"Ventilatory Threshold is the point during an activity in which breathing volume becomes insufficient to meet the oxygen demands of the body during exertion. TrainingMask® has been shown to increase Ventilatory Threshold giving you access to more activity capacity during exertion."
Training with the Training Mask during sled training is a sure fire way to increase ventilatory threshold. The goal of the sled push isn't just for increasing leg strength, but also to create a "cardio state" where breathing comes into play.
In this state you are creating more work capacity, and increasing your ability to get into better fitness and conditioning.
Sled tips + Training Mask Tips:
- Dont just stack weight on, put weight on that you can MOVE
- The video above shows pushing of the sled. Try pulling it as well
- Sled speed can vary; you can run the sled fast, of focus on marching the sled at a steady pace
- Alternate sled pushes/pulls by taking off the Training Mask every other push/pull
