My only comment here is that you can train just as hard at altitude as sea level. For me training at altitude seems harder than sea level. He should have said that you can’t train as fast at altitude for aerobic activities as you can at sea level. You can actually long jump further at altitude than you can at sea level and you can run a faster 100m at altitude than you can at sea level. Also, I will note that you don’t have to live high train low to be successful. There are many athletes that live high and train high. I think this is from changing your body’s understanding of high and low. For example if you live at 7,500ft and do your easy runs at 9,000ft and your workouts at 6,000ft and you do that long enough you will change your body’s understanding of high and low.
