ALTITUDE TRAINING
Training in altitude, not only for the panorama and the cold temperature.

The improvement of athletic performance is due to the improved capacity of use of oxygen, the so-called aerobic metabolism.

In the mountains the pressure of oxygen gradually decreases the more you rise and the physiological mechanism that triggers is the production of new red blood cells: the cells that are able to carry oxygen.

More red blood cells = more circulating oxygen = improved athletic performance.

The red blood cells also carry iron, so we recommend a period of supplementation with iron and vitamin C before and during the stay.

The ideal altitude to train is over 1500mt above sea level, for a period of three weeks. Do not forget the period of acclimatization.
