventilation training.

Empirically applied in the 1950's by runners from Eastern Europe, among which the famous Czech athlete Emil Zátopek, hypoventilation training was then massively performed in swimming from the early 1970's at the american trainer's instigation James Counsilman.

The scientifc studies undertaken these last few years by both ARPEH and the laboratory "Cellular and functional responses to hypoxia" of Paris 13 University have enabled to develop a training method that can be used in a great number of sports requiring intense exertion: athletics, swimming, cycling, combat sports, team sports, racket sports...

Another aim of ARPEH is to continue to perform studies on hypoventilation training to deepen the knowledge of this new training method. To do so, we undertake different activities to collect the money that will allow financing the future researches.

All people directly or indirectly involved in human physical performance can discover through this website a method that enables to train virtually at altitudes above 2000 m without leaving sea level and without using expensive and heavy devices.

While browsing this website, you will learn what hypoventilation means and how hypoventilation training has evolved through History.

You will also find an answer to the most frequently asked questions (FAQ) and you can consult the references concerning the studies on hypoventilation training carried out by Paris 13 University and ARPEH. Do not hesitate to read the news to have the latest information about hypoventilation training.

Hypoventilation training is an innovative and natural training method, which, if well applied, can help athletes boost their performance while respecting sporting ethics. Thanks to hypoventilation training, it is possible to make progress and push one's limits in accordance with Pierre de Coubertin's philosophy:

Main contributors to the scientific studies on hypoventilation training

Richalet JPProf. Jean Paul Richalet. Doctor in Medicine, Ph.D in Natural Sciences, qualified in Biomathematics, University Professor in Physiology and Chief of the "Service des Explorations Fonctionnelles" in Avicenne Hospital of Paris Nord. He is the Director of the laboratory "Cellular and functional responses to hypoxia" and the Scientific Director of the "Association pour la recherche en physiologie de l'Environnement". He is one of the world's greatest experts in the area of altitude medicine and altitude physiology. He has published more than 200 scientific articles in international journals so far and is the author of 2 books on health and medicine in altitude. His works are carried out both in man and animal and deal with physiology and physio-pathology of altitude-induced hypoxia, physiology of oxygen transport, exercise physiology and sport medicine. He is regurlarly invited in international conferences or congresses to present his scientific works and acts as a reviewer for numerous scientific journals.

Pichon ADr. Aurélien Pichon. Ph.D in Sport Sciences, qualified to take office as University Professor in Physiology, he works as a Teacher-Researcher in Paris 13 University. His scientific works are carried out in the laboratory "Cellular and functional responses to hypoxia". Specialized in exercise physiology, he is the author or co-author of 45 articles published in international scientific journals and of two book chapters. His researches focus on both man and animal exposed to hypoxic conditions at rest, during exercise or during physical training. He has taken part in many international conferences and congresses and acts as a reviewer for several scientific journals.

Lamberto CDr. Christine Lamberto. Doctor in Medecine, she works as a Teacher-Researcher in Paris 13 University and as hospital doctor (in charge of the "Explorations Fonctionnelles Respiratoires" area in Avicenne Hospital, Paris Nord). She is specialized in respiratory physio-pathology and in exercise physiology (35-year experience). She is the author or co-author of 29 articles published in international scientific journals and is involved in the writting of two book chapters dealing with Medicine.

Vandewalle HDr. Henri Vandewalle. Doctor in Medicine, Teacher-Researcher in Physiolgoy, he works as a hospital doctor in the "Service des Explorations Fonctionnelles" in Avicenne Hospital of Paris Nord.
