With the rise of many different sport technologies, consumers are likely to research ways to improve their training methods. New equipment available is able to change the way people conduct their own personal workouts and even improve the quality of their conditioning.
This is why elevation training masks have burst onto the scene recently. Athletes are convinced they can emulate the conditions that increase red blood cell production, thereby increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.
The masks limit the flow of air to the nostrils and mouth, simulating the effect of training at higher altitudes. According to Levine and Stray-Gundersen’s 1997 study
, an increase in oxygen-carrying capacity has been correlated to improvements in endurance performance and VO2max (maximal oxygen uptake), so taking advantage of these training methods is of high interest for athletes wanting intense training regiments.
