Elevation Mask.....Comments, Experiences, Thoughts....

  1. Elevation Mask.....Comments, Experiences, Thoughts....


    I have read some comments and stuff about the elevation mask and was wondering if anyone on here has used the Elevation Mask for cardio training.....if so what do you think about it? Worth the money? Any problems you had with it or thoughts about it in general?


  2. Not worth it. There have been some recent studies regarding its efficacy and they have not panned out to the hype.

    Really?
    Pro cyclists sleep in elevation chambers for this adaptation.

    Still not worth it.

    Yes, but sleep is much, much longer than a conditioning session.

    If you can get a legitimate one for $40, I'd say give it a shot. These basically work by restricting oxygen and getting the body to use O2 more effectively. This in turn would lead to better cardiovascular conditioning. Does it work? Who knows, but for $40 I'd give it a shot. Or you could even use a simple $5 snorkel to lessen the amount of O2 your body is taking in while doing cardio. I thought about the snorkel method once I start my diet and cardio in 3 weeks. Do you have a link for the $40 mask?

  7. Breathing through a dual-layered mouthpiece will essentially give you the same effect.

    I'm assuming the OP is talking about the Elevation Mask being pushed by Sean Sherk.


  10. The Sherk version comes with a lifetime supply of
    Deca to round out the conditioning.

  11. I think that is what victor conte is using with his mma guinnea pigs.

  12. yes I am talking about the sean sherk elevation mask. The theory sounds correct on how it "should" work; just wondered if anyone has actually used it. Obviously I see this as something that would take several months of use to actually notice a difference; but what difference is it and is it worth it? The money isn't the issue, it's the damn hassle of wearing it and **** if it's not going to do anything.

  13. Maybe try using a snorkel first to see if you notice a difference in your cardio. It's essentially the same principal as the mask: air restriction.

  14. This sounds interesting

  15. hahah id love to see someone try to roll in one of those masks. id conveniently cover up the breathing holes lol

  18. I currently live in Colorado and I believe nothing can compare to the elevation I've been here for a year and I still am not used to it

    I remember the first year I went snowboarding up in Loveland and almost passed out. I believe it was 10,500ft elevation and the air was thin! Then the next day we went to Breckinridge and again I almost passed out! lol Colorado rocks!

  20. Without a doubt there is a reason the olympic training center is here

  21. I've been looking at these for a while but over here in the UK these sell for 90 which is $144.00 (approx) for you guys. I just bought one from a US site for just over $60 an hour ago. I used the voucher code on their google ad MASK20 and because I've never ordered from these guys before I got another 10% off automatically. The only downside is the $29.95 shipping to the UK but it still works out a lot cheaper for me than buying one from a UK based site. I can't obviously comment on the service yet but the site was easy to use and price wise I got what I wanted for a lot less.

    I'm new on here so I can't post a link but check out mmayard.com

    Once I've received it (hopefully within 10 days) I'll report back.

  22. My friend bought one he claims that it's one of the best things he ever used, then a week later he wasn't using it anymore,
    I've used it for 2 days but it was more uncomfortable than anything else didn't notice anything but I'm sure I needed to keep using it.

    I believe it's all in the mind, I'm sure it does what it says but if you tell yourself it works it will, but if say it's crap I will ultimately think it's crap.
