Altitude training is the perfect preparation for maximizing your performance. It can improve athletes’ endurance, speed, reaction time, recovery rate, and significantly accelerate rehabilitation following an injury.
Altitude training is no longer a tool only for elite athletes. The research- based practice has shown that it can be used to improve the performance of athletes of all skill levels in a wide variety of sports.
Living or training in conditions imitating a high-altitude atmosphere improves the body’s endurance at sea level and, in the appropriate mountain conditions, gives athletes a real advantage over others.
By adapting the circulatory, respiratory and muscular systems, athletes get the effect of improving stamina and endurance.
Correctly applied in the training process, hypoxia leads to improvements in both aerobic and anaerobic capacity. This helps improve the body’s capabilities of making various kinds of exercise, thus allowing for the improvement in performance in almost any sport.
During minimal exercise, the body takes in less oxygen and therefore:
- has to work harder
- the body is subjected to greater stress,
Consequently, this leads to:
- an increase in blood hemoglobin,
- an increase in muscle fiber capillarization,
- improvement in the buffering capacity of muscles,
- an increase in the activity of glycolytic enzymes,
- reduced energy cost of exercise,
- improvement in anaerobic and aerobic capacity
