Live High and Train Low? In this episode, Dr. Jinger Gottschall and Mac Cassin dive into the basics of altitude. The Definition, long-term and short-term responses, submaximal and maximum intensities. And then finally, a few strategies for training. From Sea Level to the Death Zone we help you understand Altitude in order to train and race effectively. Enjoy it! It’s Nice!

Less O2 at altitude. This is both right and wrong depending on what you mean by less. As you state the percentage is the same. However, part of the effect of lower pressure is because the molecules are less packed together, so there is less of everything per cubic centimeter, the air is less dense – that is also why there is less aero drag and you can fly downhill. % stays same, total molecules per CC (density) reduces. But I am just giving you stick. Another great show especially on adaptation, diet/fluid intake.
