Sleeping At Altitude In An Altitude Tent
High Altitude Tents
The most common and widely accepted technique that's used in altitude training is sleeping at altitude. It's often described using the term: “Live High, Train Low” and first introduced by Benjamin Levine and James Stray-Gundersen. At first glance, the idea of sleeping at an altitude might seem convoluted. How are you going to get to those heights? The trouble that comes with travelling to- or living at high altitudes can easily be avoided with the help of Hypoxico. With an altitude tent, sleeping at high altitudes can easily be simulated. We call this simulated altitude training. While you are sleeping, you will be exposed to hypoxia (or low-oxygen air); during the day, you participate in physical training sessions. And all of this is possible while at sea-level!
What is an altitude tent?
Hypoxico's altitude tent system helps individuals who want to reap the benefits of hypoxic training but are not looking for permanent residence at high altitudes. Living at- or travelling to high altitudes often proves to be difficult. Issues that may arise, such as limited training load in oxygen deficient air, muscle loss, immune system suppression, advanced dehydration and excessive fatigue are things of the past if you decide to make use of a hypoxic tent. With the use of a high altitude sleeping tent, you can easily achieve the benefits that exposure to hypoxia can offer.
Below you will find a case study by Michael Phelps about sleep training in an altitude tent.
