Altitude training is a common practice for elite endurance athletes. Usually, athletes do altitude training several times during the season, in 2-4-week stages. Altitude training (1600-2400 metres) is a method to improve performance that appeared for the first time at 1968 Olympic Games. Under those circumstances athletes suffer hypoxia, that leads to a bunch of compensatory mechanisms that can help athletes to improve his performance in future competitions. The most important mechanism is the EPO mediated increase in red blood cells number. Athletes increase their training load in this period and it´s obvious that nutritional requirements are going to change as well, and maybe adapt your nutrition before the stage starts could be a useful strategy.
