At the Olympic level, differences in performance are typically less than 0.5%.
This helps explain why many contemporary elite endurance athletes in summer and winter sport incorporate some form of altitude-hypoxic training within their year-round training plan, believing that it will provide the “competitive edge” to succeed at the Olympic level.
The purpose of this paper is to describe the practical application of altitude-hypoxic training as utilized by elite athletes.
Within the general framework of the paper, both anecdotal and scientific evidence will be presented relative to the efficacy of several contemporary altitude-hypoxic training models and devices currently used by Olympic-level athletes for the purpose of legally enhancing performance.
These include the three primary altitude-hypoxic training models: 1) live high train high (LH TH), 2) live high train low (LH TL), and 3) live low train high (LL TH).
The LH TL model will be examined in detail and will include its various modifications:...
