The Influence of Heat Acclimation and Hypohydration on Post-Weight-Loss Exercise Performance

Oliver R. Barley, Dale W. Chapman, Georgios Mavropalias, and Chris R. Abbiss

) may impact competitive performance by impairing repeat-effort capacities, 7 combat sports–specific performance, 9 – 11 and muscular performance 8 , 12 – 13 following recovery periods of 3 to 5 hours and in some cases up to 24 hours. 7 Heat acclimation has been shown to mitigate the negative

Precooling With Crushed Ice: As Effective as Heat Acclimation at Improving Cycling Time-Trial Performance in the Heat

Matthew Zimmermann, Grant Landers, Karen Wallman, and Georgina Kent

dehydration. 2 , 3 Because of this, methods of improving endurance performance in the heat have been developed. Heat acclimation (artificial environment) or heat acclimatization (natural environment) occurs when an individual trains in hot and typically humid environmental conditions for ∼60–90 minutes each

Does Dehydration Affect the Adaptations of Plasma Volume, Heart Rate, Internal Body Temperature, and Sweat Rate During the Induction Phase of Heat Acclimation?

Yasuki Sekiguchi, Erica M. Filep, Courteney L. Benjamin, Douglas J. Casa, and Lindsay J. DiStefano

Clinical Scenario Exercise in the heat can lead to performance decrements and increase the risk of heat illness. 1 , 2 Heat acclimation refers to the systematic and gradual increase in exercise in a controlled, laboratory environment with hot environmental conditions and is an impactful strategy

Auditing the Representation of Females Versus Males in Heat Adaptation Research

Monica K. Kelly, Ella S. Smith, Harry A. Brown, William T. Jardine, Lilia Convit, Steven J. Bowe, Dominique Condo, Joshua H. Guy, Louise M. Burke, Julien D. Périard, Rhiannon M.J. Snipe, Rodney J. Snow, and Amelia J. Carr

.e., heat acclimation) or naturally (i.e., heat acclimatization) occurring hot environments, that induce physiological adaptations and subsequent improvements in exercise performance ( Périard et al., 2021 ). Anecdotally, most heat adaptation literature appears to be conducted in men, meaning that current heat

Differing Physiological Adaptations Induced by Dry and Humid Short-Term Heat Acclimation

Samuel T. Tebeck, Jonathan D. Buckley, Clint R. Bellenger, and Jamie Stanley

Short-term heat acclimation (STHA) involves repeated exposure to heat stress over the course of ∼7 days in an artificial (acclimation) or natural (acclimatization) environment. 1 STHA has received increasing interest for elite athletic preparation because it efficiently and effectively promotes

Optimizing Heat Acclimation for Endurance Athletes: High- Versus Low-Intensity Training

Cyril Schmit, Rob Duffield, Christophe Hausswirth, Jeanick Brisswalter, and Yann Le Meur

Heat acclimation (HA) has the capability to improve performance in the heat, potentially countering heat-induced performance decrements. 1 In general, HA is accomplished via regular exercise at submaximal intensities in environments of sufficient temperature. 2 , 3 In addition, due to the

Heat Acclimation by Postexercise Hot-Water Immersion: Reduction of Thermal Strain During Morning and Afternoon Exercise-Heat Stress After Morning Hot-Water Immersion

Michael J. Zurawlew, Jessica A. Mee, and Neil P. Walsh

Prior to exercise-heat stress, athletes and military personnel are advised to complete a period of heat acclimation to alleviate heat strain and improve exercise capacity in the heat. 1 The adaptive responses that improve exercise capacity in the heat include an earlier onset and an increase in

importance as typically those undertaking heat acclimation (HA) tend to be preparing for prolonged events with high sweat rates. In addition to hydration, HA is also an impactful strategy to mitigate negative effects of exercise in the heat ( Alhadad et al., 2019 ). HA refers to the process of multiple

Impairment of Cycling Capacity in the Heat in Well-Trained Endurance Athletes After High-Intensity Short-Term Heat Acclimation

Thomas Reeve, Ralph Gordon, Paul B. Laursen, Jason K.W. Lee, and Christopher J. Tyler

Exercise performance in the heat is often impaired due to the greater physiological strain experienced, 1 – 3 but heat acclimation/acclimatization (HA) can reduce this impairment by inducing a number of beneficial physiological (eg, reduction in cardiovascular strain, lower core body temperature

Heating Up to Keep Cool: Benefits and Persistence of a Practical Heat Acclimation Protocol in Elite Female Olympic Team-Sport Athletes

Stephen P. Fenemor, Matthew W. Driller, Nicholas D. Gill, Brad Anderson, Julia R. Casadio, Stacy T. Sims, and C. Martyn Beaven

Heat acclimation (HA) can elicit physiological adaptations such as lowered core body temperature ( T c ), reduced resting and exercising heart rate (HR), plasma volume expansion, and a higher exercise sweat rate. 1 These adaptations facilitate a reduction in perceptual stress and enhanced exercise
