This Insane Mask Restricts Oxygen To Make You Work Out Harder

If the Training Mask 2.o represents the future of exercise, we expect the years ahead may be equal parts brilliant and over the top.

The mask limits the flow of oxygen taken in during exercise. This causes the mask-wearer’s body to work harder, burn more calories and, ultimately, get in shape faster than it would with average amounts of oxygen.

Per the Training Mask website: “When elite athletes want to improve their performance they go to high altitude levels to train. When they come back to sea level they perform much stronger, faster, and have increased endurance.”

As your body adjusts to functioning with the “pulmonary resistance” the mask creates, exercising without resistance will start to feel like a piece of cake.

A variety of colorful sleeves are available for purchase, in case you want to look like a Storm Trooper or sport some pretty pink flowers while you work out.

The mask’s settings can be adjusted based on your level of fitness and the desired challenge of your workout. A writer who tested out the mask for Business Insider had this to say about the various settings: “I’ve discovered that if I only have a half hour and want a great workout, a jump rope and the mask at its hardest setting will do the trick. If I’m going for a longer run, an easier setting is perfect.”

The Training Mask 2.o retails on Amazon for $79.99.
