  • High Altitude Training

    Hello!

    So I am on a travel nurse assignment in northern New Mexico where the altitude is about 6000'. I live in Florida at sea level. In your experience how much and for how long does a big change in altitude affect anaerobic training, ie; strength training? I'm a little weaker than normal but it could also be life stress with the new job and long travel in the car. I've only been here a week.

    To an extent, it will depend on your baseline conditioning level. The more conditioned you are, the less of an effect you'll notice on your strength performance (particularly for lower-rep / lower-volume efforts).

    With that said, if you've been there for a week, your system has already completed its adaptations to the altitude.

      I’ve been at 12000 ft for the last week. For me it took 5 days to really acclimate. After that I still noticed a little difference but not too much. The more reps the more obvious difference (at the risk of being Captain Obvious)

        Well my conditioning is pretty abysmal so that makes sense.
