Abstract:

The human body does not successfully acclimatize to all environmental stresses. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to summarize the physiological changes which athletes can or cannot make, when exposed to high terrestrial altitude, air pollution, cold, and heat. This article will also present an overview of strategies which may be used during training and competition, to counteract these environmental insults.
