The CVAC process has been proven to assist both conditioned athletes and severely deconditioned individuals achieve their personal best. However, you don’t have to be an athlete in order to get the benefits from CVAC. The CVAC process stimulates your body’s mitochondrial activity, which results not only an improvement in athletic performance, but improvement in your overall health. Individuals at all levels of fitness seeking to improve their health have participated in over three hundred thousand CVAC sessions.
Confronted with the demands of work and life, it can sometimes be hard to find the time to dedicate to exercise. Yet, good physical conditioning is a key componentof a healthy, balanced lifestyle. At the same time, there is no escaping those obligations that keep vying for your time and attention. CVAC sessions are a good way to supplement traditional exercise to achieve overall good health.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CVAC POD?
The American College of Sports Medicine indicates that there is a greater than normal stress or load on the body that is required in order for training adaptation to take place. In the CVAC process, a combination of air density, temperature and dynamic changes in pressure will create the greater stress or load on the body.
During a 20-minute CVAC session, your body will be surrounded by patterned pressure changes in clean, fresh air. In just seconds, you will be stimulated, when you are taken up to high altitudes and then back down again to sea-level. These pressure changes will lead to changes in the temperature and the density air, which will look like brief periods of warmer and cooler air.
As your body adapts to these changes, you will begin to experience physical benefits similar to that of a total-body, interval-resistance type training.
THE BENEFITS OF CYCLIC VARIATIONS IN ADAPTIVE CONDITIONING
What’s great about the CVAC process is that you will get all of the perks of traditional aerobic and anaerobic exercise, without the joint stress and aggressive physical exertion that can be associated with some of these activities. The CVAC process can be used to improve your overall physical conditioning and fitness in a way that is less jarring on your muscles.
However, it’s important to note that the CVAC process is not intended to replace any other forms of exercise or physical conditioning. Rather, it’s here to enhance your everyday routine. Before getting started with the CVAC process, we highly recommend that you consult with a healthcare practitioner. Research has revealed the following about CVAC.
Your body depends on oxygen, because every cell must have it for energy and growth, so that they can keep you alive. With the increased altitude levels you will experience, your body will adapt to the lack of oxygen by producing erythropoietin, a hormone that will increases red blood cell mass and hemoglobin. The result is maximized oxygen uptake and delivery to the tissues and muscles when they work at normal altitudes. Now, you can perform activities for a longer period of time, and not get so exhausted.
IMPROVED QUALITY OF SLEEP
If you’re tired of those restless nights, then maybe it’s time for a change. The patterned pressure changes that occur when you are inside the CVAC system has been shown to improve the quality of sleep. Which means that you can experience deeper, more restful sleep with less interruptions during the night.
REDUCED INFLAMMATION & SWELLING
The lymphatic system’s ability to effectively eliminate waste is crucial in order to achieve optimal health. When your body experiences the pressure changes as part of the CVAC process, this isgood news for your lymphatic system. At higher altitudes, your blood vessels and lymphatic system are exposed to less pressure whichallows for better lymphatic drainage, expansion of the vessels and improved blood flow. When the lymphatic system’s elimination process goes more smoothly (its ability to get rid of waste products or “cleaning house”) this will result in reduced inflammation and swelling.
INCREASED FEELINGS OF ALERTNESS & MENTAL ACUITY (COGNITIVE FITNESS)
Brain fog is no fun especially if it happens right before an important meeting or work presentation. Believe it or not, the way to sharpen your brain’s activity comes from your body’s exposure to greater stress similar to when you lift weights or head on a mountain trek. An increase in mitochondrial formation (the powerhouse of every cell in your body) leads to increased energy levels, which is good not just for your muscles but also your brain. Increased blood flow in your brain cells means that they are alive and happy, because they are getting the oxygen and glucose they need. The result is better brain function which is what you will help you feel more alert and think clearer during the day. Goodbye, brain fog. Now, you can ace that next project.
IMPROVED LACTIC ACID DRAINAGE & RECOVERY AFTER EXERTION
Those patterned pressure changes that occur when you experience the CVAC process will give your lymphatic system a much-needed massage. The CVAC process will help your body more efficiently drain the waste products and decrease inflammation, which will improve your recovery time after workouts.
ENHANCED ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE & INCREASED STRENGTH
Better oxygen utilization will help to increase your energy levels and mitochondrial density, which will help you to firm up your muscles more so that you can be in your best shape. With stronger bones and greater energy output, there’s no stopping you from achieving your biggest goals. These new improvements to your body will enable you to work out longer at a higher intensity without getting winded.
The CVAC process is a great way to improve your conditioning, so that you can fully equipped to meet life’s daily stressors without a sweat. By improving your internal balance and overall well-being, you will learn how to not just survive, but thrive!
