Training mask is not just about being a cool masked man. It's more than this. This is why LeBron James and Jay Ajayi are fans of this restricted-airflow device.
The device is intended to replicate the benefits of exercising at high altitude. By cutting down on the amount of oxygen you take in, your lungs and heart have to work harder. The result is that your body must adapt to how it uses its energy stores. Once you unmask for a race or competition, your body then uses oxygen more efficiently, leading to substantial increases in strength, endurance, and speed.
Now, experience our Training Mask, strengthen your breathing muscles, push your limits in any sport, feel the difference and take your workouts to the next level.
What is a training mask?
A training mask is also known as an “altitude mask.” It is a device that covers the mouth and nose to regulate the flow of oxygen during physical activity. It is designed to simulate high-altitude conditions to force the respiratory muscles to work harder and adapt by increasing your endurance and reducing your body's reliance on oxygen.
How does training mask work?
Training masks work by reducing the amount of oxygen you can take during exercise. It mimics the effects of elevation training at a higher altitude. (Pocari et al., 2016) This then creates an environment with lower oxygen levels that forces the body to adapt to that reduced oxygen intake. As a result, the respiratory muscles are strengthened, allowing them to deliver more oxygen to the body's tissues during physical activity. These training masks are designed for resistance training of athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

What are the benefits of using a training mask?
One of the primary benefits of using a training mask is improved respiratory muscle endurance (Abouzeid, 2023). Over time, the use of a training mask can lead to improved endurance, meaning, being able to sustain physical activity for longer periods of time.
Another benefit of using a training mask is improved lung function. As you adjust to the reduced oxygen levels while wearing it, your lungs will work more efficiently at extracting oxygen from the air. This can result in improved lung capacity, which can lead to better overall fitness levels. (Warren et al., 2017)
