Warnings and Safety Precautions About XPT Workouts
As with any form of physical exercise, safety precautions must be taken to ensure the health and safety of all participants. This is particularly important during intense breath hold exercises and any type of water training.
Many breathing techniques cause a significant change in blood gases, which can alter your perception of the need to breathe, leading to blackouts. This can be extremely dangerous if performing exercises before water training.
DO NOT perform extreme breath holds, superventilation techniques, or any breathing methods prior to entering the water. Always perform XPT Water Training exercises under proper supervision, and with a partner for safety.
Breath hold exercises are only suited to people with good health and fitness levels. If you are in any doubt, please refrain from practicing any breath hold exercises until you receive the all-clear from a qualified medical doctor.
The methods in this [manual] can profoundly improve your health as well as your sports performance, but can be quite dangerous. We strongly encourage using a partner at all times. We also recommend pushing yourself, but extreme discomfort or suffering greatly increases risk and may not enhance outcomes. We encourage you to push your limits, but no need to break a world record on your first attempt. Your goal should be to get slightly better, often. Major jumps in exposure (exercise, cold, etc.) often lead to bad outcomes, so progress appropriately.
These recovery modalities are only suited to persons with good health and fitness levels. If you are in any doubt, please refrain until you receive the all clear from a qualified medical doctor.
