Gas mask training

Anyone train/run in a gas mask? I know that it doesn't simulate high altitude training completely, but does it improve your performance? If so, I'm interested in where I can buy a CHEAP one.

don't make me move this to the og

Most people have stopped using them because it can lead to heart arrhythmias. Only elite endurance athletes seem to still use them because even better than average athletes dont have a cardio level high enough where they would have more benefit over conventional endurance training.

I was thinking of getting one in the near future for running. Trying to find more information on it to see if its worth the investment. Phone Post

While you're at it have somebody punch you in the body at the same time - hey, it's supposed to be functional training right?:)
