Major sporting events take place in the summer months and often in hot ambient conditions. The thermal stress associated with exercising in the heat often decreases performance. However, athletes can specifically prepare to compete in the heat by utilising a number of strategies to optimise performance.

Watch the series of videos relating to the influence of exercise in the heat on cardiovascular and neuromuscular function, as well the role of hydration in regulating performance. Also, learn how heat acclimation and cooling strategies can help enhance performance in the heat.
