This book is the result of several years of scientific research
and is currently the only one in international litterature to
deal with hypoventilation training
The first part of thebook
presents the theoretical aspects of hypoventilation training. It
describes the effects and
adaptions induced by this training method based on scientific
studies published, for the most part, in the last decade.
This first part includes numerous figures as
well as “physiological reminders” frames to facilitate reader
The second part of the book deals with the practical
aspects of hypoventilation training. It is useful to
know how to apply the hypoventilation technique and how to
structure training in order to get the best results in many
disciplines (athletics, cycling, swimming, combat sports, team
sports, racket sports).
Tables and illustrationsprovide the reader
with aids to help perform hypoventilation training.
physical coaches, and all
the people involved or interested in human physical performance
can find in this book how it is possible, theoretically and
pratically, to push one's limits without breaking the law
relating to sporting ethics and without using expensive and heavy
Assistance to athletes for applying hypoventilation
ARPEH collaborates with athletes of many disciplines to help
hypoventilation training. This assistance can be provided
- Individual coaching: provides an individual
and appropriated assistance. We follow you on the field to make
your learning easier and to help optimize your hypoventilation
training. Blood oxygen data are recorded with a high tech device
during exercise and are analyzed at the end of the session.
- Collective coaching (2 to 8 people): to
learn how to train with hypoventilation or to improve your
hypoventilation training in a friendly atmosphere. For a better
quality of work, each athlete will be given a specific pulse
oximeter that allows the measurement of blood oxygenation while
- E-coaching (electronic coaching or coaching
: when direct coaching is not possible, E-coaching represents an
interesting way to learn how to train with hypoventilation or to
optimize your training.
Through e-mail exchanges, E-coaching enables to have an answer to
your needs. You can get a single advise, hypoventilation exercises,
hypoventilation training sessions or a full hypoventilation
training program for one week or more. The whole is appropriated to
both your discipline and your level. Everything is possible with
How does it work? It is simple:
1st step: you contact us by e-mail to
let us know about your needs
2nd step: we analyze your request and
we make an estimate for your answer
3rd step: we send the estimate by
e-mail with a link to pay safely via Paypal
4th step: if you accept the estimate,
you juste click on the link to make the payment and you
then get rapidly the answer to your request

In 2013, for the first time, ARPEH and the laboratory
"Cellular and functional responses to hypoxia" from Paris 13
University managed to continuously measure blood oxygenation
during a swimming exercise.
To do so, we used an innovative oximetry technique we tested
both the accuracy and the reliability in our laboratory. We
demonstrated that data measured with this new equipment were similar to capillary blood samplings. The method has therefore
been validated scientifically (Woorons et al., Respiration
Physiology & Neurobiology, 2014).
We offer to swimmers, trainers or swimming organizations to take
advantage of this new technolgy in order to assess blood
oxygenation during exercise.
The measurement of blood oxygenation in swimmers is interesting for
1) It allows learning more easily the hypoventilation technique at
low lung volume (exhale-hold) and to control whether
hypoventilation training is peformed effectively.
2) It enables to detect swimmers who suffer from exercise-induced
hypoxemia (lower blood oxygenation) while
performing intense exertion with normal breathing.
A decrease in blood oxygenation by only a few percents can
reduce performance. When detected, this decrease
can be avoided or significantly limited by modifying or correcting
the respiratory technique.
Measuring blood oxygenation is an important stake for all
swimmers who want to remain competitive.
