Data for: The impact of heat acclimation on physiological response to exercise and performance at hot and temperate conditions



Dataset consisting of heart rate, sweat rate, skin temperature, core temperature during a 15 minute time trial in temperate and hot conditions before and after heat acclimation.

The aim of this study is to analyse the effectiveness of a 3-week intermittent exercise heat acclimation intervention on performance and physiological response during exercise at both temperate and hot environmental conditions. 8 physically active males (age: 24 ± 4 years, height: 183 ± 6cm, body mass: 91 ± 17kg, body fat %: 17.6 ± 9.0%) were recruited. A 15-minute cycling time trial in hot (35°C, 30% RH) and temperate (~13°C, ~30% RH) as well as the Yo-Yo IRL1 in temperate conditions were performed.
