Pro-cyclist Victor Campenaerts explains Heat Training for Performance
You can read all of the research papers and listen to the academic lectures, but sometimes it is worthwhile taking a more practical approach and seeing how the most successful pros put the theory into practice.
One of the most compelling WorldTour riders is the Belgium pro from Qhubeka NextHash who has included Heat Training as an important part of his training program.
Professor Victor recently published a video to youtube which is a great introduction into the fundamentals and benefits of heat training for performance sports. Well worth watching as it is straight forward and Victor has the results to back it up.
