OBJECTIVES The pre-competition warm-up mediates many temperature related physiological changes which generally lead to an improvement in performance. However, after ceasing exercise body temperature declines rapidly, which reduces some of the benefits of the initial warm-up. We examined the effects of a passive heat maintenance strategy on post-warm-up core temperature (Tcore) and performance in professional rugby league players. DESIGN Twenty professional rugby league players completed this… CONTINUE READING
