Respiratory
Training

Loading a muscle group is what people do at the gym by lifting weights to get stronger, faster, and fitter. Applying a load to your muscles can be achieved several different ways. Whether it be with weights, friction, tension, etc. TrainingMask® breathing exercise devices were engineered to apply variable levels of load to the respiratory muscles by controlling air flow pass through; this increases tension on the breathing muscles which makes them stronger and more efficient. But does better breathing really matter? Will breathing better help me reach my fitness goals?

The answer is YES. Think about a two-mile run for example. Typically, when you start to slow down it’s not because your legs are tired, it’s because your breathing so hard (general fatigue.). Using the TrainingMask® in your workouts will decrease the impact of fatigue in your training sessions by increasing your threshold potential, activity strength at exhaustion, and stamina. Stay stronger longer and reach your goals faster with TrainingMask®.

Training Mask
Difference

The TrainingMask® will give you a substantial edge in your workouts. The TrainingMask® is a tool that is designed to improve your respiratory conditioning, strength, and power. Oftentimes the only thing that separates someone who is really fit from someone who is getting in shape is how much work they can do and tolerate during an exercise session. If you can do more work and sustain that work load longer, you will be that much closer to fitness or athletic excellence. TrainingMask® will give you the stamina, endurance, and workout capacity you need to stay the course and get results.

Performance Breathing Trainer

Training Mask 3.0 is designed to bring performance breathing to your training sessions via the multi-patented NXT FORC3 Air Flow Platform. NXT FORC3 technology features on the fly air flow adjustment which allows you to increase or decrease the load on your breathing muscles based on the demands of your workout in real time. Performance breathing with TrainingMask 3.0 focuses on improving respiratory conditioning, fitness, and recovery.

Respiratory Resistance Trainer

TrainingMask 2.0 is a respiratory resistance device that is designed to strengthen the breathing muscles and improve breathing mechanics. 2.0s multi-patented dual channel air flow technology compresses air at the inlets with resistance caps and then adds air resistance via flux valves. TrainingMask 2.0 will help you improve breathing power, inspiratory muscle strength, and breathing technique. The lightweight and comfortable design of TrainingMask 2.0 makes it a perfect addition to almost all exercise routines.

Hypoxic Resistance Mask

The Training Mask 1.0 has an aggressive air flow friction profile which really challenges your breathing during intense training sessions. TrainingMask 1.0s loads breathing musculature in a confined airflow system which creates a pronounced hypoxic (reduced oxygen) training stimulus. The first generation TrainingMask works best when used for extreme sports training where labored breathing and sustained extreme intensity effort are required.

IMPROVES RESPIRATORY COMPENSATION THRESHOLD (RCT)

RCT is the boundary between high intensity activity and severe intensity exertion. Under normal conditions the bodies drive to breathe is based on carbon dioxide levels in the blood. When RCT is reached, the bodies drive to breathe is driven by lactate levels. This causes very heavy respiration and signifies a transition point in which fatigue starts to overcome the body’s ability to sustain exercise intensity. TrainingMask® increases RCT which allows the body to generate incrementally more effort before the point of exhaustion is reached.

IMPROVES VENTILATORY THRESHOLD

Ventilatory Threshold is the point during an activity in which breathing volume becomes insufficient to meet the oxygen demands of the body during exertion. TrainingMask® has been shown to increase Ventilatory Threshold giving you access to more activity capacity during exertion.

Increase power output at ventilatory threshold

Under normal conditions if you need more oxygen, you can breathe harder to get more to the working muscles. VT (Ventilatory Threshold) is the juncture during a workout breathing can no longer match the oxygen demands of the body during exertion. TrainingMask has been shown to increase the amount of power you can produce while at VT keeping you stronger for longer.

INCREASES POWER OUTPUT AT RESPIRATORY COMPENSATION THRESHOLD (RCT)

The respiratory compensation threshold (RCT) is the stage of high intensity exertion where minute ventilation (the air that can be inhaled and exhaled in 60 seconds) starts becoming excessive with respect to carbon dioxide output. RCT is the boundary between high intensity exertion and severe intensity effort. TrainingMask® increases the amount of cardiorespiratory power the body can produce while at RCT.

STRENGTH TRAINING UNDER HYPOXIC CONDITIONS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASES SERUM GROWTH HORMONE LEVELS

Serum growth hormone concentrations after exercise were significantly higher in the hypoxic group than in the normoxic group on both the first and last training sessions. These findings suggest that hypoxic resistance training elicits more muscle hypertrophy associated with a higher growth hormone secretion.
