Michael Jackson was using the hyperbaric chamber.

Also what happened to “oxygen bars”?

Another aspect /level of 'education' that is often lacking in taijiquan or qigong (yangsheng technologies).
Looking beyond qi and other 'vague' (I luv chee ;D ) notion that is often hard to transmit to those who play daoyin whethere fitness, health or "longevity".

For example, the 'esoteric sounding' tendon stretching mechanics per yangsheng quasi Daoist references has more to do with muscle enhanmcing dynamcs (waidan!) which lack a base in what is termed TCM and therefore this lack creates a knowledge gap that often obfuscates further study.

see note(s) under "Muscle Function" then google "type 1 muscle fibers" and "type II muscle fibers"

Excellent article!
"Accelerated telomere shortening is linked with numerous age-related chronic diseases and risk factors.202–210 On the other hand, there is increasing evidence supporting an association between habitual physical exercise, particularly aerobic exercise, and longer leukocyte telomere length.211–217 Leukocyte telomere length is also positively associated with cardiorespiratory fitness (expressed as VO2max),213,218,219 which, in turn, is associated with lower CVD and all-cause mortality.220 Long-term aerobic exercise can modulate leukocyte telomere length as well as the network of proteins that interact with telomeres, through activation and induction of telomerase enzyme activity (mediated by human telomerase reverse transcriptase [TERT]) and the shelterin complex (or telosome).217 In effect, TERT mRNA expression is up-regulated in leukocytes after exercise.221 Exercise also regulates the microRNAs (miRNAs) that control the downstream expression of genes involved in telomere homeostasis.221 The association between physical exercise and telomere length could also be due to lower oxidative stress and inflammation, exercise-induced regulation of telomeric genes, or a complex interplay between these processes.221,222 The effects of exercise on skeletal muscle tissue telomeres have been less studied compared with leukocytes, and the results are less conclusive.223,224"
