Here it is the next big thing that shows up in your Facebook feed, the answer to all your training plateaus, the product that will get you bigger and stronger than your friends!
It has to be, right? There are a bunch of scientific words, backed by some Scandinavian study...Guess what for the right $$$ anyone can get a study to produce the "right" result, "disclosure" is key...all that means to me is someone did some marketing research, on how to best exploit the unknowing.
Disclaimer...I have not used the product, nor have any of my clients . However, judging by what I have read in the product description, it sounds exactly like the high altitude training mask, which is a scam (read my blog for more on that).
Why would you use an apparatus, that would put your training at a disadvantage, when you exercise we want blood vessel dilation not constriction, we want to deliver nurishment to the working muscles and have the opportunity to carry away toxins. THIS DEVICE MIMICS HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE! How many people do you know with high blood pressure that have a physique that you would die for?
This product restricts oxygenated blood from reaching the mitochondria of slow twitch muscles...bad idea, those usually are stabilizers that help prevent injury...toning and mass usually rely on anaerobic muscle energy.
Another claim they make is that it can help with injury prevention by getting better benefits with less weight, therefore less musculoskeletal strain...how about saving your money, doing a little research or visiting an orthopedic exercise specialist, on proper training to help you rehab an injury.
Once again, if you want results, work hard, progress, be consistent, and be smart with nutrition and recovery...and most of all save your money!!!
