To assess the efficacy of neck cooling on cognitive performance following exertional hyperthermia. Twelve healthy men completed two experimental trials [control (CON) and neck cooling collar (NCC)] in a counter-balanced design. They ran on a treadmill at 70 % VO2peak under warm and humid conditions (dry bulb temperature: 30.2 ± 0.3 °C, relative humidity: 71(More)
Background: Current literature evaluating body mass (BM) changes across a variety of running race distances is limited. The primary objective of this study was to profile the range of BM changes across race distances. The secondary objective was to evaluate the prevalence of exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) in runners admitted to the on-site medical(More)
This study examined (1) if changes in gait characteristics could indicate the exertional heat stress experienced during prolonged load carriage, and (2) if gait characteristics were responsive to a heat mitigation strategy. In an environmental chamber replicating tropical climatic conditions (ambient temperature 32°C, 70% relative humidity), 16 males aged(More)
Many longitudinal studies have collected serial body core temperature (T c) data to understand thermal work strain of workers under various environmental and operational heat stress environments. This provides the opportunity for the development of mathematical models to analyse and forecast temporal T c changes across populations of subjects. Such models(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies on Caucasian volunteers have proven that milk is an effective recovery drink for athletes. Such benefit, however, cannot be directly applied to the lactose-intolerant Asian population. This study investigated the effects of ingesting water (WT), sports drink (SPD) and lactose-free milk (LFM) on cycling capacity. METHODS Ten(More)
