See Why It Works.
RCT is the boundary between high intensity activity and severe intensity exertion. Under normal conditions the body’s drive to breathe is based on carbon dioxide levels in the blood. When RCT is reached, the body’s 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Training Mask 3.0 is precision engineered to bring performance breathing to your workouts with its 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.
TrainingMask 2.0 is a respiratory resistance device that is designed to strengthen the breathing muscles and improve breathing mechanics. 2.0s multi-patented flux valve technology offers six levels of resistance which allows you to work on breathing power, inspiratory muscle strength, and breathing technique. The lightweight and comfortable design of TrainingMask 2.0 makes it a perfect addition to most forms of exercise from strength workouts to cardiovascular training.
The Training Mask 1.0 has an aggressive resistance profile which really challenges your breathing during workouts. TrainingMask 1.0s substantial loading of the breathing musculature in a confined airflow system creates a pronounced hypoxic (reduced oxygen) training response. The first generation TrainingMask shines best when used for extreme sports training where labored breathing and sustained high intensity effort are required.
