The purpose of the present study was to compare the heat strain while wearing nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) protective clothing following a hot-wet (HW) or hot-dry (HD) heat acclimation protocol. Twenty-two males were assigned to groups HW (n = 7), HD (n = 8), or control (C, n = 7). Subjects were evaluated during continuous treadmill walking while wearing lightweight combat clothing and during intermittent exercise while wearing the NBC protective clothing. While wearing Combat… CONTINUE READING
