Elevation Training Mask
Posted 24 December 2014 - 02:54 AM
i know that it is maining marketed towards mma and cardio focused athletes but could this have much use in a bodybuilding scenario?
i'm thinking maybe i could cut down on cardio sessions and burn more calories in less time, or some other benefits that might indirectly build muscle or vascularity. can anyone shed some light on these theories?

I was stationed so place that was 6200ft and workin out sucked ass. For the week or two after leaving working out at sea level was awesome but it does not last lobster than that.
In short the mask is a waist of time and makes you look retarded.

Strength training it may be a waste, but bodybuilding it's actually beneficial. I moved from 1300 ft above sea level to 5500 four years ago. It takes 4 months for your body to acclimate ave they are brutal. But after that it's great!

They do not simulate high altitudes. The only way to receive the physiological benefits of training at a high altitude is to actually train at a high altitude. This is because the amount of oxygen that enters your blood is dependent on the air pressure and not the size of the hole you're breathing through.

Total waste of money. As already said, you have to live in the environment and not just have on an apparatus for an hour. There's some merit to the live high, train low theory, but even that has been inconclusive.
