FIRE UP YOUR BLOOD

The the­ory be­hind altitude train­ing is that in a low-oxy­gen en­vi­ron­ment, the body pro­duces more red blood cells to trans­port oxy­gen. You have to be over 1,500m to ben­e­fit from low-oxy­genated air – St Moritz in Switzer­land (1,856m) and Font Romeu in France (1,850m) are ideal.

PLAN­NING YOUR SES­SION

The benefits wear off af­ter three weeks, so time your altitude camp for around two weeks be­fore your race.
