The Elevation high altitude Training Mask simulates high altitude training conditions and its effects, so, when sportsmen aspire to improve or enhance performance, they adopt this strategy. When they return to lower altitudes, in particular, mean sea level (MSL), their performance and endurance levels are vastly improved.
Training Mask Technology
The Elevation Training Mask enhances the efficiencies of an athlete’s workout and reduces the time required to achieve the same desired effect. Training duration can be reduced by, for instance 60-70%. The benefits of training mask technology are by no means limited to star sportspeople – amateur or ordinary fitness regimes can benefit from the fitness mask’s enhancements as well, improving overall health and performance, no matter the extent of one’s training.
The main benefit of the Elevation training mask is that it increases efficiency levels of your fitness routine. The mask is a patented “Resistance Training Device” that assists in conditioning lungs by generating pulmonary resistance and strengthening the diaphragm – common reactions in an acclimatisation process. In the process the Elevation Training Mask assists in regulating inspiration and aspiration, increasing “lung stamina” and capacity, improves oxygen efficiency and enhances mental focus. In this process, the diaphragm is strengthened and the in the alveoli – the oxygen intake structures in the lungs – the surface area and elasticity is maximised. Elevation Training Mask assists trainees in focusing on regulating breathing, in addition experiencing increased lung capacity through increased stamina.
The way the acclimatisation simulation works is by deployment of a multi-level resistance system which regulates – actually reduces air flow availability through a “flux valve system”. This compels athletes to inhale fuller deeper breaths, thereby promoting increased lung capacity. As the body adapts to this resistance, one becomes more conscious of one’s breathing, deeper breaths are taken and oxygen used more efficiently. This also increases red blood cell count in the lungs because the alveoli now present a greater area for oxygen uptake.
