It has been suggested that exercise performance in the heat is limited by the degree of hyperthermia, which, in some circumstances, compromises cardiovascular function and/or the central nervous system. However, this review presents evidence that a temperature-induced dysfunction to skeletal muscle contraction may contribute to a reduction in performance during exercise in the heat.
