Effectiveness of short-term acclimation has generally been undertaken using untrained and moderately-trained participants. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of short-term (5-day) heat acclimation on highly trained athletes. Eight males (mean ± SD age 21.8 ± 2.1 years, mass 75.2 ± 4.6 kg, $$ \dot{V}$$ O2peak 4.9 ± 0.2 L min−1 and power output 400 ± 27 W) were heat acclimated under controlled hyperthermia (rectal temperature 38.5°C), for 90-min on five consecutive days (T a… CONTINUE READING
