Eight Japanese men and women participated in this study. They were randomly exposed to two environments: hot-dry; HD (Ta = 40 degrees C, rh 30%, wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) = 32 degrees C) and hot-wet; HW (Ta = 31 degrees C, rh = 80%, WBGT = 32 degrees C) for 110 min. During the exposure, they rested on a bicycle ergometer for 20 min during rest and 30 min during recovery, then they pedaled it with an intensity of 40% VO2 max for 60 min. Tre, Tsk, and HR were recorded every minute. Total… CONTINUE READING
