Boost VO2 Max For Energy Gains

During a race, running out of energy can be a serious problem for all runners. The most important factor in predictors of athletic performance is VO2 max and running economy.

VO2 is a measure of how fit an athlete is. It expresses the volume of oxygen a body consumes per minute. Runners with a high VO2 max absorb more oxygen: They can run faster and farther. 

Economic runners burn less oxygen at a given pace: They’re frugal with oxygen use. They, too, can run farther and race faster. The best 5K, 10K, marathon and triathlon performances are run by athletes with high VO2 max and good running economy.

EPO-Boost, a running supplement, dramatically increases VO2 max and running economy, the most important predictors of running performance.

What Does VO2 Max mean?

VO2 max, or maximal oxygen uptake capacity, is the amount of oxygen we can absorb into our cells in one minute while working at full capacity. It’s a measure of fitness expressed in milliliters per kilogram per minute (i.e., aerobic capacity).

In one way, VO2 max is similar to the size of the gas tank in one’s car" The bigger the tank (VO2 max) the farther the car can go. As an example, if you had to choose between two cars to drive a long distance, one with a gas tank twice the size of the other’s, which car would you pick? EPO-Boost increases the size of your “gas tank” so you can go run farther and race faster.

What is Running Economy?

Running economy is the energy required during running at a given submaximal velocity. It’s often expressed as the rate of oxygen consumption per distance covered (ml/kg/km). Those who are able to consume less oxygen while running at a given velocity are said to have a better running economy. Determination of running economy is carried out by measuring oxygen consumption at a steady state within one’s aerobic range.

Running economy is similar to the fuel economy of a person’s car. Again, running economy is a measure of how much (or little) oxygen the runner uses for a given, submaximal speed. In theory, two runners could have the same maximal capacity for oxygen use (VO2 max), but the one who is more economical at submaximal speeds is likely to be the better runner.

EPO-Boost Natural Blood Builder dramatically increases VO2 max and running economy. EPO-Boost ingredients have been shown to significantly increase VO2 max and running economy in university athletes. You will see huge gains in endurance; we guarantee it! By increasing endurance, EPO-Boost lets you train harder and run faster and farther.

Try EPO-BOOST risk-free now, and fill up your energy tank for your next 5k, 10k, marathon or triathlon.
