Core temperature afterdrop following cold water immersion has previously been shown to be greater during treadmill exercise than shivering (J. Appl. Physiol. 1987; 63:2375-9). To test the hypothesis that this results from increased transfer of heat from the core to exercising muscles, we quantified the changes in leg temperature and heat content during cooling and exercise/shivering protocols. Upper and lower leg muscle temperatures were measured at multiple depths in five thin healthy male… CONTINUE READING
