Abstract

Short term heat acclimation (STHA) is a preferred regime for athletes, since it is easier to adopt when sustaining quality training and tapering performance in the weeks prior to competition. Females have been reported to establish an enhance sudomotor function following STHA; however, they require long term HA to establish cardiovascular and thermoregulatory adaptation [1]. The current study, assessed the effectiveness of five days of controlled hyperthermia HA, combined with a restricted sweat evaporation exposure, to elicit thermoregulatory, cardiovascular and sudomotor adaptation.
