The Moxy Webinar Series

Moxy Device

Vibration Therapy for Exercise Induced Muscle Damage

This webinar will be presented by Stuart Percival from Sunsport Coaching in Manchester, UK.  Stuart will share research on using vibrating rollers to relieve exercise induced muscle soreness and how he used Moxy as a part of that research.  This is a great research example of how to use Moxy to measure objective physiologic changes in what would otherwise be highly subjective testing.

HIIT Protocol Pilot Data

Dr. Bellar is the Director and holds the Patrick Rutherford / BoRSF Endowed Professorship in Education in the School of Kinesiology at the University of Louisiana. Dr. Bellar will be sharing the data that they’ve recently collected on “Non-involved muscles” during exercise as well as some pilot data on a HITT protocol and changes in Lactate and blood pH.

Pattern of MOXY Monitor Results versus Metabolic Output During High Intensity Cycling

The Moxy monitor has recently been purchased by military units to incorporate as a physical training tool. Since the Moxy monitor offers a unique portable technology unlike its larger predecessors, we aimed to determine if these innovative monitors measure muscle oxygen saturation levels that follow the same pattern as other physiological measures such as oxygen output, heart rate, and lactic acid. We recruited six endurance trained participants to complete a VO2 max test on the cycle ergometer followed by 6 high intensity intervals at 125% of their VO2 test maximum wattage. Moxy monitors were worn on each quad with a third on the deltoid for a control. We measured lactic acid following each of the intervals. SmO2 was plotted versus VO2 and heart rate to show that muscle oxygen saturation measured by the Moxy monitor was at its lowest point when VO2 and heart rate were at their highest points. Likewise, we plotted SmO2 versus lactic acid for each interval. Overall, our results showed that the Moxy monitor responded to changes in oxygen levels that corresponded to other physiological measures, indicating its promise as an exercise training tool.

Clint Friesen presents on Red Bull Project Endurance

Clink Friesen describes the testing that he’s done with Red Bull Project Endurance.  Red Bull puts on a camp for several of its endurance athletes once a year to help them learn more about their physiology.  One of the hallmarks of the camp is that the athletes are tested at sea level in Death Valley and then tested at altitude on Mammoth Mountain to see how that affects their performance.  Clint comments on how athletes with different limiting systems respond differently to altitude.
