Precooling and percooling (cooling during exercise) both improve performance in the heat: a meta-analytical review.


BACKGROUND Exercise increases core body temperature (Tc), which is necessary to optimise physiological processes. However, excessive increase in Tc may impair performance and places participants at risk for the development of heat-related illnesses. Cooling is an effective strategy to attenuate the increase in Tc. This meta-analysis compares the effects of… (More)
