The most important aspect of training and exercise science is how we produce usable energy (ATP) for working muscles. The many assumptions associated with the production and consumption of ATP are often the driving factors in performance diagnostics, training planning, and training guidance. The transportation and utilization of oxygen is the determining factor in ATP production. This recognition led to the famous differentiation between a so-called aerobic and anaerobic energy pathway by Archibald Hill and Otto Meyerhoff (earning them a Nobel Prize).
The article cited below shows that Muscle Oxygenation effects anabolic hormone function. Considering the purpose of strength training, this becomes extremely vital information. Would it not be advantageous to be able to measure and monitor muscle oxygenation during resistance training to maximize anabolic hormone function? SmO2 measured by the MOXY Sensor could be the tool that a modern resistance trainer needs to maximize effectiveness and efficiency.
