Abstract:
The rise in body temperature following the completion of preliminary "warm-up" protocols, may have detrimental effects on the performance of endurance based events under environmental temperatures of 18-24°C. The aim of this thesis was to determine the influence of pre-warming on different modes of prolonged exercise under ambient temperatures of 20°C. Two pre-warming protocols were devised which would promote the desired elevation in body temperature prior to exercise. These protocols were then subsequently used to determine the influence of pre-exercise elevations in body temperature on the metabolic and thermoregulatory responses to prolonged submaximal, intermittent and soccer-specific intermittent exercise performance under ambient temperatures of 20°C.
