Here was a great question from an ISSA SnC assignment I did. Figured this would be the best place for it.

Describe the physiological adaptations that occur when an athletes trains for 2-weeks in the heat.

In the first week the body makes several adjustments that result in lower heart rate, core temperature , core temperature , and skin temperature when at rest and during submaximal exercise. What is also physiologically happening is increased peripheral conductance , increased plasma volume , increased sweating capacity , and a better distribution of sweat over the skin.
