Elevation Training Mask

#1 Postby Spyda » Fri Jul 05, 2013 4:14 am

I started seeing these elevation mask around a lot so decided to try it. This blog is a 10 week study on if this will it increase athletic performance. I'm now in the second week of training without the Mask with my runs scheduled on Sunday morning. This is a very exciting blog form me to write now that I'm on my Vegan Diet. I have no idea what the results are going to be. How would I have done on a non Vegan diet I don't know, but I think that eating this way will help me make it through these grueling ahead

So Like I mentioned earlier I'm in going into my third week of Training. I run every Sunday<---RunKeeper.com Profile and do least 13 miles. This is part of my training criteria for "Train Like Bane,"coupled with a max deadlift weight training program. I also will be recording my heart rate and VO2 max % during exercise. At the end of 10 weeks I hope to uncover what this training mask exactly improves. I'm going to also be logging my meals and workouts through the course of this training.

Is there anyone out there that have used this Image
I would love to get your opinion what the effects was on your training. I talked to one guy he told me that he went from not being able to run 3 miles and after 3 weeks of training he was able to run 15! Damn! I'm not saying I believe that but I would love to get some Vegan perspective on it.

Thanks everyone for reading!

I used to regularly have simulated altitude training and it was great, I think it gave me a bit extra and I slept like a baby while I was having it done! I used to get an initial block of 4 weeks where over that time they would drop my oxygen SAT level down to around 70% from memory, then I'd go back for 2 week top-ups.

Interested to hear how you go!

Nice what equipment did you use to change the SAT level. and test it. Like I explain in my blog I'm not sure if this changes the body ability to absorb O2. But with this mask I'm sure it will make it difficult to breathe. I have no idea what that will improve. That's the question that I'm trying to answer. It would be interesting to see how that would line up next to a real chamber.

Thanks for reading!
