PURPOSE: This study examined the influence of: i) fluid intake on heat acclimation and ii) the subsequent effects on exercise performance following acute hypohydration.
METHODS: Participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups, either able to consume water
RESULTS: No meaningful differences in physiological or performance variables were observed between HANW and HAW at any time-point. Using pooled data, mean sprint speed was significantly (P
CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest passive heat acclimation protocols may be effective at improving short duration repeat-effort performance following acute hypohydration.
