This article overviews current comprehension of altitude training, which is quite contradictory: many sources declare that altitude training provides no benefits to sea level performances compared to appropriate conventional training while others consider altitude training to be an efficacious and proven tool to enhance high-performance preparation. This contradiction can be partly explained by the variety of individual training responses, i.e., individual predispositions among some athletes to more favourable reactions to altitude exercising. The potential benefits of altitude training for enhancing sea level performance include: (i) improved oxygen delivery to...
