Description

A product of the collaboration between a sports physiologist and mountain sports enthusiast and one of the world's most distinguished mountain-sport athletes, this study examines the main body systems involved in exercise at high altitudes, discussing their capacity for adaptation and their limits. It looks at some of the common problems that affect high-altitude athletes, including bronchial hyperresponsiveness, hypoxia, and oxidative stress, and presents essential anatomical and physiological elements clearly and concisely through annotations and full-color photographs and figures. Each chapter also features Kilian Jornet's comments on his strategy for dealing with his own body's limitations and his training regimen, which he supplements with physiological data.show more

Review Text

Esta obra didáctica es fruto de la colaboración entre Kilian Jornet, gran campeón de la resistencia en lugares de montaña, i Fabienne Durand, fisióloga del ejercicio apasionada por la montaña. El libro nos propone analizar los principales sistemas del organismo que participan del ejercicio, sus adaptaciones y sus límites en el contexto de la altitud. Se abordan problemas característicos de los atletas entrenados en la resistencia, como la hipereactividad bronquial, la hipoxemia del ejercicio o el estrés oxidativo. Se presentan un conjunto de elementos ineludibles, tanto del orden anatómico como fisiológico, de manera clara y sintética, complementados con apuntes, fotografías y figures a todo color. Para ilustrar estas contribuciones científicas, en cada capítulo Kilian Jornet nos revela sus estrategias relativas al esfuerzo y sus límites, así como informaciones sobre la realidad de su práctica. Nos explica cómo utilizar sobre el terreno los datos fisiológicos para optimizar su entrenamiento.show more
