Maximising Performance in Hot Environments: A Problem-Based Learning Approach 1st Edition

by Christopher J. Tyler (Author)

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.
