Comments:  Today was stupid hot when I went for the run, probably because I picked a crappy time of day. But either way, I was not enjoying today’s cardio training. Next week I’m going to bump up the altitude and start doing a little bit of HIIT type training (without the elevation training mask) in between. Well, hopefully tomorrow goes better!

Comments:  Today I took the Elevation Training Mask back inside the gym to the rower to see if I could “play” with my HR. So I knocked out the first 10mins in the Mask (still @ 9,000) and going at a 1:52ish min/500m pace. My HR did the same systematic little engine that could climb, and then as soon as I pulled the Elevation Training Mask off at the 10min mark; my little engine turned into a Big Block and started pumping, tossing me into the high 160s with ease. I was also able to hit the elusive 170s that I couldn’t get to in the Mask (at least without going as hard as possible). So tomorrow after my leg workout, I’m going to finish up on the rower with a quick 1000m row, no elevation training mask, and see what my HR climbs to.

DAY 40

Key Factors:

Mask:                          No Mask

Additional Factors:

Shoe:                           8 Cush/0 Drop

Hours of Sleep:          7 hrs

Supplementation:     1 scoop MP Assault (Pre-workout)

Addition Training:     01:07:01 Strength Training

Total kcal:                   798 kcal burned

Comments:  Today was an awesome day, I simply love leg day. But, we can skip all the box jumps and 100rep leg extensions superset with 5 reps of heavy front squats etc. and just go to the 1000m finish. So, without the Elevation Training Mask, I strap into the rower for a quick 1000m and without wanting to throw up was able to finish in 3:34. As for my HR, there was a nice swift climb 173 bpm that I probably wouldn’t have been able to hold on to for 15min. So as we hit the biblical day 40, we’ve definitely got some insight on how the Elevation Training Mask directly affects the body. Still ready for College Gameday and a break tomorrow J
