Science of Altitude

When the body is exposed to elevation, physically the brain and other organs systems respond almost immediately by increasing erythropoietin, a hormone that stimulates red blood cell production. After about a week, the rise in haemoglobin increases to the point it can actually improve performance for a short period of time when the athlete returns back to new sea level. Longer periods of training and living at high altitude will improve the oxygen-carrying capacity of the athlete’s blood even more.

Altitude is used to further enhance exercise performance at sea level or to acclimatise to competition at altitude. The fundamental theory behind altitude training is simple; that is, by exposing an athlete to an environment that is low in oxygen, the body will eventually adapt to this stress and improve its efficiency at transporting and using oxygen.
