The vasomotor response to cold may compromise the capacity for microclimate cooling (MCC) to reduce thermoregulatory strain. This study examined the hypothesis that intermittent, regional MCC (IRC) would abate this response and improve heat loss when compared with constant MCC (CC) during exercise heat stress. In addition, the relative effectiveness of four different IRC regimens was compared. Five heat-acclimated men attempted six experimental trials of treadmill walking ( approximately 225 W… CONTINUE READING
