CrossFit Open 2018 – Pure O2

Why IT WORKS…

We created Pure O2 learning from the principles of martial arts and meditation. Our goal was to maximise the amount of work done in the SHORTEST space of Time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time OR power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. Focus and concentration is the first thing to fade when the body is put under extreme physical strain. The first signs of this is, form starts to slip, muscles start to burn, breathing becomes uncontrollable and lastly dizziness.   90% of the time, this is not due to a lack of calorie intake but rather a lack of oxygen. The longer the intensity the more the oxygen required to continue at peak levels, and prevent lactic acid build up. When under a competitive environment, cortisol and adrenalin levels are high, further depleting the body’s oxygen levels. Read more

Back To Basics – O2 Physiology

 

The composition of dry air is 20.98% O2, 0.04% CO2, 78.06% N2, and 0.92% other inert constituents such as argon and helium. The movement of this oxygen from the outside environment to the cells within the tissues, and the transport of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction is defined as physiological respiration. Biologically, respiration can also be defined as a process of producing cellular energy. Where oxygen is present in this metabolic process aerobic respiration take place i.e. Glucose + Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide + Water + Energy. Read more

Portable Oxygen Canisters

Now there’s NO excuse for being out of breath. With premium concentrated oxygen available in portable, light weight canisters, being out of breath should never slow you down.

With age, comes the inefficiencies in the body’s ability to produce energy for day to day activities, such as climbing a flight of stairs, walking through a mall or even exercise. Portable oxygen canisters now offer a solution to get through such challenges. By eliminating the feeling of being out of breath, you can get on with living life. Read more
