Some other member in my gym wearing this mask inspired me to check it out. I have to say, after spending a few hours attempting to research the science behind it, that publications are thin: The only external reference in the booklet, if I am not mistaken, refers to a publication about respiratory muscle strengthening using non-respiratory maneuvers. The apparently self-published study on the mask producer's web-site shows statistically significant improvement only for males doing HIIT (high-intensity interval training) while wearing either the mask or a SCBA (firemen breathing device) gear, but lacks information about control groups like: Would doing HIIT without any gear shown similar improvements? Would wearing a device without HIIT shown meaningful improvements? The booklet does not mention HIIT.

That said, I tried the mask now for the last 6-8 weeks of weight workouts, and once bicycling. I typically wear a Polar heart-rate monitor (F11) when exercising, and this will be the only objective metric I have to judge the effectiveness for me. My standard configuration is the 1-hole caps on both intakes, the shipping configuration, for 9000ft. Frankly, the claim about *altitude* training does not jive with me: Restricted breathing at sea level still gives one the same sea-level oxygen concentration. But enough about altitude.

During weight workouts, results depend. There is no problem wearing the mask during warm-up and abs before the main exercises. The mask does help me go (much) slower on the negative part of the movement when inhalation is restricted, because I synchronize breathing with movement, as one should. On shoulder days, and only then, wearing the mask during the workout yields a measurable improvements, with the HRM reporting ~500 kcal.

I'm active duty military and use these daily for running, sprinting, cross fit, etc. Took a while to get used to, but it forces you to breathe correctly whenever exercising (in the nose & out the mouth). Recently just bought the black valves just for looks. Would highly recommend for serious minded physical training.

I also bought the Training Mask 1.0 a while back before I bought the 2.0. I have really liked the 1.0 (Gas Mask). I bought the 2.0 the day it came out on the Training Mask's homepage. When the box arrived it was a pretty beat up package, looked like the company just quickly shoved everything in the package quickly and tossed it in the box to mail, but the mask and all items were in good condition. Here are the things that stood out the most.

POSITIVES:

PURPOSE-Seemed to be effective at exercising the lungs and diapragm, just like the 1.0. 1.0 does a much better job sealing around the face.

USE- I could wear it while cleaning the house, watching tv, nerding it up to some videogames, etc without have my view restricted like the 1.0 does. Which by the I like about the 1.0, during grappling I never really had a problem of being out of breathe, stuck in a position where my breathing is restricted, and then begin becoming claustrophobic, but with the 1.0 it really made you less claustrophobic in tight hard to breath situations.

NEGATIVES:

SIZE- On their homepage they go by weight to pick your size, bad idea. I'm 6'2, 260lbs, and have a xxl size head and large chin. On the website it says up 250lbs, well i buy the largest size available (250lbs). And 250lbs. is marked medium on the mask and the largest size available. When I put the 2.0 on it barely even makes it to the top of my chin and doesnt even come close to covering or sealing on the chin. It basically covers mid nose bridge and just mouth. With the bad size it also places a lot of stress on the bridge of my nose which can become painful after around 15 minutes.

The elevation training mask, is a unique way to boost your workout. I usually can do about 50-70 pushups with the mask and as soon as you take it off you get a head rush of how much air you can actually breathe and bang out 20 or so more. The build quality is great and would recommend to anyone trying to up there workout.

GREAT device for cardio training, you can feely feel the difference after a few weeks wearing it, but you wont really notice it until you train with it OFF. I bought this device for several reasons

1. I was preparing for a hike up to the peak of San Gorgino (right around 11,000 foot)
2. I wanted to improve my mountain biking
3. I wanted overall better endurance as I am a fairly active\outdoors person

2 out of 3 aint bad!

I feel much stronger on my MTB and have been able to tough out a few nasty climbs that I haven't been able to before, and overall I feel a slight, yet noticeable difference in lung capacity, endurance, and mental focus. The device does what it says as far as endurance and cardio training......BUT nothing can prepare you for elevation like the real deal - It only took about 3 miles of moderate hiking at 8700 feet for elevation sickness to set it. I never made it up the mountain, but i will be back!

The mask seems decently made, but could use some more quality to the build (IMO), the stitching that holds the Velcro closures in place is already ripped and falling apart on mine and I haven't had it long at all. Plus one of the plastic posts that holds the air restrictors in place is badly out of shape and just seems way too fragile to bend back into place.

long story short - 4 out of 5 stars.

The good
I like it, I'm happy with it, and could easily recommend this for anyone looking to step it up a notch. Noticeable improvements after about 3 - 4 weeks.

The bad
My experience was that this thing is useless for elevation training, its a little pricey, doesn't seem like it will last long (little low on the quality side)
