General implications from the studies in this folder relating to LH-TL and Anaerobic Performance:

  • Changes in acid-base balance and lactate metabolism, resulting in improvements in anaerobic capacity.
  • Improvements in one-off 400-m running performance.
  • Improvements in performance of repeated shorter-distance efforts
  • When the athlete is performing at a high intensity such that the body is accumulating lactic acid, the effort can be maintained for longer before this develops into the "burn"
  • Any given intense effort is less fatiguing for the athlete who has been Living-High Training-Low.
  • Recovery between efforts is improved.
