The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of environmental temperature on power output, muscle activation, body temperature, and perceived physical strain during a dynamic self-paced 100-km cycling trial. Nine endurance-trained male cyclists (mean + or - s: age 31 + or - 6 years; VO(2max) 62.1 + or - 8.5 ml x kg(-1) x min(-1)) completed two 100-km experimental trials, interspersed with five 1-km and four 4-km high-intensity epochs, in hot (34 degrees C) and cold (10 degrees C… CONTINUE READING

Measurements consisted of power output , rectal and skin temperature , muscle activation of vastus lateralis , biceps femoris and soleus , ratings of perceived exertion , thermal sensation and pain intensity in the quadriceps .
Muscle activation of the vastus lateralis , biceps femoris , and soleus was significantly ( P < 0.001 ) correlated with power output and thermal sensation ( r > 0.68 ) but not with perceived pain or exertion .
