Oxygen deprivation training

I got the idea from this:
http://www.gymjones.com/schedule.php?date=20080601 (wfs)

Basically, the idea is that you restrict your oxygen flow in order to force your body to do more with less. I've heard of people doing this (Tito Ortiz comes to mind), and I thought it would be interesting to try. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a gimmick, or are there benefits?

Re: Oxygen deprivation training

Yes, I use this technique for every workout. It's called asthma.

Seriously though, I'm guessing they are trying to mimic high altitude training.

Re: Oxygen deprivation training

I'm going to try it today. I am suspicious about it's benefits, and worried about it's risks. However, I can see how this might work if it can be done consistently. I'll report back later tonight (assuming I don't die).

Forget the fancy stuff. Just row or jog with a snorkel.

Re: Oxygen deprivation training

Some of the firefighters do CF workouts with their respiratory gear on as well... if you're a FF and looking for some options.
