Muscle Oxygen Training blog index

Blog Purpose: To discuss the use, benefits, and pitfalls of using a muscle oxygen sensor in both endurance and resistance exercise.  There will be both literature review as well as my anecdotal experience using a BSX sensor.  Since little to no published peer reviewed study has shown significant benefits in training or race performance, the advantage of using a sensor for training/race should not be assumed as a given.  Unfortunately, the manufactures of these units have misleading, unproven assertions as part of their websites and marketing material.
My intention is to provide a more objective look at the usefulness and perhaps even examine other "non advertised"  use case scenarios.
Emphasis on real time performance monitoring will be focused upon.
