ACTIVITY

 

To collect part of the money necessary to run the organization and to finance the scientific researches, ARPEH undertakes different activities:

- Sale of the book "Hypoventilation training, push your limits!"

- Organization and participation to lectures on hypoventilation training

- Measurement of blood oxygenation in swimmers

164 pages - 2 parts (theoretical and practical) - 5 chapters - 56 tables and figures - 106 bibliographic references

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 the book 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 comprehension.

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 illustrations provide the reader with aids to help perform hypoventilation training.

Athletes, trainers, 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 devices.

Lectures on "Hypoventilation training"

The lectures are conducted by Xavier Woorons and aim to present the current knowledge on hypoventilation training. Each conference has a duration of 1H15 to 1H30 minutes and is divided into two parts:

- Presentation (45 min to 1 hour)

- Debate with the audience under the form of question/answer/discussion

At the end of the lecture, it is possible to have a short discussion with the speaker and to buy the book "Hypoventilation training, push your limits".

Measurement of blood oxygenation in swimming

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 2 reasons:

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.
