CasePerformance's Mission Statement
Here at CasePerformance we strive to bridge the gap between research and human performance, while acknowledging that the real world results obtained by the athlete/client and coach are the ULTIMATE measure of success.
Knowledge is worthless unless properly applied to your training goals. This pertains to research completed in the gym as well as the lab. Unfortunately, by the time research has been filtered down to the average individual, it has been polluted by manufacturer propaganda, manipulated by those with personal agendas or glossed over by popular media.
At CasePerformance, this nonsense is sidetracked as we bring the research straight to your front door. We provide you with free access to our article database as well as personalized training and nutrition programs that provide results. Furthermore, we teach you how to teach yourself in our Consumer Savvy article section. As you'll see, the only personal agenda you'll find at CasePerformance is the one that starts with you and ends with your success!

The main benefit attributed to xenon is its ability to enhance EPO production, thus enhancing one's aerobic capacity (VO2max). Besides boosting EPO levels, research has shown xenon to induce euphoria as well as analgesia. Additionally, as reported in the press, based off Russian documents, it may enhance testosterone production. Got your attention yet? OK, read the article!
