Thermotolerance, to which heat shock protein-72 (Hsp72) contributes, is an acquired state achieved following heat acclimation (HA), eliciting cellular adaption and protection against thermal stress. Optimal HA methods achieving the greatest heat shock response (HSR) are equivocal; therefore, investigation of methods provoking the greatest sustained HSR is required to optimize cellular adaptation. Twenty-four males performed short-term HA (STHA; five sessions) and long-term HA (LTHA; STHA plus… CONTINUE READING
