Small increases can have dramatic effects on performance and safety. To stop this rise in temperature, your muscles have fail-safe mechanisms that activate when temperatures get too high. This impedes the muscle’s ability to work at high levels, leading to fatigue.
THIS IS WHY YOUR ATHLETES FATIGUE OVER TIME!
Fortunately, the palms of our hands are highly effective radiators to transfer cool blood to our heart. The heart prioritizes sending this cool blood to the overheated muscles and cool blood flows to those muscles quickly. As the blood cools the muscles, your capacity to work improves.
Circulating properly cooled water around the ideal area on the palms will help regulate internal temperatures and enhance performance and provide safety.
