Maximising Performance in Hot Environments : A Problem-Based Learning Approach, Paperback / softback Book

Maximising Performance in Hot Environments : A Problem-Based Learning Approach Paperback / softback


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.
