Exercising in the Heat | Emma Carney
Exercising in the Heat | Emma Carney

Summer is here in Australia, and as the driest continent on earth, it is going to get hot wherever you are. There is no doubt that exercising in the heat does make things a little more difficult as our bodies adjust to increased temperature.

Heat impacts us all at a physiological level through various means, including dehydration, increased heart rate and reduced blood flow (and therefore oxygen) to the muscles used for exercising. These adverse effects come in to play, due to the body’s cooling system – sweat. As we sweat more in the heat – to cool ourselves – we of course experience fluid loss. This leads to dehydration which varies according to the amount we sweat. Dehydration has quite noticeable effects on performance through increased body temperature and heart rate. To compound things, increased dehydration also leady to reductions in blood volumes – which leads to less blood to your heart and therefore less oxygen-rich blood to your working muscles and increased tiredness.
