Livigno: races, structures and pathways for training at high altitude

Exercise taken on high ground acts on the oxygen transport mechanisms and enhances athletic performance. This is why athletes often choose to train at high altitude. The Italian places where they move runners, cyclists, but also entire football teams or other team sports, are numerous. One of the most requested by athletes and sports federations around the world is Livigno. Here, at 1816 meters above sea level, are organized events dedicated to running, the sky running and triathlon.

But it’s not just 75km of new trails, divided into six unique paths to the type of training and technical nature, with the characteristics of being located all above 2000 meters in the Mountain Park Carousel 3000, the highest ski area in Europe dedicated to running, to attract sports. In addition to the altitude and the breathtaking views, play a fundamental role services that Livigno is able to offer to the teams and athletes: modern sports facilities and evolving and accommodation related to product clubs Active, as the center Aquagranda Active you, with equipped rooms, a 25-meter pool (it is planned the construction of the tank by 50 meters) and soon also an athletics track to complete the sports offer.

And then there are the events: for lovers of mountain running. the Livigno Summer begins on June 26 with the first edition of Livigno SkyMarathon, competition skyrunning Skyrunning inserted in the World Series, 34 km to go with an elevation gain of 2600 meters. For those, however, want to try their hand on the short course is also provided a proof of 16/17 km with a height difference of about 1000 meters, which winds along the Val Federia. Among the excellence of this circuit there is the descent from the Carosello 3000 and the Costa del Sol up to intercept the route of Skyrunning World Series. Registration is open until June 15 for Skyrunning until 31 May for the race brief Trail Livigno at a cost of EUR 25 and up to 23 June at a cost of 30 Euros.

The runners quieter, however, it is dedicated Stralivigno, the classic half-marathon of Little Tibet, which takes place on July 23 with Ministralivigno, reserved for children and young people, scheduled for the next day. Registrations can be made at this link and up to June 17, cost 25 euro.

Find the extreme racing, can not miss the first edition of Icon Livigno Xtreme Triathlon, running race, swimming and cycling calendar in September 3. 3.8 km swim, 195 km bike, run 42.2 km are the numbers that predict great show for this premiere in the world of extreme long distance races of multidisciplinary. Registrations can be made at this link and are open until 30 June.

High Altitude Training

One of the aspects in which many amateurs ape professionals is the legendary altitude training. They exploit the holidays to go to the mountains to train: If you go back to the stronger merit of the rise, if you go slower you are not yet acclimated. So much good will, but zero scientific notions.

The first blunder – Many people think:

at altitude it goes slower because there is less oxygen.

From a scientific point of view, the phrase has no thickness; for comparison, it is as if you say to a mathematician that two triangles have the same area (the areas are equivalent!) or to an economist that “the economy is bad because there is less work”. What does it mean that there is less work? That the unemployment rate rose? That a young man is more difficult to find work? Which decreased the number of employees? The “less” does not say anything because it is not clear which unit of measurement is used, is a term that is used by those who attempt a crude explanation of the problem.

The air composition is practically stable up to 80-100 km altitude; both at sea level and at altitude, the oxygen percentage is more than 21% (condition A). What changes is the atmospheric pressure. Since air is a mixture of compressible gas, the atmospheric pressure decreases with height (condition B). The effect of these two conditions is that the oxygen partial pressure decreases (each gas in a mixture exerts a partial pressure).

In fact, on every book of exercise physiology you will find that:

with the share reduces the oxygen partial pressure.

The partial pressure of the oxygen in the air mixture is due to the total atmospheric pressure for its concentration:

partial pressure = atmospheric pressure * concentration.

The pulmonary exchanges (which are of type diffusive) depend on the partial pressures of the gases. If the oxygen partial pressure in the alveoli is 100 mmHg, and that of oxygen in the blood is 40 mmHg is not difficult to understand that oxygen tends to pass from the alveoli into the blood in order to balance the pressure.

If the air oxygen partial pressure decreases, this process of passage of oxygen in the blood will be slowed down. It is what happens in the deep sea.

The second blunder – Resides in the sentence:

I made a good altitude training: fifteen days at 1,200 m.

