During exercise, humans produce heat that must be dissipated to mitigate fatal rises in body temperature. Our focus is on sweating, the most crucial heat loss mechanism during extreme heat stress, such as exercise in hot conditions. It remains unclear whether exercise training can independently enhance the sweating response during heat strain, providing a greater heat dissipation. With increasing ambient temperatures, it is imperative that we understand the limitations to the thermoregulatory system in order to develop safe environmental limits for work and athletic competition to reduce the risk of heat related morbidity and mortality.
