5/31/19 - [VIDEO] Breath Pt. 2 – Apnea

Our newest specialty course, DEUCE Breath & Exposure, includes three unique breath pathways. In this second of three insights, you’ll get a grasp of another important breath practice: apnea training.

If you’ve heard of apnea, it’s usually in a negative context like, “My uncle suffers from terrible sleep apnea.” The reason for this is “apnea” is most literally not breathing. While hopefully you’re breathing (through your nose) while you sleep, there are times when a breath hold can be both intentional and beneficial. ENTER: apnea training.

Thoughtful apnea training helps build our CO2 tolerance, which is critically important to how efficient we are with breath. After all, it’s rarely a lack of oxygen that makes you want to breath, but the lack of tolerance for the CO2 in your system instead.

Interested in learning more? We’re hosting our final Breath & Exposure Seminar this Saturday June 1st from 1-4pm. You can enroll here. Space is limited.

Of course, the force you’re using to move the load must be greater than the load itself or you won’t get it to move, but we often make assumptions that all made lifts are the same. This is untrue.In fact, lifts that are submaximal come with a whole ...
