High Altitude Low Altitude Training Advantages

The height of a location which is measured from the sea level is called altitude. The most high altitude point in the world is Mount Everest, which is located in Himalayan the altitude is 8000 metres.

How it works?

Altitude training helps to adopt the condition of environment. It is called acclimatisation. The main purpose of living and training at altitude is to improve sea level performance by improving the link which is oxygen delivery. It is done by increasing the total volume of red blood cell mass and haemoglobin mass which is expected to increase the sea level oxygen undertake and performance.

Why people do altitude training?

Any training which is above 5000 feet is called altitude training. This training helps people to improve their performance by Exercising or living in less oxygen places for physical wellness or to improve athletic performance.

High altitudes reduces partial pressure of oxygen which leads to low breathing. Many people think that this training helps to improve lung power but actually it’s not fully right.

Level of performance

As we know altitude training generally used by athletes to improve their performance .the athletes learns for weeks at high altitude through the training their body used to adopt the changes easily.

Increase in red blood cells

In human body kidney produces erythropoietin this helps the body to increase blood cells and the red blood cells supply oxygen to the whole body. Because of altitude training the kidney produce more erythropoietin this helps the body to enhance more oxygen.

Longer effects

Person train himself for more than one week at a high altitude .the body is used to supply a high amount of red blood cells. Even after when they are in low altitude their body produce high level of red blood cells.

After studying all these aspects it is concluded that altitude training is very beneficial for athletes and non-athletes. People should train them at high altitude for future survival.
