Like    most of the readers may expect, we are  not  very happy with what we learned  years back . It was great at the time  to have some kind of guidance, but as  so many ideas  time has changed  and with it the ability to  workout  much more individual  and much  more  with feed backs telling us  what we  do  instead of  hoping we may  do something.
 What I mean is:
  1  rep  load  to find  your training intensity is similar like a VO2 max test. We have a hopefully good idea of  what 100 % may or may not be  and than us again a calculator and hope it works. We have no control  on what we really do.
 Nirs changes  this  and with MOXY  we can now afford it in a gym  for personal training  and or  for group workouts.
  So here  the past :

 LOAD 40-50% 1RM
REPS 10-10-10
REST 90"

LOAD 50-60% 1RM
SETS 3-4
REPS 8-12
REST 45"
 This is a review  on a suggestion we had once on this forum.

  Great idea bu  very uncontrolled and  no feedback, whether it is working besides  the  performance. So if we improve  we are happy , if not we do not know why.
 What we  do with MOXY is.
  1. Find your  base line workload.
 2. Depending on your  idea or believe or  knowledge  choose the intensity  you plan  to use.
 a)  Strength workout  with no hypoxia.
 b) strength workout  with  local hypoxia
 c) strength workout  with general  hypoxia
  For this information and feedback you use SmO2  trends.
 Here   case studies  for each of this 3 goals.

 Now this is not just true  for strength workouts  but in general  for short  high intensity loads.

Here  an example I showed in another thread   from the  USA Army group  from Fort Bragg.

The  example below is an " interval workout " 3  wingate tests  where you can see, that we   not reach a  local  nor  do we reach a general hypoxia  but we  avoid the local    dark green  hypoxia situation thanks to a shift of  O2  from a non involved muscle  upper body   to the leg  to    " refuel  the  energy  storage.
 Interesting is the     drop in SmO2    of the arms  just at the moment where  we stop  the load  see red line.

Now in strength workouts  we  have  an additional great feedback  on intensity of the load.
 This is the  trend in blood  flow  (   blood flow reaction.
  again 3  options to make it simple.
 1. Compression load
2. Compression load  with a   additional  venous occlusion.
 3. Compression load  with an additional increase to reach  venous  and than arterial occlusion.

Some additional information. The lighter  colour  is always a  non involved muscle as a feedback to see,  when  and   how the  hypoxia  moves into the systemic level.
