In this themed supplement issue, Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital partners with the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports to address the topic of training and competing in the heat. Through both targeted reviews and original investigations, the issue presents the most up‐to‐date research relating to the mechanisms modulating performance in the heat, the strategies that can be utilized to attenuate the impairment in performance, and various methods to enhance recovery. The supplement also offers specific recommendations to athletes, coaches, and event organizers in a consensus statement, related to heat acclimatization, hydration strategies, and cooling techniques (Racinais et al., 2015).
