PURPOSE Both training and chronic hypoxia act on the autonomic nervous system. Because trained Andean high-altitude natives could perform a high-altitude marathon (4220 m above sea level) in 02:27:23 h, we hypothesized that living in chronic hypoxia does not limit the training-induced benefits on the autonomic modulation of the heart. METHODS Trained (N=13) and sedentary (N=11) Andean high-altitude natives performed an active orthostatic test. Eight of the trained subjects repeated the test 6… CONTINUE READING
