A runner’s must have

One day, I’m watching this series from UFC called the The Ultimate Fighter. Of course who doesn’t know about UFC. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the largest Mixed Martial Arts promotion company in the world, which hosts most of the top-ranked fighters in the sport and produces events worldwide. As I was saying  The Ultimate Fighter (TUF ) show features professional MMA fighters living together in Las Vegas, Nevada, and follows them as they train and compete against each other for a prized contract with the UFC. What caught my attention is this one fighter wearing a mask while training. This made me curious and wonder what is that for. So I search and found out that this mask has more to offer. It improves your cardio level, it helps condition your lungs and more. Great product for runner’s like me.

You walk and run every day without thinking about your breathing or the ability to breathe, it’s taken for granted. Imagine, that one day, fatigue and plateau’s were a thing of that past with the Training Mask that day is NOW!

Elevation Training Mask mimics the effects of High Altitude Training. When elite athletes want to improve their performance they go to high altitude levels to train. When they come back to sea level they perform much stronger, faster, and have increased endurance.
Training Mask makes your work out more efficient allowing you to take your work out from 60 minutes to 20 minutes. From the average daily walker to the marathon runner, Training Mask appeals to every athlete who wants to improve their overall health and performance.
What is the Elevation Training Mask? Elevation Training Mask is a patent pending “Resistance Training Device” that helps condition the lungs by creating pulmonary resistance and strengthening the diaphragm.
Elevation Training Mask will help you regulate your breathing, increase lung stamina, lung capacity, oxygen efficiency and increase overall mental focus. Training Mask can help your over all performance in all sports and daily living
Elevation Training Mask helps! By condition the lungs and creating pulmonary resistance, your diaphragm is strengthened, surface area and elasticity in the alveoli is increased. Elevation Training Mask will help get your breathing under control and help with lung stamina, increase lung capacity, oxygen efficiency and increase over all mental focus. Training Mask can be used to make you become a better athlete in all sports and daily living.

Our multi-level resistance system reduces air flow through our patent pending flux valve system. Training Mask promotes increased lung capacity by forcing you to inhale fuller deeper breaths. When your body adapts to the resistance your lungs will be trained to take deeper breaths and use oxygen more efficiently. A short explanation of how this works is simple. When you breath against resistance the lining in the lungs essentially stretches out allowing the alveoli’s surface area to become “stretched” thus in return allows for more blood flow to the alveoli for more (oxygen transportation). When you increase “surface area” you increase red blood cell count that will be able to carry more oxygen out to the extremities.

Why would i want to use Training Mask?
  • Increased lung capacity
  • Increased anaerobic thresholds
  • Increased oxygen efficiency
  • Increased energy Production
  • Increased Mental and physical stamina increase
  • Increased Mental Focus gets better

 

TRAINING MASK AND ULTRA RUNNERS

Better Breathing: Elevation Training Mask mimics the effect of High Altitude Training. When top athletes want to improve in their performance, they go to high altitude levels to train, and when they come back to sea level to race, they are performing much stronger, faster, and have more endurance due to the type of training they have been doing prior to the event.

With resisted oxygen consumption the human body changes in several ways. The production of red blood cells and new capillaries (small blood vessels) increase the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. An important natural hormone involved in this process is EPO (erythropoietin).

Increased Diaphram Strength: Training Mask works hard by increasing Diaphram strength and muscle strength literally from head to toe. A regular work out with the Training Mask soon becomes a more difficult one. The burn and intensity of your lungs becomes apparent when using the Training Mask. Increasing cardio while stengthing the diaphram are just a few of the great benifits of using the Training Mask.

Improved Circulation: The Science behind the Training Mask helps to improve circulation by efficiently moving oxygenated blood to the body’s cells.
Cardiovascular Conditioning: Training Mask practice can provide cardiovascular benefits by lowering resting heart rate, increasing endurance and improving oxygen uptake during exercise. Great results from Training Mask and Cardiovascular conditioning.

Training Mask Relaxation and breathing Techniques while Ultra Running

Tension in muscles hinders running form and efficiency and causes you to use extra energy to fuel antagonistic muscle groups (those not used in running). Aim to keep muscles in the neck, face, shoulders and hands limp and relaxed as you run. Use progressive relaxation routines before training runs and races to work out tension and enter a relaxed state. In these routines, you tense particular muscle groups one at a time for 15 to 30 seconds and then release them, working from head to foot or doing the extremities first and then trunk muscles. Start first with a minute or two of deep belly breathing prior to any progressive relaxation routine to quiet your mind and fully oxygenate your body. Continue breathing deeply as you tense and then release each muscle group. Relaxation exercises should also be completed prior to any visualization routines. You need to be in a positive, relaxed frame of mind before starting imagery work. Choose a quiet area of your home and do five or ten minutes of belly breathing combined with shoulder shrugs and maybe some short affirmations. You can also use relaxation routines and deep breathing in the last day or two before a race, for a few minutes before you go to sleep, to reduce anxiety and help you get into a deep sleep.

  1. Cool man. I’m an mma and wrestling junkie also. You know a cheaper alternative to this with the same effects? wear a mouthpiece. that’s what we wear during our conditioning exercises.

    Hi my fine looking athletes. I have just started using this and it has certainly been a great experience so far. I will keep you updated on how I go over the next 6 weeks. Check out below the info on the elevation mask.
