The baths were hot (104°F) for 10 subjects, and neutral (93°F) for the other seven. Before and after this six-day protocol, the researchers took a bunch of performance and physiological measurements. The main result? The hot baths were effective in producing heat acclimation: the subjects in that group had lower resting temperatures, and their core temperatures after exercising in both cool and hot conditions stayed lower. There was some evidence of an increase in plasma volume of about 3 percent after a few days, though this measurement wasn’t very accurate. In terms of performance, the hot-bath group ran 4.9 percent faster in a 5K time trial at 91 degrees), but didn’t get significantly fas...
