Abstract The purpose of this study was to examine and describe the neuromuscular changes associated with fatigue using a self-paced cycling protocol of 60-min duration, under warm, humid conditions. Eleven subjects [mean (SE) age 21.8 (0.8) years; height 174.9 (3.0) cm; body mass 74.8 (2.7) kg; maximum oxygen consumption 50.3 (1.8) ml · kg · min−1] performed one 60-min self-paced cycling time trial punctuated with six 1-min “all out” sprints at 10-min intervals, while 4 subjects repeated the… 
Neuromuscular responses to hydration in moderate to warm ambient conditions during self-paced high-intensity exercise
TLDR
The results suggest that the integrity of the neuromuscular system is adjusted according to hydration status and ambient temperatures during intense self-paced cycling.
Neuromuscular responses to hydration and exercise heat stress
TLDR
The results suggest that the integrity of the neuromuscular system is adjusted according to hydration status and ambient temperatures during intense self-paced cycling.
Neuromuscular Activity during Cycling Performance in Hot/Dry and Hot/Humid Conditions
To determine the relationships between limiting factors and neuromuscular activity during a self-paced 20-km cycling time trial and evaluate the effect of environmental conditions on fatigue indices.
Neuromuscular fatigue is greater following highly variable versus constant intensity endurance cycling
TLDR
Cycling at a varying power output in comparison to constant power resulted in additional muscular fatigue that may be explained by greater anaerobic contribution and muscle solicitation during the highly variable power output protocol.
Time course of neuromuscular changes during running in well-trained subjects.
TLDR
A reduction in knee extensor MVC only occurs during the final 5 km of a 20-km self-paced run, and impaired voluntary activation and neural drive but not contractile processes are responsible for this decreased strength.
Effects of pre-cooling procedures on intermittent-sprint exercise performance in warm conditions
TLDR
The ergogenic benefits of effective pre-cooling procedures in warm conditions for team-sports may be predominantly evident during sub-maximal bouts of exercise.
Effect of recovery interventions on cycling performance and pacing strategy in the heat.
TLDR
The pacing strategy during subsequent cycling performance in the heat is influenced by the application of different postexercise recovery interventions, likely due to decreased thermal strain.
Changes of whole-body power, muscle function, and jump performance with prolonged cycling to exhaustion.
TLDR
PPO and drop-jump decrements were linearly correlated and are appropriate measures of maximal performance, with the time to exhaustion related to the rate of rise of RPE.
