Train Hotter To Race Faster

From Discovery News, a study suggests that you'll race faster in cool weather if you add heat to your training sessions.

Successful triathletes know that you'd better train in hot weather if you plan to race in hot weather. Surprisingly though, those training in the heat - referred to as heat-acclimated - also performed between 4 and 8 percent better in cool conditions, according to results published in the Journal Of Applied Physiology.

An 8 percent improvement in speed, distance and power? Let's get warm!
