The way i go about things

I may very well be some kind of freak, but genes mean nothing without environmental challenges to express them, and so between what my father taught me and scientific findings there is a method to my madness.

In general:

You may not know this but you can improve better through aerobic cross training, really - despite its name, i notice you have the same capacity for running out of oxygen on land, and its safer. All you do is pause and well, catch your breath. Its worth noting that Tanya Streeter did little or no hypoxic training, just a bunch of aerobics, and her record still stands. This is especially important as pools are being closed to us.

My preference is dancing for hours in a smoke free space.

Breathwork, meditation - heres where one should apply the hyperventilation to improve HIF. And i reccommend going to the source instead of listening to some dutch guy...

The act itself: i just inhale and go for it.

This is how ive ended up considering 50m DNF in board shorts easy. :p
Ps: Cold exposure for the whole trpm8-HIF thing

One may notice that this is similar to the synchro team in that article as trained by none other than PFI. No coincidence i think.

Im pretty sure this scientifically maximizes all safety margins in training and practice after throwing in what Streeter did.

and we dont have to bother with pools anymore for the most part.
