Oxygen debt

Greetings, I just wanted to cast a thought out there not just about oxygen debt but the payment thereof. Through some of my personal experience, I've tried paying my oxygen debt just before a major hill or incline as opposed to paying during and after. While approaching said hill I deepen and increase the frequency of my breaths and "flood?" my blood with extra available oxygen, it really buffers the breathlessness when powering up a hill. Its essentially hyperventilating but it does work .I've never seen anything written about "when" you can pay before or after, ever tried it? comments?

    Interesting idea....so you simply hyperventilate in the lead up to a hill or a sprint?
