Melbourne, Victoria â€“ It is the old adage and we have heard it a thousand times. â€œIt’s what’s on the inside that counts.â€ Now there is a product that can help build the inside and if the old adage is anything to go by, the Elevation Training Mask will become part of every athletes training routine.
The Elevation Training Mask simulates the effects of high altitude training, enabling conditioning and increased lung capacity by creating pulmonary resistance, whilst strengthening the diaphragm and inter-costal muscles. This makes breathing easier and more efficient.
The original Elevation Training Mask, released back in 2007, was a full-face mask that was embraced by the now very popular Mixed Martial Artists (MMA). The new version known as Elevation Training Mask 2.0 now has a comfortable silicone mask with a neoprene sleeve. Its design allows the user more freedom to enjoy the advantages that altitude training provides at a very affordable price.
â€œIt’s really simple science. The patent pending Training Mask helps to condition the lungs by creating pulmonary resistance and strengthening the diaphragm. By increasing resistance you are forced to take fuller, deeper breaths and as your body adapts your lungs will be trained to utilize the available oxygen more efficientlyâ€. Says Casey Danford, President Training Mask LLC
Mr. Danford went on to say. â€œYou don’t necessarily need to be exercising to benefit from using the Training Mask as there are some excellent breathing exercises that you can do while sitting down watching TV, or tapping away at the computer. Perfect for athletes nursing an injury or for anyone who wants increased energy for daily livingâ€.
Ironman World Champion Pete Jacobs was so excited about the effects he experienced with the Elevation Training Mask that he met with the developers in America and now has a financial interest in the company.
Jacobs, who has been using the mask for a while now, stated â€œWhat excites me most about the Elevation Training Mask is that I can focus specifically on my breathing and take the load off my major muscles, which is particularly valuable when they are fatigued. I even wear the Training Mask while doing the chores around home or replying to emails. It’s great to feel like I am still â€˜training’ while not training.â€
