Moxy Academy's comprehensive tutorial on Muscle Oxygen Physiology covers the science of performance in a five lesson class. Each lesson is segmented into two sections. The first covers the physiology and the second dives into the practical application.
Lesson 1 - What is SmO2? Reviews the physiology of hemoglobin and myoglobin and the concept of supply and demand for oxygen.
Lesson 2 - Introduction to THb. Details the measurement of THb and the four types of THb reactions.
Lesson 3 - Bioenergetics. Explains the Modern Theory of energy pathways and how to apply Bioenergetics to training.
Lesson 4 - Oxygen Delivery Response. A technical discussion covering the delay in response from the delivery system.
Lesson 5 - Muscle VO2. Using SmO2 and THb, this lesson explains how to infer aspects about the individual muscle VO2.
Access to a Moxy Muscle Oxygen Sensor is required to fully experience the demonstration portions of the course.
