Boost Oxygen Testimonial From A Pro Climber

We often come across testimonial videos, articles and feedback from people who have been helped by our Boost Oxygen portable 95% pure supplemental oxygen.  We wanted to share this Boost Oxygen testimonial from Sara, who operates – a website all about climbing, including tips, tricks and gear review for beginners and pro climbers.

Sara shared her experience below using Boost Oxygen for the first time to help her during her climbs!


Using Boost Oxygen while climbing

Sara writes in the review:

Prevented Pumping

“Getting pumped is when lactic acid build-up happens in your forearms and – lactic acid build-up is a result of not having enough oxygen in your blood. A common way climbers deal with this is by placing their arms down toward the ground so gravity can help circulate new blood from your heart to your forearms and hands. Unfortunately, this is not very effective and climbers tend to be too pumped to keep climbing even after doing this.

Supplemented Oxygen – Boost Oxygen

This was an interesting experiment for me – I took canisters of Boost Oxygen that are meant to be consumed while exercising and used it while climbing. After each route, I’d inhale a gust of oxygen from the canister. If the route seemed like it was going to be especially powerful or require a lot of energy, I’d also inhale oxygen before getting on the route.

I was happily surprised at what happened during the climbing sessions when I used this method.

Due to adding oxygen into my system, it was easier to get oxygen to my forearms and therefore prevented the lactic acid build-up. It did such a good job, in fact, that I didn’t get pumped while climbing.

During the first few sessions of this experiment, I thought maybe part of it was a placebo. However, after repeating the experiment over the course of multiple sessions, I realized that the oxygen was, in fact, the factor that prevented the pump.”
