Influence Of Environmental Temperature On Exercise-Induced Inspiratory Muscle Fatigue

“If blood is diverted away from the inspiratory muscles to the skin during exercise in the heat, exercise-induced inspiratory muscle fatigue might be exacerbated. This study hypothesised that prolonged heavy endurance exercise in the heat would impair exercise performance and exacerbate inspiratory muscle fatigue compared to exercise in a thermo-neutral environment.


“This study concluded that heavy sustained exercise in the heat impaired subsequent time-trial performance but did not exacerbate inspiratory muscle fatigue in endurance-trained subjects.”
