One of the perennial questions about heat adaptation is how long it takes. Researchers have found that as few as two 2-hour runs are enough to stimulate significant increases in plasma volume, but full adaptation takes longer—and different adaptations take different amounts of time, as the following chart from the new review illustrates: A few adaptations take place right away, like a slight decrease in core temperature. Many of the big changes, such as plasma volume, seem to max out after about a week. The full benefits keep stretching out to about two weeks, at which point exercise capacity plateaus. Of course, this graph is just a guide: the precise changes will depend on the details of your acclimation protocol (how hot it is, how much you exercise, and so on). One interesting detail to point out. The plasma volume change, which researchers suspect is the most importan...
