Training in the mountains leads to enhanced health benefits!
The “AMAS 2000 High Altitude Study” investigated the effects which training at medium altitudes has on health. It scientifically proved that holidays combined with training in the mountains mobilise the body’s ability to use up less energy.
Benefits include greater efficiency in the workings of the cardiovascular system, improvements to the blood sugar and blood fat metabolism as well as positive neuropsychological effects, etc.
High-altitude training improves stamina and performance
These positive effects of the stimulating climate in the mountains can be reinforced still further through physical activity. Top athletes have long benefited from this effect by training at high-altitude. For training purposes, a moderate lack of oxygen of around 10–15% is sufficient – and this condition is met at “medium altitude”.
