WHAT IS ALTITUDE TRAINING

Altitude training is the practice by some endurance athletes of​ training for several weeks at high altitude, preferably over 2,400 meters (8,000 ft) above sea level, though more commonly at intermediate altitudes due to the shortage of suitable high-altitude locations. At intermediate altitudes, the air still contains approximately 20.9% oxygen, but the barometric pressure and thus the partial pressure of oxygen is reduced.

Altitude training in the Swiss Olympic Training Base in the Alps (elevation 1,856 m or 6,089 ft) in St. Moritz.

Depending on the protocols used, the body may acclimate to the relative lack of oxygen in one or more ways such as increasing the mass of red blood cells and hemoglobin, or altering muscle metabolism. Proponents claim that when such athletes travel to competitions at lower altitudes they will still have a higher concentration of red blood cells for 10–14 days, and this gives them a competitive advantage. Some athletes live permanently at high altitude, only returning to sea level to compete, but their training may suffer due to less available oxygen for workouts.

Altitude training can be simulated through use of an altitude simulation tent, altitude simulation room, or mask-based hypoxicator system where the barometric pressure is kept the same, but the oxygen content is reduced which also reduces the partial pressure of oxygen. Hyperventilation training, which consists of reducing the breathing frequency while exercising, can also mimic altitude training by significantly decreasing blood and muscle oxygenation.

How Altitude Training upgrading the level of fitness:

Altitude training is fast becoming one of the most popular training methods, not just for elite athletes, but also for keen club and recreational runners. In Australia, a country with a paucity of high mountains, hundreds of runners of all abilities annually flock to local distance running Mecca, Falls Creek in a quest to fast-track their fitness and gain advantage over their rivals.  As runners we’re aware that training at altitude can increase fitness and performance, but how does it really work? And critically, is altitude training of equal benefit for elite versus recreational and runners competing at club or sub-elite levels?

Various methods of training runners have evolved over the years and are now relatively well understood, however the art of coaching remains difficult.  How to apply these training approaches and interventions to individual runners with various goals, ages and fitness levels is a complex business. Once these human factors enter the discussion the job of establishing and constantly updating the training mix for an individual runner becomes very challenging – as Peter Coe (coach and father of Sebastian Coe) eloquently put it: “every athlete in an experiment of one.”

Thankfully we have the masters of these complexities, the running alchemists or  physiologists to help us understand the impact of various training methods.  Get it right and you’ll be tapping into training and coaching gold, but poor choices could produce lead in your running saddle bags. Running training and coaching is definitely an art; however a solid base in science will prevent a lot of wasted time and effort pursuing strategies that have been proven to be ineffectual. It also helps athletes and coaches prioritise their efforts and training approaches – something that becomes increasingly important as you begin running at higher levels.  So there is a mix of science and art that leads to the alchemy of great performance

I recently attended a coaching seminar held in conjunction with the Australian National Cross Country Championships in Canberra where leading exercise physiologist Dr Philo Saunders and Professor Dick Telford and other experts discussed this topic and a range of other training methods and approaches for distance runners of varying ages,
development and ability levels.

 

Dr Philo Saunders:

Dr Saunders is a Senior Physiologist at the Australian Institute of Sport that has written extensively on altitude training and works with Australian elite swimmers and track and field athletes in this field. He also coaches and competes at an elite level in middle and long distance running.

Professor Telford is a high performance coach and one of Australia’s best known sports scientists. He currently coaches Australian Commonwealth Games marathon medalists Lisa Weightman, Michael Shelley and Australian Mile record holder Lisa Corrigan who also spoke at the seminar.

Altitude training benefits for runners

Classic altitude training involves training and living at between 1800m to 3000m for a period of two to three weeks (Saunders, et al 2009). The primary benefit of this type of living and training arrangement is to stimulate the production of red blood cells and therefore increase the ability of the body to transport oxygen to the muscles via the bloodstream. Red blood cell count could increase by as much as 7% over a period of three weeks.  This is in effect the natural way to achieve similar outcomes that some athletes use to cheat by using banned EPO.  Additional potential benefits of altitude training are improvements in running economy (Saunders et al 2004) and the ability of the body to tolerate the production of lactic acid. These benefits tend to manifest somewhat faster than increases in red blood cells.

Relative benefits of altitude training for runners

As runners and coaches we have a mind-boggling set of decisions about how to construct and orient an effective training program. The complexity lies in the choices about where to focus effort and how to achieve maximum bang-for-buck in improving a personal best time and/or long term development of running potential. These choices are difficult whether you are coaching junior athletes, club runners, recreational runners or an Olympic hopeful. The diagram below indicates a number of areas of focus that can be used by runners and coaches to stimulate improvements.
