Abstract:

Phase 1 exposed 14 subjects to the neck in 3 water temperatures during both rest R and exercise E conditions for up to 3h whereas 8 subjects in Phase 2 were exposed to the knee KN, hip HI, and chest CH in water at 15 and 25 deg C during R and E. In Phase 1 the Body Fat was 9.5 for the low-fat L, N5, 14.8 for the moderate-fat A, N5, and 19.6 for the high- fat H, N4 subjects were immersed on four occasions two temperatures X two activities for durations up to 3h. During R at equivalent thermal strain rectal and esophageal temperatures declined similarly in all groups over 3h.
