Abstract

"Background: Laboratory studies have shown during prolonged exercise that 2-3% dehydration can lead to greater increases of body temperature and cardiovascular work, altered metabolic function, and impaired exercise performance, compared to when no fluid deficit occurs. However, previous studies were conducted in relatively windless environments (i.e. wind speeds
