    Would that really be beneficial? I understand training at high altitude, but sleeping?

    Depriving your body of oxygen during the most important recovery stage isn't the best.....

    I understand the benefits he is trying to get from the tent.....Oh well best of luck to him.....

    :rofl: Makes sense now that it's Penn doing it.

    For some reason Damon Wayan's character in "The great white hype" just came into mind.

    Right, I'm sure all the competitive cyclist on the tour and TONS of Olympic athletes would do it if it was totally detrimental to their recovery and made their performance suffer via lack of recovery.

    :rolleyes:

    Phazel likes to climb mt Everest every night so that he can sleep at the summit wearing nothing but a snorkel while completely submerged in a barrel of ice water while grappling Hermes in his sleep.

    LOL...I don't want to get in a pissing match with you, but I live in Colorado Springs and actually trained with some of the Olympic athletes and coaches you are inferring too. Their performance is enhanced when they can sustain the oxygen deprivation for an extended period of time 24 hours day. Hence why they have high altitude camps that can last upto a month before some competitions.....The Pikes Peak training is just sick as well as the cog railway run......Anyway my point was it is better to do hypoxic/high altitude training and then get the best recovery you can for your body.....

    Not really....especially if you live at high altitude.....At sea level you have cardio for days.....What is seriously brutal is the 14K plus altitude training.....

    Training and sleeping at high altitude during your training camp is a great idea, as it gets your body used to dealing with lack of oxygen. Its the same reason people go running around with snorkels out of there mouth, as to condition the body to deal with lack of oxygen. This is important during a fight, when your muscles are not getting the oxygen they need to sustain their contractions.

    However where you guys are getting into an argument is in the recovery period. Its a bad idea to sleep at high altitude during recovery week, cause that is your bodies time to well... recover

    Usually most people put a week of recovery and relaxation before their training camp and their fight
