For many years, the effect of altitude training on athletic performance has been a topic of interest among coaches, athletes, and sport scientists. Altitude Training and Athletic Performance condenses the latest scientific information into a single, practical source.

Randall L. Wilber, PhD—a sport physiologist at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado—is well qualified to address the physiology of altitude training, limitations to competing and training at altitude, and a host of other popular topics. Altitude Training and Athletic Performance combines a wealth of recent scientific research, as well as the latest training principles and program strategies in one of the most complete and useful texts available on the subject. The book’s practical applied section describes for serious coaches and athletes the how-tos of training and competing at altitude, improving performance, and minimizing health risks and discomfort. Altitude Training and Athletic Performance is a great resource for those seeking coverage of state-of-the-art training strategies such as the “live high–train low” training approach, the “nitrogen house,” supplemental oxygen, and simulated altitude in chambers and tents.

This fascinating book is a thorough review and reference for students and sport scientists. It’s also a valuable guide for coaches and athletes who include altitude training in their overall training program. One of the few books devoted entirely to the subject, Altitude Training and Athletic Performance provides cutting-edge scientific information and practical applications pertinent to this interesting and controversial training method.
