THE S.M.T. SYSTEM AND THE SPORT ACTIVITY
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the compound used by the body to obtain the energy necessary for various biological processes. During physical activity, as metabolic demands increase, a greater production of ATP becomes necessary through the activation of more auxiliary systems. But, if on the one hand all this allows for greater energy production, on the other hand it causes an increase in lactate production: (the more intense the exercise, the greater the production of lactic acid).
When the rate of lactic acid synthesis exceeds the body's ability to metabolize it, there is an abrupt increase in its blood concentration. This refers to the so-called 'anaerobic threshold' and contributes to the ability to sustain intense and prolonged exercise. But the trigger point for anaerobic metabolism is the point beyond which carbon dioxide production, ventilation and lactic acid levels increase rapidly, resulting in the onset of muscle fatigue. Anaerobic metabolism is less efficient than aerobic metabolism because oxygen binds with free radicals in the body and is therefore less available. A lower amount of free radicals would lead, therefore, to a greater availability of oxygen, an increase in energy and a decrease in lactic acid. All this can lead to a better resistance to the effort and an increase in performance.
is able, (intercepting organic molecules), to make the inhaled oxygen more available and useful to activate aerobic processes, to block the free radicals produced by physical effort and to release oxygen useful to activate aerobic processes, increasing energy production and decreasing lactic acid that can be metabolized quickly. To conclude, therefore, the results obtained with SMT Technology are:
- Lactic acidosis reduction
- Reduced recovery time
- Reduced sense of fatigue
- General performance improvement
This leads to a consequent decrease in recovery time for athletes and is very useful in giving the athlete better endurance to effort and increased performance.
