You are required to critically evaluate the impact of altitude exposure and transemeridian air travel on athletic performance. In addition you need to design an appropriate training/pre acclimatisation strategy for an endurance athlete who will compete in Everest marathon in Nepal.
The elevation is 17000ft . You must provide a full reference rationale for your strategy and also consider any nutritional/hydration considerations for travelling and competing at high altitudes. (Supposed that You have all the money that you need). The case study should include : introduction , introduce the topic, presents the effects that both altitude and air travel across multiple has on human physiology and athletic performance .
A detail discussion of circadian rhythms and their effect on physiology is required. Review also current methods of altitude training and strategies to combat jet-lag. Present the different acclimatisation strategies (pros/cons) Present your acclimatisation strategy. You should provide details of how long prior to the race you would start the plan , show what the plan includes (sleeping plans. Rationale: here you should provide a clear and referenced justification for the strategy you proposed in the previous section . Reference the previous research is required to support your rationale
