Altitude Tent Roy Hinnen
ALTITUDE TRAINING with altitude tent and mask
Altitude training has become established as a component part of successful competition preparation in pretty much every kind of endurance sport because the reduced oxygen can set in train a number of positive adjustment processes.

Altitude training with a tent:
• Sleep in the altitude tent (sleep high, train low)
• Training with mask, IHT (Intermittent Hypoxic Training) Passive
• Training with mask, IHT (Intermittent Hypoxic Training) Active

• There are three phases to sleeping in the altitude tent: days one to seven at 1600 m asl., days seven to 14 at 1600–1700 m asl., and day 14 to day 31 at 1700–1800 m asl. I recommend sleeping in the altitude tent until two days before the competition if your journey to the competition location is short enough to allow this. You do not sleep in the altitude tent the last two nights before the race. Measure the oxygen saturation in your blood with a heart-rate oximeter. The oxygen saturation should be between 90 and 92% in each of  the three phases. If it falls below 90 per cent, reduce the altitude in the tent. It takes 10h per day for 4 weeks in the tent.

• Active training with the mask: in active training with mask, it is best to  ride gently on the roller for 60-90 minutes once a week so that the saturation reaches about 88% (1800m asl). Very intensive intervals with long rests  are completed once a week. The secret of success here is the interplay between oxygen-reduced air and and all-out effort over 30 seconds with rests in the normal ambient air. I get the athletes to ride flat out for 30 seconds eight times with the mask set at 3000m asl, with five minutes rest in the normal ambient air. As a progression, the mask can be kept on, in which case the rests have to be increased to ten minutes. It takes several minutes until the body has recovered from the strain on the bike and is ready for the next interval. If it is done properly, this extreme loading stimulates positive adaptations in the body. Note though: check your oxygen saturation level with the heart-rate oximeter and don’t go below 78–80 per cent.

• Passive training with mask is where we try to reach an altitude of 3750-4000m asl at rest when breathing via a mask with a hose attachment. I get the athletes to do this passive training twice a week for 90 minutes. The altitude is regulated so that the oxygen content of the blood falls to about 80-85 per cent.

Criticism from those who wish to claim altitude training exclusively for themselves? Simulated altitude/hypoxia in a tent gives athletes an opportunity to improve in a legal way, if they value altitude at all. Altitude training is there for everyone though!

Advantages of sleeping in an altitude tent

• Increase in the maximum oxygen absorption of up to six per cent
• Increased fat metabolism
• Can be integrated into training in your usual social environment
• Cost saving compared to conventional altitude training

Purchase costs

I sell an altitude tent, generator, oximeter, mask and altimeter for CHF 4950. The appliance that I prefer delivers sufficient volumes of at least 120l/min so that active training on the Hometrainer or treadmill can be carried out with the mask.

Rental Costs
It is worth trying out the method with the tent, especially for newcomers or people in jobs who can’t travel to an altitude training camp for three or four weeks at a stretch. Rental for four weeks including training instructions and exact details about:
• Training with the mask, IHT (Intermittent Hypoxic Training) passive
• Training with the mask, IHT (Intermittent Hypoxic Training) active
costs CHF 490.-.

Please reserve early.
