Performing an "aerobic" exercise of submaximal or maximum intensity in a constraining climatic environment (ie, high heat) is usually accompanied by a decrease in locomotor performance [1]. Some of the world's biggest sporting events take place regularly in hot and / or humid environments like the 1996 Olympic Games (Atlanta), 2008 (Beijing) or 2016 (Rio), or the 2014 FIFA World Cups (Brazil). ) and 2022 (Qatar). With a view to protecting the health of elite athletes, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) [2] and the International Amateur Football Federation (FIFA) [3] have recently organized expert meetings on the theme of risk Heat-related medical conditions induce significant changes in thermoregulation, including sustained cutaneous blood flow rates that allow thermal exchanges to be adjusted to the environment. The purpose of this article is to recall some elements on evaporative thermolysis that will influence responses to training in hot and humid environments and to describe the beneficial effects of acclimation.
