Effects of the ‘live high–train low’ method on prooxidant/antioxidant balance on elite athletes


Background/Objectives:We previously demonstrated that acute exposure to hypoxia (3 h at 3000 m) increased oxidative stress markers. Thus, by using the ‘living high–training low’ (LHTL) method, we further hypothesized that intermittent hypoxia associated with endurance training alters the prooxidant/antioxidant balance.Subjects/Methods:Twelve elite athletes… (More)
