OBJECTIVES In thermoneutral conditions, half-time is associated with reductions in body temperature that acutely impair performance. This laboratory-based study compared active, passive, and combined methods of half-time heat maintenance. DESIGN Randomised, counterbalanced, cross-over. METHODS After a standardised warm-up (WU) and 15min of rest, professional Rugby Union players (n=20) completed a repeated sprint test (RSSA1). Throughout a simulated half-time (temperature: 20.5±0.3°C… CONTINUE READING
