The new and improved second release – the Elevation Altitude Simulation Mask 2.0 can be used for low-oxygen exercise, hypoxic training, high-intensity anaerobic threshold training as well as focused programmes and routines such as interval breathing recovery protocol and the thoracic diaphragm technique. Indeed, altitude mask training will change the way you train generally, providing you with insight into the importance of oxygen and breathing as part of your regimen.
Training Equipment Par Excellence
Smaller, lightweight and a more comfortable fit, version 2.0 of the Elevation Altitude Simulation Mask is supplied with six resistance caps, three base pieces with flux valve plungers, a silicon training mask with neoprene sleeve and head strap as well as clear, concise and comprehensive instructions and workout literature.
And guess what? You can even accessorise your mask in a variety of colours!
Also known as a hypoxicator system, the Elevation Altitude Mask 2.0 works to stimulate adaptation of the cardiovascular system by means of the provision of hypoxic air, in the process triggering compensation mechanisms.
The goal of altitude simulation mask-based intermittent hypoxic training is to derive benefits in physical performance, endurance and stamina, resulting in an overall experience of wellbeing through improved oxygen metabolism.
The underlying biological adaptation mechanisms, so long as they are mild, non-damaging and short-term (minutes) hypoxic stresses (also called – intermittent hypoxic training) are complex but form part of normal physiology processes so they are not harmful. Interestingly studies have demonstrated that hypoxic air therapy may increase recovery speeds and endurance of spinal cord injuries.
