Shownotes

In this episode:

There is a longstanding belief that living and maybe training at altitude confers benefits on performance especially when an athlete goes to compete at a lower level. The science on this matter is a little less certain. Yes, there are physiological adaptations that occur but do these actually translate in to better results? I review the evidence. Plus, an interview with Skye Moench:

Skye is a professional triathlete who specializes in long-course triathlon. She is a multiple Ironman and 70.3 Champion. In 2021, Skye ended the year ranked 7th in the PTO World Rankings.
