Elevation Training Mask

Episode 181 -Jason is a doctor/obstacle racer who wrote a blog post that began this way:

I’m a lung doc and have spent more hours than I can count studying cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology. This makes it nearly impossible for me to ignore all the attention that elevation training masks are getting.

We read the rest of his post and we found it insightful and humorous. We wanted to bring him on so that we could ask questions about what training masks do/don’t accomplish. In addition, we asked him about how to train for elevation, and even IF one should attempt to train for elevation.

Episode 171

For an appetizer, this episode begins with a brief chat with Mark Ballas from The Green Beret Challenge. Matt sat down with Mark at the end of the most recent GBC. It’s a quickie, but a goodie where we learn a lot about the Green Beret Challenge.

The main course is with Melinda Spencer (Corssino).

Melinda and Matt discuss :

  • What is the WNBF?
  • How does the WNBF differ from from the IFBB and other body building associations?
  • How does one get a “pro card” in these organizations?
  • Can someone train for bodybuilding competitions and OCR simultaneously? (Eating to perform versus eating to look a certain way?)
  • How can someone get started in competing in bodybuilding?
  • How do you “take it easy” on yourself, and not be too self critical in the bodybuilding and OCR worlds?

and more.
