Training Mask Elevation Simulation To Increase Lung Capacity & Athletic Performance
NOW WITH FREE SHIPPING!!!
Elevation Training Mask is great because it regulates how much air you can breathe in, making it so that you breath less oxygen, in turn making the air thinner (due to the low oxygen intake it's similar to altitude training) . With reduced 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.
If you don't have Elevation Training Mask your not training like a champion!
ULTIMATE TRAINING MASKS!
PATENT PENDING TECHNOLOGY.
Elevation Training Mask mimics the affect 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
ELEVATION Gas Mask Training
Elevation Training Mask helps condition the lungs by 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, it can be used during running, cycling (stationary for beginners) and other workouts.
If you train with less oxygen you can eventually go on for longer! Elevation Training Mask is great because it regulates how much air you can breathe in, making it so that you breath less oxygen, in turn making the air thinner (due to the low oxygen intake it's similar to altitude training).
Following are the changes that significantly boost Athletic Performance when using Elevation Training Mask.
- Increases in Lung capacity as your lungs have to work 9 times harder to get the oxygen in
- Increases anaerobic Thresholds
- Gas exchange becomes more efficient
- Energy Production levels rise
- Mental and Physical stamina increase
- Mental Focus gets better

With reduced 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).
GMT is also fantastic for anyone suffering from asthma, as most asthmatics tend to over breathe, with the gas mask on they will learn to control their breathing, and some say it can even cure it if done on a regular basis.
Blood is an 'aqueous body fluid'. In other words it is water containing a whole range of substances. It is contained in a complex network called the vascular system and is pumped around the body by the heart.
Blood has two main functions. It:
provides defense against disease
transports compounds, ions, and some elements to and from other tissues and cells
Red blood cells and haemoglobin
Oxygen is one of the substances transported with the assistance of red blood cells. The red blood cells contain a pigment called hemoglobin, each molecule of which binds four oxygen molecules. Oxyhemoglobin forms. The oxygen molecules are carried to individual cells in the body tissue where they are released. The binding of oxygen is a reversible reaction.
Hb + 4O2 Hb.4O2
The four 'disks' in the diagram of hemoglobin are the parts of the molecule where the oxygen molecules bind, while the four folded 'sausage shapes' represent polypeptide chains.
At high oxygen concentrations oxyhemoglobin forms, but at low oxygen concentrations oxyhemoglobin dissociates to hemoglobin and oxygen. The balance can be shown by an oxygen dissociation curve for oxyhemoglobin.
at relatively low oxygen concentrations there is uncombined hemoglobin in the blood and little or no oxyhemoglobin, e.g. in body tissue
at relatively high oxygen concentrations there is little or no uncombined hemoglobin in the blood; it is in the form of oxyhemo globin, e.g. in the lungs.
Note Historically oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations are expressed as partial pressures (measured in kPa), also called oxygen or carbon tension. The amount of oxygen held by the hemoglobin, i.e. its saturation level, is normally expressed as a percentage.
Oxygen dissociation curves can be used to illustrate Le Chatelier's Principle which states that a system in dynamic equilibrium responds to any stress by restoring the equilibrium. For example shifts in the position of the curve occur as a result of the concentration of CO2 or changes in pH.
The effect of carbon dioxide in the blood
Hemoglobin can also bind carbon dioxide, but to a lesser extent. Carbaminohaemoglobin forms. Some carbon dioxide is carried in this form to the lungs from respiring tissues.
The presence of carbon dioxide helps the release of oxygen from hemoglobin, this is known as the Bohr effect. This can be seen by comparing the oxygen dissociation curves when there is less carbon dioxide present and when there is more carbon dioxide in the blood.
When carbon dioxide diffuses into the blood plasma and then into the red blood cells (erythrocytes) in the presence of the catalyst carbonic anhydrase most CO2 reacts with water in the erythrocytes and the following dynamic equilibrium is established
H2O + CO2 H2CO3
Carbonic acid, H2CO3, dissociates to form hydrogen ions and hydrogen carbonate ions. This is also a reversible reaction and undissociated carbonic acid, hydrogen ions and hydrogen carbonate ions exist in dynamic equilibrium with one another
H2CO3 H+ + HCO3-
Inside the erythrocytes negatively charged HCO3- ions diffuse from the cytoplasm to the plasma. This is balanced by diffusion of chloride ions, Cl-, in the opposite direction, maintaining the balance of negative and positive ions either side. This is called the 'chloride shift'.
The dissociation of carbonic acid increases the acidity of the blood (decreases its pH). Hydrogen ions, H+, then react with oxyhemoglobin to release bound oxygen and reduce the acidity of the blood. This buffering action allows large quantities of carbonic acid to be carried in the blood without major changes in blood pH.
Hb.4O2 + H+ HHb+ + 4O2
(Hb.4O2 is sometimes written HbO8.)
It is this reversible reaction that accounts for the Bohr effect. Carbon dioxide is a waste product of respiration and its concentration is high in the respiring cell and so it is here that hemoglobin releases oxygen.
Now the hemoglobin is strongly attracted to carbon dioxide molecules. Carbon dioxide is removed to reduce its concentration in the cell and is transported to the lungs were its concentration is lower. This process is continuous since the oxygen concentration is always higher than the carbon dioxide concentration in the lungs. The opposite is true in respiring cells.
Figure 2:17 The Bohr effect and its consequence on oxygen tension. When blood is less alkaline, more oxygen is released from haemoglobin and received by the tissues.

Sean "The Muscle Shark" Sherk
I have used many different types of oxygen masks, Altitude tents and hyperbaric chambers over the years but nothing compares to the Elevation Training Mask in performance, size, and convenience. The mask has pushed my conditioning and mental toughness to a whole new level. This is the BEST product i have every used PERIOD!!
Felix - Semper Fitness: I own four and all of my fighters own them as well. A MUST have for any serious athlete or strength & conditioning coach of combative sports. PERIOD
SSgt Laria Corney. I am a armed forces member currently residing in Georgia and stationed as a Reservist at Dobbins Air Reserve Base. I am a military cop and I also train in Mixed Martial Arts. I recently purchased the elevation training mask from my workout friend and even though I have only used it for a week, I have already experienced what a difference the mask has been in my cardiovascular endurance training. I don't know how many other Armed Forces members have this mask, but if it can help me, imagine what it can do for other members overseas and stateside. I would love to help bring attention to what the elevation training mask can do to other military personnel.
