Altitude Training and Endurance Performance (Part 3 of 4)

BY admin

AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC PERFORMANCE CHANGE WITH ALTITUDE TRAINING   Acclimatisation to altitude initiates a sequence of musculocardio-respiratory and metabolic adaptations that impact oxygen transport and utilisation. The complementary stimulus of environmental hypoxia can compound the typical physiological adaptations to endurance training and speed-up performance enhancements following return to sea-level. We will discuss the physiological implications [...] [...]
