    Default Athletes Training in the heat

    Here was a great question from an ISSA SnC assignment I did. Figured this would be the best place for it.

    Describe the physiological adaptations that occur when an athletes trains for 2-weeks in the heat.

    In the first week the body makes several adjustments that result in lower heart rate, core temperature , core temperature , and skin temperature when at rest and during submaximal exercise. What is also physiologically happening is increased peripheral conductance , increased plasma volume , increased sweating capacity , and a better distribution of sweat over the skin.

    Very cool information. I remember reading in a book about doing things in the desert that cardio before you get out there really helps you out.

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense cause the body can adjust to some seriously extreme conditions.