To understand why the “good” is too necessary to consider what happens in the blood where oxygen binds to hemoglobin. Consider hemoglobin as the bus which receives oxygen molecules that arrive and that then transports in the various areas of the body. Without this bond it is as if the bus never arrived. Unfortunately, the hemoglobin does not always work the same way. Its effectiveness depends on how they get the oxygen molecules. It is as if the driver opened the bus doors for a few moments: those who are too slow or distracted can not go up. Depending on the speed of the passengers is possible to calculate how much they will go up. It is a question of hemoglobin dissociation curve. With a partial pressure of 100 mmHg of oxygen (the normal at sea level; the outside of the body the oxygen partial pressure is about 160 mmHg, in the inspired air, which is saturated with water vapor and air already flawed from the respiratory tract, is reduced until you get in the alveolar air at 100 mmHg) hemoglobin saturation is 98%, that is, in our metaphor rises to 98% of the oxygen molecules arriving bus. If the pressure drops to 40 mmHg only 75% of the salt molecules, that is, the hemoglobin is saturated to 75%.

Since the partial pressure at altitude is lower, the less hemoglobin binds oxygen. This is why high altitude you go slower in the aerobic tests. But beware: the hemoglobin saturation curve is NOT linear with the partial pressure of oxygen and thus the height to which we are. It has a sigmoid shape: if saturated with 10 mmHg to 10%, saturated with 40 mmHg to 75%, with 60 mm Hg of pressure already saturated to 90% while with 100 mmHg saturated, as said, to 98%.

Translating all in height, hemoglobin saturation is 95% to 1200 m, a difference of 3% compared to sea level. Very significant in the case of the performance of a single race, but not significant in the case of training. In fact one of the sports physiology principles is that:

fluctuations caused by acclimatization depends on the magnitude of the variation and duration of exposure.

A variation of only 3% requires an exposure period eight times longer than a variation of 24% (5000 m). Therefore the benefits that are acquired at 1200 m with 15 days are equivalent to those you have in two days at 5000 m. Obviously these talks are sketchy, but tend to make people understand how one can define

altitude training that effected at elevations higher than 1,800 m.

Altura and doping (1) – a given practice is necessary to detect before continuing:

if the height easily produce the benefits we would not need doping (erythropoietin).

Indeed, the high ground has often been misused to justify performance achieved by the intake of EPO. Many physiologists have exposed this attempt and this should illuminate the coaches who feel the deep sea with a clean alternative to doping. We will return to this point.

effects of the rise – We have seen that the main problem is the altitude hypoxia, that is, the reduced oxygen partial pressure (not, as might suggest the term, the reduced amount of oxygen!). Hypoxia causes an impressive array of effects, including even death if the altitude is considerable (over 5000 m) and the subject is not acclimated.

The main visible effect of hypoxia hyperventilation. Dempsey and Schone have studied the problem from a quantitative point of view (qualitatively not take a rocket scientist to understand that not rushing Himalayas ago sbanfare more!). Briefly, the receptors (chemoreceptors) in charge of monitoring the oxygen partial pressure send their alarm that triggers an increase in the depth and rate of breathing. Unfortunately (Torre-Bueno, 1985), this mechanism does not compensate for the reduced partial pressure due to the height and performance deteriorates beyond a certain proportion. It should be noted that hyperventilation is subjective, it is possible that some individuals react better to hypoxia. It is also essential to know that the damage from hypoxia are not the same for the different tissues; the muscle responds better than nervous: the subject would be able to exert more muscle strength if the central nervous system react in the same way (in fact beyond a certain point the muscles still work, but the subject loses consciousness!).

The second effect of hypoxia is the increase in cardiac output which is realized with an increased frequency. It also increases the systemic blood pressure due to an increased secretion of plasma catecholamines (noradrenaline and adrenaline; to 4,300 m there is an increase that goes from 50 to 90%, Surks).

