While there is some controversy whether anaerobic capacity might be improved after altitude training little is known about changes in anaerobic capacity during hypoxic exposure in highly trained athletes. In order to analyze the effects of acute moderate normobaric hypoxia on anaerobic capacity, 18 male competitive triathletes, middle- and long-distance runners $$(\dot{V}\hbox{O}_2{\rm max} \, 67.4 \pm 3.8\,\hbox{ml}\,\hbox{kg}\,\hbox{min}^{-1})$$ performed 2 supra- $$\dot{V}\hbox{O}_2{\rm max… CONTINUE READING
