Beschrijving Maximising Performance in Hot Environments

Ensuring high levels of performance and safety in hot climates is a key consideration for sport scientists and coaches. Maximising Performance in Hot Environments is the first book with a project-based approach to focus solely on exercise in this common climactic condition, providing students and coaches with a clear and concise introduction to working with athletes in the heat. Rigorous in its physiological underpinnings, the book adopts a problem-based learning approach, encouraging students to engage with the science and apply it to practical, real-world scenarios.


Posing questions such as "how should athletes be monitored in high temperatures", "what are the ideal conditions for setting a world record in a 10,000m race", and "what special considerations should be made when working with masters athletes", the book covers all key topics, including:




  • The basics of human thermoregulation



  • The effect of high temperatures on performance



  • Heat acclimation and acclimatisation



  • Cooling



  • Hydration



  • Preventing heat-related illness and injury


Offering pedagogical features throughout to further enhance student learning, this is a truly innovative and unique resource. It is crucial reading for any student taking classes in environmental physiology, important applied reading for any exercise physiology students, and a vital companion for any sport scientist or coach working with athletes in high temperatures.
