Performance in the heat: Health complaints and heat stress prevention strategies as predictors

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial

Abstract

The importance of individualised preparation for athletic performance management in hot conditions is reinforced by Timpka and colleagues in the first of this month’s feature articles. They recommend that athletics athletes’ self-reported health needs are monitored during tapering and heat stress prevention strategies are individually tested before championships in hot conditions. In the second feature article, Bruder’s group, utilised a concept mapping approach to work with female football athletes to co-create a sport-specific anterior cruciate ligament injury risk reduction program. In the final feature article, Hutchinson’s team describe the differences in ratings of perceived exertion during wheelchair propulsion in untrained able-bodied participants and trained wheelchair rugby athletes.
