Heat acclimation for endurance running 6

Noted differences between the heat-acclimated group (on the left) and the control group (on the right). With the heat-acclimated group improving across the board (VO2max test, lactate threshold improvement, maximal cardiac output, and time-trial performance) from their pre-acclimation testing (8). Should be noted this research used endurance-trained cyclists. RH = relative humidity.
