Heat Stress & Sports

Home > News & Health Advice

With the warmer summer months coming heat stress becomes an issue that all athletes exercising should be aware of. Heat stress occurs when sweat can’t evaporate fast enough to keep the body sufficiently cool. Many of the symptoms occur as a result of excessive loss of body salts and water.

At rest and in comfortable temperatures, a person sweats about two litres of fluid every 24 hours. During hot weather (35°C), this fluid loss can leap to around 10 litres over the same time period. Exercising in hot weather accelerates fluid loss even more.