Risks – It is quite clear that the benefits of the rise are such only if the choice for altitude training is remarkable. Train at 3000 m is much more interesting that train at 1800 m. The problem is that the greater the risk. There are three main diseases related high place: acute mountain sickness (headache, dizziness, nausea, constipation, vomiting, insomnia, typical of the units above 2500 m, begins a few hours after arrival at altitude and resolves in a few days ), high altitude pulmonary edema (typical for higher than 3000 m shares, occurs 12 to 96 hours after the arrival), high altitude cerebral edema (affects about 1% of patients in excess of 2,700 m and can reach to coma and death if not treated properly). Other complications (retinal hemorrhage) occur for typically alpine altitudes (6000 m). Since even the simple, but common, acute mountain sickness penalizes physical activity, typically the living room is limited to altitudes of less than 2,500 m, but this obviously also reduces the possible benefits of altitude.

Altura and doping (2) – After knowing the risks of the rise, the question arises why it is moral to stimulate the physical with the rise and immoral stimulate it with doping. If doping is bad because the high seas should be good? In fact the simple fact that the rise is natural and the external administration of EPO is not an entirely marginal, indeed proves that not everything that is natural is good. The high ground stresses the physical just like an artificial dose of erythropoietin, a multitude being in the literature for both cases of serious problems situations (including death). This fact is demonstrated by the position of some coaches who rightly now are more interested in the practical benefits of the rise that those “physiological.” I quote the excellent text on the marathon for evolved athletes Arcellis-Canova: “in many cases today, it is preferred to train at an intermediate position (around 1,000 m), where you can find the environmental benefits of a cool temperature and flatter than the high mountain trails, without running the risks associated with the share of more than 2,000 meters. ”

The long-term effects – If hyperventilation, increased cardiac output (by increasing the frequency) and blood pressure are short-term effects, for training is also interesting to study the long-term effects. One of the consequences is the hyperventilation respiratory alkalosis (increase in plasma pH) which manifests itself with a greater elimination of bicarbonates and therefore a decreased buffering capacity of lactic acid. This long-term consequence is particularly bad because the body in an attempt to restore lost balances assumes an abnormal breathing rhythm (the so-called periodic breathing).

long-term positive factors are the increase of the plasma mass and an increase in red blood cells; both they combine to increase the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. The increase of red blood cells is carried out for an increased production of erythropoietin following hypoxia (within 15 hours after the stimulus). As shown by the studies Reynafarje and Groves, the increased production of red blood cells is maintained until the subject remains at altitude. Because the hematopoietic cycle lasts seven days or so, it must be a week before it establishes an increase in hematocrit. With a stay at 4,000 m hematocrit may increase from 43 to 48 (Hannon).

Agrees to train at high altitude? – To answer necessary to summarize the well-established research contributions:

it takes two weeks to acclimatise to 2,300 m and an extra week for every 500-600 m (Maresh);
in the first week it is impossible to perform heavy workouts (Kollian);
with the stay at altitude increases oxygen transport by the blood, but decreases the maximum oxygen consumption, ie aerobic power (10% per 1,000 m starting from 1,500 m, Buskirk, Cymerman, Pugh, Squires).

Returning to the sea blood values return to normal level in two weeks, while the maximum oxygen consumption tends to become again what primitive faster. Because the former is a positive factor, while the second is negative must hit (times are obviously individual) on the day when the budget is in favor of the athlete. This explains the failure of many stays at high altitude.

In addition to the first two points it is difficult to play an effective workout while staying on high ground, a factor which further makes it problematic to draw some benefit from the quota.

There are many studies (among which the best known is Adams) that demonstrate how the training at high altitude is not particularly significant in improving the performance of the subject. It should be clear by now that it is really unrealistic to hope to benefit from a simple week in a mountain resort! The best strategy is therefore that suggested by Arcellis-Canova and many other technical: living around 1,200 m with climate benefits evident in the summer.

Training Mask: Training with the Mask

The benefits derived from training with this mask are:
– Increasing the anaerobic threshold
– Increase efficiency of oxygenation of the blood
– Increased energy levels
– Increased levels of resistance to physical stress and mental
– Increased ability to work in oxygen deficiency
– Training of the diaphragm.

Source: Article Dr. Frank Wyatt’s.

