This Week's Most Popular Facebook Post:
Why do I train with a Training Mask? Cuz it freakin’ works:Chatham, et al. report reduced levels of breathlessness, and increase in predicted (not measured) VO2 max in healthy, but untrained subjects after 10 weeks and 30 Tests of Incremental Respiratory Endurance (TIRE) set at 80% of peak.Volianitis et al. 2001 found an increase in the distance those of the 14 female competitive rowers who had been randomly assigned to the active treatment covered in a 5 min all-out rowing test, as well as an increase in time-trial performance after 11 weeks of twice daily inspiratory muscle training on a specifically designed device.Romer et al. 2002 observed that inspiratory muscle training attenuates the perceptual response to maximal incremental exercise and a marginally higher increase in 20 and 40km time-trial performance in 16 healthy trained male road cyclists.Enright et al. 2006 observed intermittent hypoxic training (IMT) increases "exercise capacity in people who are healthy", but previously untrained in response to an 8-week program of IMT set at 80% of maximal effort.The list goes on, but hopefully, you get the idea. It’s worth adding to your protocol. If you already do yoga, sauna, body weight workouts, walks, hikes, etc…just wear it. Easy hack. Sure, not quite the same as training with a $2000 hypoxic air generator, but at about $70 a heckuva lot cheaper. At www.trainingmask.com the code “GREEN1” snags you a 20% discount. Enjoy. Haters gonna hate, but I use it.
