As the season begins to ramp up I've fielded several questions on Moxy and using Smo2 data in training and even racing. I've put together a few examples of testing and some practical applications of using a Moxy to better guide your training.
Moxy is a device which uses NIRS technology to measure Muscle oxygen saturation (Smo2) on a scale from 0 to 100. It also measures blood volume in the muscle which can help determine blood flow in and out of the muscle. This real time physiological feedback measures supply and demand of oxygen in a working muscle.
For the time crunched athlete who is looking for that final 5% this tool can help guide that by giving you a live look at what is occurring in your working muscles.
