Fit Men Needed for Heated Exercise and Nutrition Study
Rapid Heat Acclimation & Subsequent Performance (RHASP): Influence of a High-Carbohydrate Diet During Short-Term Heat Acclimation
The University at Buffalo (UB) Center for Research and Education in Special Environments (CRESE) lab is looking for fit men for an exercise and nutrition study. The goal of this study is to see if a high carbohydrate diet affects fatigue and overall performance during a 6-day exercise heat acclimation protocol.
Eligible participants will attend 13 study visits on the UB South Campus (at Main Street and Bailey Avenue). During the exercise visits, they will walk, run, row, or cycle in a heated room for 60 to 90 minutes. They will have their metabolic rate tested and be coached to follow a modified carbohydrate diet for up to 15 days. Participants can earn up to $450 for attending all study visits.
Past studies of short-term heat acclimation (STHA) have reported impaired performance in the heat following acclimation, however to date there are no published studies of STHA have controlled nutritional intake despite the notable effects of exercise + heat stress on increasing glycogen oxidation and thus accumulating fatigue. This study aims to quantify the influence of consum

Healthy males between 18-40 years old
Typically exercise most days of the week
