Five prepubertal females and five college women, matched for aerobic power, walked on a treadmill at approximately 30% VO2 max for two 50-min periods in three environments: 1) 28 degrees C, 45% rh, 2) 35 degrees C, 65% rh, and 3) 48 degrees C, 10% rh. In the mild heat (28 degrees C) both groups were able to work 100 min with no discomfort. At 35 and 48 degrees C tolerance time for the prepubertal subjects averaged 84.4 and 37.0 min, respectively; for adults, 100 and 75.0 min. At all… CONTINUE READING
