I feel guilty for making a Phil Heath thread since we have one going on about his apnea already, but I stumbled upon this video while watching that one.

Yikes. He sounds like he's dying while going 1.0mph on a steep incline. I get that he's in Colorado but this is why I have no desire to be that size (not that I ever could be even if I tried). One of the commenters made a good point about bodybuilder's having thick blood, reducing endurance.

Man he’s thick!
and thus why it's so hard for him to walk that incline. That's a duck ton of muscle to move and muscle requires lots of oxygen and doesn't dissapate (spelling?) heat very well.

It's kinda like doing Farmer's Walks 24/7 :eek:

I used to do Farmer's Walks with weights in each hand that totaled 150#. When I walked with it, combined with my bodyweight my shoes were supporting over 300#, and the "squishing" of the soles gave me some insight into what it must feel like to actually weigh 300#. It was an odd feeling.

I wonder if there's an advantage other than cardio performance training and walking at that altitude. I mean maybe an increased RBC count? I bet Heath donates blood pretty regularly

Altitude training will benefit cardio capacity by elevating rbc and also increase cellular respiration... gas exchange efficiency in capillaries. Like most other things, it's use it or lose it and benefits of altitude dissipate within about 2 weeks from what I've read

FYI, I know you didn't say this but the rise in RBC in that altitude is transient and doesn't produce any added danger.

Like Hogan said above about benefits in altitude, you use it or lose it

For a long time I went to Colorado for 1-3 months at a time, several times a year for work. The first 2 weeks is very hard. But after that the body adjusts and walking/training at altitude is the same as at sea level (then when I got back to see level everything felt easier for 1-2 weeks and came back to normal).

For Phil, the altitude now feels "normal" since he lives in Colorado. Walking uphill there is no harder than it is for us at sea level.

The extra effort is totally due to his size, or other factors not related to the altitude.

One thing Worth mentioning is that (as someone pointed out earlier) altitute training/living increases red blood cells count. A thing that steroids also do, thickening the blood. That puts a lot of stress on the heart and whole cardiovascular system.

Spent the weekend in Yosemite National Park a couple weeks ago... Trudging through snow at 6000+ feet = surprise cardio! Helped offset all the pizza and beer!
