A comparative study on the effect of training at altitude and at sea level on endurance and certain biochemical variables.


The aim of this study was to ascertain the effects of training at altitude (1750 m. PB = 630mmHg) and at sea level (10m, PB = 760mmHg) as well as that of a period of adaptation of originally sea level-trained rats at altitude on endurance capacity. The average run time to exhaustion was 185.3 +/- 3.7 min for rats trained at altitude in comparison with 150.0… (More)
