Aragón Vargas, Luis Fernando
MetadataShow full item record
Both laboratory and field tests for measuring sweat rate in athletes have been performed more and more often this past decade. This workshop gave the attendants a hands-on opportunity to test two volunteers who exercised on stationary bikes at a moderate intensity for 60 minutes. Some of the common mistakes when performing this type of tests were discussed and illustrated, and the final results calculated and discussed. This paper presents some theoretical background, describes the recommended standard protocol and recommended equipment, and discusses the practicality of sweat rate tests.
