Mountain air and professional sport
A powerful combination: improving endurance capacity/preparing for competition
Studies by the University of Innsbruck have demonstrated that mountain air and professional sport are a powerful combination. The body adapts to the altitude by increasing the production of red blood cells and enhancing metabolic processes. This increases the body's capacity to transport oxygen to all cells, which receive more energy and trigger faster cell division. Circulation in the muscles then improves significantly and stamina increases during training under altitude conditions. This positive effect increases afterwards when the athlete returns from training at altitude to their normal conditions.
