Anyone use a gas mask for running, specifically a training mask (trainingmask.com) I'm looking for something like that, but it costs $80. Is there something better or the same for cheaper, or is that the one to get?

It's like breathing through a straw. Aww fuck it, throw on a vest with a couple Level IV Armored Ballistic plates and go for it

same reason athletes do high-altitude training.

same kinda effect. your lungs work harder on it, therefore you learn how to take in more oxygen and you breath more efficiently.
I don't think this is true...

When your body adapts to higher altitude, it produces more red blood cells which carry oxygen from your lungs to everywher else. This effect happens when your body releases erythropoietin in to the system, which occurs aprox 15 hours after altitude exposure. Being so, I would think you would need to be in this mask for 15 hours to gain any effect.

The best way to achieve physical performance (if altitude training) would be to "live high, train low". This combination offers the greatest benefits (increased VO2max). You could make your own hyperbaric chamber, but thats fuckin expensive/weird.

Yes, that's the best way to do it - but not everybody can.

If you read their info - they explain the science behind the mask, and it's very similar

I wouldn't be wearing this at the gym. I'd just wear it when I go on runs around the neighborhood with my weighted vest, looking like a fucking terrorist.

I remember reading about sleep chambers that pump excess nitrogen into the room when you sleep. :bowdown:

Despite needing to wear the mask for 15hr (citation? believable, the websites citations were complete shit) if it is making it harder to breathe it is forcing your lungs to work harder and makes you more mentally willing to push your body past its oxygen supply.

Live high train low? Hawaii!

I skimmed over it, does it make it more difficult to pull air in or does it recycle some of your exhalation to include extra CO2?
