    This research study focuses upon an alternative to hypoxia, which is Intermittent Hypoxic Exposure that could be theoretically used to maintain the same athletic performance that athletes obtain when living in high altitude environments. Researchers sought to compare whether there was an ability to maintain the same running and blood characteristics for elite athletes who run triathlons when using IHE in comparison to when these athletes lived in high altitudes. After conducting a research trial involving ...

    Solution Summary

    Using three references, the effectiveness of training and living at low/high altitudes are outlined.
