Hypoxia is a state occurring in humans where there is insufficient oxygen supply to meet demand.
Shane Skinman Hanson
This item is great, it does what it claims, and makes work outs 50x more challenging if you want a bigger challenge in your workout or training I reccomend this item.

Basically, what the mask does is make the muscle in your rib-cage work harder for air, making it much easier to breath in normal conditions.

I purchased this mask and it is everything that they claim it to be. But and there is a But if you spend 25 dollars on an "Isreali Civilian Gas Mask" you will get the exact same thing minus the yellow, orange and red plugs that screw into the NATO filter port. I contacted the company to find out the cost on replacment plugs and the CEO of the company said the plugs are 25 dollars a piece. The product works great but I would not buy it again. The same effect can be had for a lot cheaper. Try putting a piece of tape over the Nato Filter hole with a hole in it or just breath though a straw.

As far as performance it really does work when I was in the Marines we would go on runs with our gas masks on to limit breathing. This increases CO2 in the blood which stimulates homoglobin production...or something like that. This allows your body to use oxygen more efficiently.

First of all, the air we breathe at sea level is approximately 20.9% Oxygen, 78.9% Nitrogen , a combined amount just under 0.97% Argon and C02 with the remainder being small amounts of other gases. As you ascend in altitude the air becomes thinner with the troposphere's constituents decreasing proportionately ,resulting in a Hypoxic or oxygen deficient air supply.

Hypoxia is a state occurring in humans where there is insufficient oxygen supply to meet demand. Being the wondrous machine it is, the body makes changes and adaptations in order to meet the demand placed upon it starting with increased heart rate, frequency and depth of breathing, vasodilation and increased capillarization to better carry oxygenated blood , pulmonary arterial vasoconstriction directing blood flow to the gas exchange site (the alveoli) , increased VO2max, mitochondria efficiency, power output and energy production plus a signalled increase in natural EPO production in the kidneys.
There are 3 levels of altitude as identified by the International Society for Mountain Medicine with the oxygen content decreasing as ascension in altitude is made. For example, if you were in the town of Eldoret, Kenya, home of world champion long distance runners, you will find yourself at 2400m above sea level with an atmospheric oxygen content of around 14.5%. As you ascend in altitude your blood oxygen saturation (SaO2%) drops with the hypoxic response occurring, however products like these masks will not cause your SaO2% to drop to the levels associated with high altitude training even under the most intense exercise as there is no alteration to the amount of oxygen passing through the mask and into your lungs.
It doesn't take a medical degree to know that if you're at sea level, breathing sea level air (20.

When I first saw this I was skeptical but after a few weeks of use I noticed an increase in my breath depth and quality. I have yet to know if it will actually do what it claims to do, allow me to train my body to work off lower oxygen levels, but I am looking forward to testing that theory out.
All in all this is a very cheap alternative to the actual high altitude trainer systems, the cheepest I have seen is a few thoudand dollars. Why not give it a shot if you were looking into trying to find an edge without spending excessive ammounts of money.

!!!UPDATE!!!
After a bit of use I found out this product is not to be taken lightly. You will starve yourself of oxygen when using this product so do not hesitate to take it off when you start to feel light headed and are seeing stars. That being said, I still stand by my earlier review but only to a point. I did not see any significant increase in lung capacity or for that matter any increase in my body's ability to use oxygen more effeciently. There was an increase but not significant enough to be happy about it. I have done similar training with and without the mask for the same periods of time and have not seen enough of a change for the better to justify it's use.

One of the best training aid I have come across, I felt results in one week only.
The mask comes with three color coded filters, each constricting the airflow differently; Yellow: easy, Orange: medium, Red: hard, with the less airflow.
Basically, what the mask does is make the muscle in your rib-cage work harder for air, making it much easier to breath in normal conditions.
My suggestion would be to start wearing the mask around the house for a while without exercising just to get used to it. After fifteen minutes or so, change the filter to an easier one and work out. When it gets too hard, switch to the easiest filter.
Basic work out: 1) walking around for fifteen to twenty minutes wearing the red filter.
2) work out with the orange filter, if it becomes too hard, switch to the yellow. Go back to the orange to cool down after exercising. When you finally take the mask off: ecstasy !
Perfect to scare your neighbors when running with it on at night !
Perfect if you want to look like an S&M deviant.

It's a cool & simple apparatus. The process wearing the mask & doing simple tasks takes some getting used to but like any type of training I look forward to seeing my progress.
