    Bas Rutten's o2-trainer and related

    Hi all,

    Just saw this somewhere:

    http://o2trainer.com/

    I based my o2 Trainer on a simple, yet powerful concept. By controlling the air INTAKE to your lungs, you immediately begin breathing the right way – using your diaphragm (belly). The smaller the hole on the air INTAKE side, the harder your lungs need to work to “pull” the air in. As you pull the air in through my o2 Trainer, focus on using your diaphragm muscles, (the muscles between your chest and abs). You are training your lung and diaphragm muscles, and thus making them stronger.
    Now, we know that Wanderlei Silva, for example, does atrociously brutal snorkeling sessions.

    So what's about this, is this really THAT NEW of an idea, and is this new device that will be available for ordering some time before carnival weekend really worth our bucks?

    Appreciating qualified input,

    Rafe

    I love Bas but this seems pretty gimmicky. Any research done on it's effects? I'd avoid it. Not that I think it will hurt you or be detrimental in any way, but really...just go run

    Also, how's that blender working for you? Mine is from circa 1993 and I need a new one.

    Not necessarily an official review but an interesting one none the less. I'm a personal trainer and normally use a swat grade gas mask, but this might make for a more effective/less startling alternative to O2 training without altitude if it turns out its higher levels do promote increased red blood cell production.

    He talks about it at some point in Joe Rogan's Ustream video with him [it's 2 hours long if you're unfamiliar with it] that they shot 4 days ago. He talks about the concept and why it works/what it does. The concept and principles behind it make sense.

    Only time will tell if it's actually worth the investment. Just my 0.02

    Edit: Link to the episode if you want to watch/find the info - it's a decent watch if you're into that sorta thing. http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/12874240

    Edit2: Info at the end of the episode, last 6-7 minutes
    cheers

    Thanks, man, this was where I got the idea to ask about it.

    Seems it should already be for sale by now.