“The purpose of this breathing device is to limit the intake of air (ventilation.) And thus lead to reduced oxygen consumption. With the reduced oxygen intake of the athlete he works harder for each workload. This is the premise for simulating exposure to high altitudes. The oxygen pressure in the portion is reduced, leading to a reduced oxygen supply. ”

According to research done by Rice University in Houston, altitude training has the following long-term effects:

increase in the concentration of red blood cells
Maximum cardiac output reduction with a reduced maximum heart rate, doing the same amount of work
a chemical change within red blood cells that makes more efficient exhaust oxygen to the tissues

Not only the gas mask serves to improve the physiology of the red blood cells and increase the capacity for oxygen intake, but also works to strengthen the respiratory system of the body. Even in this case, to quote Dr. Wyatt in his study:

I have worked with my ventilation muscles (for example, the diaphragm, intercostal) greatly. This is a real positive result in the field of education research has shown that muscle fatigue followers to ventilation, during endurance races leading to performance degradation.

Coincidentally, gas mask, also produces another phenomenon in the body and has something to do with carbon dioxide, or CO2. As you breathe in the enclosed space inside the mask, they tend to re-CO2 breath. This phenomenon is called hypercapnia. Hypercapnia back in the muscle tissues of the body, creating a state devoid of oxygen, increasing fatigue.

Imagine taking off due to the mask, and without the mask. It would be the same thing ?.

Do not be fooled by Wikipedia. The lower hypercapnia gas masks produce is no bad thing. In fact, this phenomenon also promotes the opening of the breathing passages. This is referred to as broncho-dilation. Increasing the broncho-dilation, you can increase the mass flow of air into and out of the lungs. Finally, it can actually stimulate response ventilation to allow increased movement of air into and out of the lungs through the CO2 re-breathing. The carbon dioxide was flagged as a stimulant for the ventilation so that when the increases are indicated in the blood, ventilation is increased.

Last but not least, we have a word to Sean Sherk, one of the creators of the Elevation Training Mask.

“The gas mask not only simulates a high altitude environment and restricts the flow ossigen but also causes a claustrophobic effect. Train in these conditions allows the body to require less oxygen while you exercise and also teaches you to relax in a situation of intense claustrophobic workout. Coupled with appropriate training on MMA techniques, using a mask every day my body becomes acclimated to need less oxygen, which gives me a physical and mental edge to defend chokes and stay fresh and focused in the championship rounds. “

Elevation Training Mask: Need or No Need?

In combat sports it has made its way training with the mask. This type of training seems to promise great benefits, developing all those adaptations that occur with training at altitude. It is that really so? Thanks all’elevation mask training will no longer out of breath? What’s true?

evation mask training in combat sports

From a website that sells the evation mask training reads:

“… The Elevation Training Mask encounters all competitive athletes who want to increase their lung resistance training your body in a controlled situation of lack of oxygen.”

That’s already here unfortunately we can guess the markettara component of the project as always never substantiated by scientific data or “numbers” that bear witness to the actual goodness. Because in reality the% O2 is the same (21%), whether you are on a pedal boat to the sea, whether you are on board an SR-71 to 25km altitude. What decreases in case the partial pressure of O2 is not its quantity in the atmosphere.

Anyway, let’s focus on understanding what is the goal of this tool, and we try to figure out if you really can achieve this target, or as often happens, it is just another publicity stunt.

In short, the Elevation Training Mask aims to reproduce artificially in athletes the benefits of altitude training in conditions of hypoxia and hypercapnia (increased carbon dioxide in the blood).
The altitude training

For years and years, particularly in cycling and in endurance sports he tried to figure out how to play and artificially reproduce the benefits and typical physiological adaptations dell’allenarsi at high altitudes. There are studies on studies that have analyzed and dissected what occurs under hypoxic conditions, without going into so much detail we can briefly list some of the physiological adaptations that occur at the level of cardio-respiratory system, energy reference system and muscular system in an athlete who undergoes altitude training:

– Increased hematocrit

– Increased concentration of hemoglobin

– Increased capacity of O2 transport speed in the blood

– Increase of red blood cells

– Increase of oxidative enzymes

– Increase in the number of mitochondrial density

– Increased capillary density in skeletal muscle

In practice, therefore, the set of all these adaptations, would then, once returned to the classical share at sea level, to enhance those which are the characteristics of efficiency of the aerobic energy system and conditional capacity related as: Aerobic capacity linked to the optimization of Cardiac output, Aerobic capacity linked to the increase in lactic threshold and Aerobic Power referred to the maximum O2 consumption (VO2Max), to further laws: Running serves a SDC practitioner ?.

