In today’s episode, we speak with Dr. Julien Périard to answer all of your questions regarding exercising in the heat. Tune in to learn more about how training in the heat can affect the gut, how your body thermoregulates itself, and how you can best prepare for a race in the heat.
Professor Julien Périard is Deputy Director of the University of Canberra Research Institute for Sport and Exercise (UCRISE), where he leads the Environmental Physiology Research Laboratory. He is also the former Head of Research Operations for the Athlete Health and Performance Research Centre at Aspetar (Qatar). His scientific expertise lies in the area of environmental physiology (i.e. heat and altitude) where he uses an integrative research approach to examine the physiological mechanisms that mediate health and performance. Over the last decade Julien has studied the pathways via which fatigue develops during prolonged exercise in the heat, along with strategies to mitigate its influence (heat acclimation and hydration). This research continues, along with a focus on developing extreme heat policies for safely conducting physical activity in hot environmental conditions.
