Live Low – Train High (LL-TH)

Sleeping at Sea level -Training at Altitude

With minimal costs and travel constraints for athletes, the “living low – training high” (LL-TH) approach is becoming an important intervention for modern sport. The popularity of the LL-TH model of altitude training is also associated with the fact that it only causes a slight disturbance to athletes’ usual daily routine, allowing them to maintain their regular lifestyle in their home environment.

  • The optimal height for training in Altitude depends on the reaction to Altitude and during the training the SPO2 should be controlled.
  • On average the training session is about 1 / 1,5 hours at an altitude of 2.700 meters
  • 60%–70% of the heart rate reserve
  • The optimal time seems 3 till 5 sessions a week for a period of 3 weeks
