Abstract:

This study determined the effects of hypohydration on aerobic performance in compensable evaporative cooling requirement Ereq equal less than maximal evaporative cooling Emax conditions of 10 deg C 7 deg C wet bulb globe temperature WBGT 20 deg C 16 deg C WBGT, 30 deg C 22 deg C WBGT, and 40 deg C 27 deg C WBGT ambient temperature Ta. Our hypothesis was that 4 hypohydration would impair aerobic performance to a greater extent with increasing heat stress.
