The Doctors: Elevation Masks For A Better Workout?
The Doctors kicked off their January 25 episode by welcoming actress Kristen Bellamy to aid in their discussion of hot health headlines. They first looked at one company’s elevation masks that gym-goers are wearing, claiming to cut the time spent training by 2/3. It’s supposed to simulate high altitude, by creating pulmonary resistance, strengthening your diaphragm, increasing lung capacity, decreasing workout time, and so much more! Dr Rachael Ross argued that the masks would likely just make breathing harder. If nothing else, the masks are somply creepy looking, so you’re truly better off trying something else and letting this trend slide by.
