PURPOSE To contrast the effects of three postcooling techniques in reducing body core temperature (Tc) in exercise-induced hyperthermic participants on the cessation of exercise. METHODS Eleven healthy active male volunteers were cooled during a 40-min period using three different methods: ice packs to the neck, axillae, and groin (ICE); water spray and fan (FAN); and 2 L of chilled (20 degrees C) intravenous saline administered during a 20-min period (IV). Rate of decrease in Tc… CONTINUE READING
