How effective would doing FRC walks during work be? I've been doing this the last week or so, but other than some odd looks as I gasp for air, I can't tell if it has any long-term potential :confused:

Hi Fuzz,
I think it works.
I do the same due to lack of time for formal training.
I work near to my home, and when I'm coming back do some FRC apneas walks. Also I only train at pool in FRC, and I found performance improvement.
Try al least a PB every month or every 2 weeks, and you'll know if this kind of training is helping you.
With this kind of 'really hypoxic' training, you have to take care of your nutrition, I eat a lot of antioxidants, and also Vitamins E and C in excess. In order to avoid O2 radicals to affect your immune system.