The conditional is necessary because several studies in this regard are strongly contrasting actual veracity of these benefits once the athlete returns to the normal rate conditions.
On the Elevation mask training problem

Then it serves or does not serve Elevation Training Mask? Invention of the century or bullshit? To answer you do not need to say YES or NO, just precisely indicate a trivial problem …. It ‘very simple and is called ACCLIMATIZATION: ie, the physiological and bioenergetic adaptations that accrue from training in low pressure conditions of O2 avvengo ONLY and ONLY after a period of adaptation to new conditions, a period ranging from several days up to some weeks. This implies, that gasping half an hour a day wearing the mask not only NOT DETERMINE ‘NO ADAPTATION than sought, because the exposure time to the “new conditions” will be absolutely superfluous. (Generally, from studies, it takes two weeks to acclimatize to an altitude of 2300 m. Next, you need to calculate a week for every 500-600 m of altitude up to 4500 m.)

Also a workout with influence ‘NEGATIVE mask all those that are the same quality training components:

1) LOW INTENSITY ‘effort to parity with consequent decrease of the optimal dose in terms of volume and same intensity
2) TECHNICAL WORKOUTS DISRUPTED PERFORMANCE IN NEGATIVE which increases the risk of accidents.

So speaking as the bar, do a functional circuit with the Mask for 10-15-20 minutes not only will not achieve the sought-physiological adaptations and typical of the true altitude training, but will also reduce the intensity of effort because for inevitably you will have less breath. then at the same time, due to increased fatigue, will also soil the exercise technique that often unfortunately is already perceived as unwatchable in this kind of training.
It ‘s all garbage?

scientific critical analysis to be such has to consider its strengths and weaknesses. then objectively the use of Mask can bring some benefits. These relate more than others to the strengthening of the respiratory muscles, both those used to ‘inhale both those related to exhalation, and without going into too much detail, we talk about: Diaphragm, intercostals, parasternal, abdominal etc.

The specific of the Mask filter, based on the level of resistance to air, allows only a certain amount day air, the athlete will be subsequently called to aumentere the frequency and intensity of breathing going to act on the muscles involved directly in these. In itself, the strengthening of the muscles used for breathing is definitely an interesting adaptation, remains questionable how useful, however, in contact sports (little).

For those looking for this kind of usually adaptations are athletes of extreme sports such as deep apnea and Mountaineering in high altitudes mostly.

It should be remembered that what we perceive as a lack of oxygen is actually the need to expel more carbon dioxide, not a lack of this element. In addition, at the physiological level, the bottleneck does not occur in the lung but at the peripheral level through the oxygen transport.
Get out of breath has little to do with the ability of the respiratory muscles to contract.
Conclusions sull’elevation training mask

Often this site has tried to make it clear: “When the wise man points at the moon, the fool looks at the finger …” Try to reason therefore always with a minimum of scientific and critical, the study of exercise physiology helps us in this.

During the Copa America Cup in Bolivia played teams from countries with relatively low altitudes, such as Brazil, have gone 10 days before the other to adapt to the new share (acclimation period), they are certainly not trained at the beach wearing some type of mask.

Elevation Training Mask 2.0 Review

In this training Mask 2.0 review, we will consider the health effects of the mask High altitude training and its impact on the transport of oxygen and oxygenation of the body. This helps us to understand why, for example, Pete Jacobs, 2012 Iron man World Champion, uses Training Mask.

The Elevation Training Mask is a breathing device which is similar to military gas masks (version 1 of the Training Mask). Version 2 or 2.0 is simpler because it does not restrict the vision of the eye (see image at right).

Many people assume that the Elevation Training Mask is just another breathing apparatus that is created to strengthen the respiratory muscles and mimic the effects of high altitude. However, High Altitude Training Mask it is not by chance that people claim more benefits after using the comparison forming mask with other resistive devices.

When a person uses the mask of altitude training, he or she also knows the reduced oxygen flow. However, in addition to lowering the O2, the mask increases the body CO2 content. Breathing is mainly governed by the arterial CO2 (except for those who are seriously ill from chronic diseases).

