How it works
High Altitude Training
Training at simulated altitude is comparable to training in the mountains. Mountain air contains less oxygen than air at sea level, due to reduced air pressure. At sea level, air contains 20.9% oxygen, whereas at 2500 meters the amount of oxygen is equivalent to 15.5% at sea level.
How your body acclimatizes to altitude is fairly simple. You inhale air that contains less oxygen(1) which triggers the body. Inside the kidneys(2) are sensitive cells that react to the lack of oxygen. They stimulate the production of erythropoietin(3). This hormone stimulates the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow.
These extra red blood cells result in more oxygen available throughout the body, that allows for extra performance of muscles and organs, more energy and improvement of metabolism.
For athletes and other target groups the advantages are:
- Increased performance
- Faster recovery
- Increased metabolism
- Stimulates lipolysis process (fat-burning)
- Less muscle fatique
- Increased stamina
