Rod Cedaro on Training

As an exercise physiologist who’s played in this space for the best part of 20 years, I’ve experienced first-hand the benefits associated with altitude exposure. While these are not huge, they are certainly significant – particularly at the top end. Altitude training won’t turn a donkey into a world-beating thoroughbred, but, if you’re training and recovering well, got your nutrition down pat, have optimised your equipment and are at your optimal race weight, then altitude training could provide the edge over your competitors.
It is no coincidence that not so long ago in the athletic world, every world record in the 800 metres to the marathon was held by an athlete who either lived or at least trained at altitude or used some form of altitude simulation routinely as part of their training regimen. Locations such as Boulder, St Moritz and Flagstaff have become synonymous with endurance sport training.
