This guide is to help you as an athlete better understand when to use Oxygen Plus (formerly Oxygen Factor) for optimal results.
When to use Oxygen Plus:
Before and during any strength training (weights, plyos or circuit training)
Before and during any sprint interval training (run or bike)
Before and during cardio training IF THE GOAL IS CUTTING WEIGHT.
After EVERY tough workout for recovery
Before and during EVERY competitive performance
When NOT to use Oxygen Plus:
Before or during any cardio training IF THE GOAL IS TO STRENGTHEN YOUR CARDIO VASCULAR OR RESPIRATORY SYSTEM.
Factors to keep in mind:
Muscles respond to stimulus. The harder you train, the faster they will respond. By using Oxygen Plus for all your strength and speed training sessions, you will be able to push beyond your normal threshold (more reps and heavier weights) and attain faster strength and muscle building gains.
Muscle recovery is crucial to attaining your goals in less time. The faster your body recovers, the faster you can get back to training at 100% effort. This is why we highly recommend using Oxygen Plus after all of your really tough workouts – so that you recover in the least amount of time and are feeling really fresh going into your next training session.
Using supplemental oxygen during endurance (cardio) training is like cheating. That’s why if your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular and respiratory systems, we do NOT recommend using Oxygen Plus because it is counterproductive to your goal. HOWEVER, if your goal is simply to cut weight, then using Oxygen Plus during any cardio training definitely makes sense.
