Introduction: The effects of training methods along with functional tools in improving the performance of the respiratory system of athletes have been less investigated. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of six weeks of High-intensity functional training (HIFT) training and hypoxia mask on the performance of the respiratory system in elite athletes.
Method: In this semi-experimental study, 14 players of the Iranian national ice hockey team were divided into two HIFT and HIFT exercise with hypoxia mask groups, then both HIFT groups and HIFT exercise with hypoxia mask, performed HIFT training sessions with 30 seconds repetition and five sets for about an hour, three sessions a week for six weeks. Before and after the training session, anthropometry, body composition, forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) were measured using in-body device and gas analyzer. The data were analyzed using the analysis of covariance test at the P<0.05.
Results: The results showed that FVC and FEV1 decreased in HIFT training group and increased in hypoxia mask group. There was no difference between the effect of HIFT training and hypoxia mask on FVC of elite ice hockey men (P=0.129), but FEV1 in HIFT training group with hypoxia mask compared to training group HIFT was significantly higher (P=0.012).
Conclusion: According to the research results, it is recommended that elite ice hockey men use HIFT training with hypoxia mask in order to improve lung function.
