This observational study was designed to determine whether football players with a history of heat cramps have elevated fluid and sodium losses during training. During a "two-a-day" training camp, five Division I collegiate football players (20.2 +/- 1.6 y, 113 +/- 20 kg) with history of heat cramps (C) were matched (weight, age, race and position) with a cohort of teammates (19.6 +/- 0.6 y, 110 +/- 20 kg) who had never cramped (NC). Change in body weight (adjusted by fluid intake) determined… Expand
