Oxygen Advantage® was developed by Patrick McKeown and is a breathing technique specifically created to improve sport performance and health.
The breathing technique is thought to increase exercise intensity while expending less effort and less breath, improve aerobic and anaerobic capacity, optimize energy levels and mental focus, and delay the production of lactic acid and body fatigue.
Oxygen Advantage® emphasizes Slow and Deep Breathing, Nose Breathing, and Breath Retention exercises, and revolves around two pillars: functional breathing and simulation of high altitude training.
Functional breathing focuses on easy breathing during exercise, boosting Oxygen delivery and circulation, opening airways, strengthening your core, getting deep and restful sleep, increasing concentration, reducing anxiety and breathlessness, calming your mind, and feeling happier, healthier, and stronger.
Simulation of altitude training aims at developing more endurance, enhancing performance, faster recovery, delaying the production of lactic acid and fatigue, strengthening breathing muscles, and improving repeated sprint ability.