These other training masking effects and are reviewed by Dr. Artur Rakhimov, an individual coach of two world champions: Elevation Training Mask 2.0 Review.

When a person breathes with resistance, he or she receives less oxygen to the lungs. The Training Mask can be used with various valves to model high altitude similar sensations. However, when the person has high altitude, he or she has an increased ventilation, high altitude training mask UK which leads to reduced CO2 levels in the lungs, arterial blood and other cells in the body (let us ignore people ventilation -perfusion mismatch here). The drive mask is used during different forms of exercise by people who practice yoga, martial arts, extreme sports, climbing and so on. Is this just another similar respiratory gadget POWER Breathe, Expand-A-Lung, and some other devices used by athletes and holders for sports and racing?

High Altitude Training Mask Product Reviews

On the flip side, there were some problems. I wear glasses and mask did not work so well with them. Also, I have a giant head, and then I appropriate size in the chart Training Mask sizes, I think it is a bit too small for me. It is always comfortable, but I worry about the long-term structure where the Velcro because of how it extends to put it on. Thus, when choosing a size, keep the circumference of your dome in mind.
forming mask, elevation mask, training of elevation, the mask of 2.0And training I have to say, I appreciate it. It’s a funny feeling that can cause some panic at first, High Altitude Training Mask but once you get past the feeling of needing to breathe against the resistance, it is for a workout that will leave you breathless, but in a good way . Oh, and it’s right on the first level. There are several levels. The drive Mask created a nice warm room, completely enclosing my nose and mouth. This had a gentle warming effect which was great. I also noticed a mild stimulant effect on my heart rate during prolonged heating that may have given me increased heart profit.

Besides enjoying, I like the idea behind more training elevation anyway. The diaphragm, which controls your breathing is a muscle after all. The formation of the membrane is a long tradition in some of the coolest physical culture and, really, I’ve never found a better way to do it.

There are some side effects that I noticed bonus too. First of all, I live in the north, and winter travel can be a pain, in part, because of the cold breath.

The elevation training has been a subject of considerable controversy in recent times. It seems that science is moving away from the concept as an effective way to develop aerobic capacity. In theory, the formation of elevation would increase your red blood cells in the blood, but you may have heard the arguments against now. It only works if you sleep at high altitude,high altitude training mask reviews it is only effective if you are competing at altitude, and so on.

These kinds of arguments could deter you from buying a product called an “elevation mask.” While training Mask 2.0 is marketed as an altitude simulation, and in some ways it is, what the mask actually does is force you to breathe against the resistance. so, rather than thinning somehow the level of air you breathe oxygen, it just takes more effort to breathe. This is like if you get a lung workout in a way that you do not usually get.

Training Device Review: Conclusion

It can greatly amplify the positive effects of high altitude training mask if he or she combines exercise done with the Training Mask with lifestyle changes that increase body O2 content (see the learning section) l ‘altitude training .High provides adaptation to hypoxia (increased hemoglobin levels and other related effects). This is why in altitude training is classified as hypoxic training. This is logical since high altitude only reduces the O2 content in the inspired air.

Note that most people can effectively use this mask for cardio exercise only when they get more than 20 seconds for the test-body oxygen. Control of breathing during exercise and flexibility (using different resistances) is possible when you have more than 25 to 30 seconds for the test-body O2 One of the key factors that makes it effective training mask is the dead volume increased (see image for numbers).

The mask drive also reduces the O2 content in inspired air conditioning body to hypoxia,High Altitude Training Mask but the formation of mask also increases the CO2 content in the lungs. This effect is not present at high altitudes. Therefore, it is an example of the hypoxic hypercapnic training that has additional benefits due to adaptation to higher CO2.

How to increase the positive effects of the (management experience) Training Mask
This large dead volume makes training Elevation Mask 2.0 similar to Frolov device Samozdrav, and an incredible DIY breathing device, high altitude training mask sleeves which are used to stand for breathing exercises. Many people can do breathing exercises while walking (and often with better results). However, this training mask near a perfect method to combine the most effective breathing exercises with physical activity for better health and body-O2 and VO2max. Therefore, when they say that the mask simulates high altitude training, do not believe that.
