Altitude Training and Endurance Performance

Many endurance athletes use altitude training to improve their physical performance. In this chapter, we briefly present the main altitude training methods and we evaluate from the existing scientific data their potential effectiveness on endurance performance at sea level. Live high—train high (LHTH) at natural altitude has not been demonstrated to improve endurance performance, which contrasts with the method’s popularity, including among elite triathletes.
