The Elevation Training Mask – A Competitive Advantage

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Elite and well-trained athletes search for the competitive edge in their training to optimize their competition results. Altitude training and respiratory muscle training (RMT) have been reported to improve performance in aerobic capacity in competitive distance runners. For athletes who train in environments that lack diversity of altitudes, devices

Can Head Cooling Increase Aerobic Performance In The Heat?

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Thermoregulation and managing heat stress is critical for aerobic and anaerobic athletes that complete in hot and dry conditions. Competing in such conditions can diminish physical performance, and athletes tolerate varying levels of temperature exposure. Various cooling methods have been employed to address rising body temperatures and thermal stress. 

10 Ways To Boost Your Immunity

Dayton Kelly The following was adapted from a combination of speeches given at the European Sports Science Conference 2017, most notably Walsh, N. et al. [United Kingdom] and Nieman, D. [United States]. Everyone hates getting sick. It is uncomfortable, it keeps you away from the things you love and it makes training difficult. Thus,

Vestibular Migraines: Could Exercise Be The Answer?

Catherine O’Brien My last article highlighted the inverse relationship between headaches and VO2 max levels such that individuals who experienced headaches regularly had, on average, lower VO2 peaks than their control counterparts. Perhaps one of the most interesting findings from Hagen and colleagues’ study was that this inverse relationship was present, even when controlling for

The Effects Of Altitude Training On Competitive Swimmers

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Hypoxic training, also known as altitude training (training at heights above sea level), has been used for athletes in endurance sports to improve performance at sea level. Sport performance is improved when oxygen is transported around the body to working muscles. The more oxygen you can circulate, the harder

Are Thermogenic Dietary Supplements Safe & Effective For Resistance Training?

A Review by Alyssa Bialowas Thermogenic dietary supplements are multi-ingredient sports supplements designed to improve athletic performance, promote fat oxidation, and increase thermogenesis (a metabolic process where your body burns calories to produce heat). Many athletes and active individuals look to dietary supplementation to increase body composition, lose weight, and boost exercise performance, especially

Don’t Resist Resistance Training

Alyssa Bialowas Introduction The strength and thickness ratio of shoulder stabilizing muscles is essential to support the frequent movement and competitive athletic advantage. Due to the dexterity of the shoulder joint itself, the musculature of the shoulder is complex, making it very vulnerable to injury. Muscle balance of the shoulder requires that the antagonist and
