Training Mask at Home Workout - Asylum Vertical Plyo

I love doing my workouts everywhere: outdoors, indoors, the gym, the mountains....anywhere! Being from Florida and living at sea level can be a disadvantage though, so by using a Training Mask, it helps me simulate high-altitude training, it's like working out and running up on the mountains.

I know this Training Mask can look a little crazy, and I've scared a few people using it when running on some trails =). It doesn't help when they can hear my Darth Vader type of breathing either ha ha! There is no doubt that it is an attention grabber, but aside from all of that, it's a great thing to have for every athlete, and I highly recommend it.

It is suggested that you limit your Training Mask workouts to 20-30 minutes per session, and use it mostly for HIIT (high intensity interval training), which is perfect for me when I am doing my in-home Beachbody workouts such as Insanity Max 30, Asylum and P90X3. I did go over a bit with this Insanity Asylum Vertical Plyo workout which was about 38 minutes long. I definitely felt the struggle, but it felt good. I did take off the mask a couple times to hydrate during the workout.

In my opinion, I would not use the Training Mask if you are currently having breathing issues at sea level. I would recommend that you get your breathing down first before implementing the Training Mask into your workouts. If you do decide to use it, then just listen to your body, and if it gets to intense, simply take it off. There are 6 different settings from 3,000 ft all the way up to 15,000 ft of elevation training. I mostly use the setting for 6,000, but it all depends on the workout as well.

Check out my video below, and see how I workout at 6,000 ft of elevation indoors in Florida. Interested in the Insanity Asylum Challenge (30 Days) message me here, I have online challenge groups forming now, and I'd love to have you train with us!
