EWOT Machine - Everything You Need to Know
Exercise With Oxygen Training (EWOT) is becoming more popular as an alternative wellness option. EWOT machines provide oxygen-rich air to help improve health, wellness, fitness performance, and even endurance in users. Discover how an EWOT machine can help you get healthy, stay fit, and feel better.
What Is Exercise With Oxygen Training (EWOT)?
Exercise With Oxygen Training (EWOT) is a type of physical activity that uses oxygen-enriched air to increase wellness and health. EWOT uses special machines, called EWOT machines (or an EWOT system), which deliver a mix of oxygen and air while the user exercises. This oxygen-enriched air helps improve aerobic capacity, endurance, and aerobic efficiency of the user improving their overall fitness.
Breaking Down the Benefits of an EWOT Machine
An EWOT machine can provide you with numerous benefits that regular exercise alone cannot. These benefits include reduces inflammation, increased energy and metabolism, detoxification, increased cognitive performance and memory, increased sports performance, improved cardiovascular health, reduced muscle fatigue, and increased oxygen utilization. Additionally, EWOT machines can help reduce the effort of a workout and speed up recovery after an intense workout allowing you to get back to your normal schedule quicker.
What Equipment Do You Need With an EWOT Machine?
The most inexpensive EWOT setup uses a 5 lpm oxygen concentrator to fill the reservoir. If you do not have multiple users planning on using the EWOT machine during the same time period, a 5 lpm concentrator will be your most economical solution for an EWOT machine.
While some manufacturers sell rubber bands to squeeze the reservoir or “contrast” systems that offer the ability to switch to low-oxygen mode. These features are not very useful for most people. Contrast really only benefits people seeking to get that last 1% of performance improvement, and is not a great tool for those with chronic health conditions. For those that do seek to try contrast training, you can mimic the benefits by holding your breath for 5 – 10 seconds while exercising.
Setting Up and Using An EWOT Machine
Setting up your EWOT machine is relatively simple—simply attach the oxygen tubing between your concentrator and EWO reservoir, hok up the hose to the reservoir and place the stopper in the open end of the hose. Turn on the oxygen concentrator machine. Allow the reservoir to fill with oxygen. Once full, remove the stopper from the hose, plug the hose into the mask valve intake port, and place the mask on your face. Depending on your health level, you can work up to a 15-minute cardio session while breathing from the mask. This will allow you to begin breathing oxygen-enriched air which immediately increases the partial pressure of oxygen in your blood and helps bring oxygen deeper into your tissues. Be sure to finish with a cool down period so you don’t experience any dizziness after using the machine.
Creating a Successful Workout Plan with an EWOT Machine
Now that you know the basics of getting started with an EWOT machine, it’s important to create a workout plan that will help you get the most out of your sessions. It’s important to note that starting EWOT too quick sometimes causes a “detox reaction” which can make you feel unwell. To avoid this, you should start slowly until you know how your body will react. Aim to build up to 15-20 minutes of exercise each session at a steady intensity level. While using an EWOT machine daily is perfectly fine, we recommend working up to at least 3 times per week to get maximum benefit. Many of the benefits will cumulate over time – so the more consistent you are, the more benefits you will see.
