Effects of simulated and real altitude exposure in elite swimmers

Robertson, Eileen; Aughey, Robert J.; Anson, Judith; Hopkins, Will G; Pyne, David


The effect of repeated exposures to natural and simulated moderate altitude on physiology and competitive performance of elite athletes warrants further investigation. This study quantified changes in hemoglobin mass, performance tests, and competitive performance of elite swimmers undertaking a coachprescribed program of natural and simulated altitude training. Nine swimmers (age 21.1 ± 1.4 years, mean 6 SD) completed up to four 2-week blocks of combined living and training at moderate natural...[Show more]
