conducted in a hot or comfortable environment, the partitioning of energy expenditure was different, that is, less aerobic expenditure and greater anaerobic expenditure in the hot environment (Table 6-9). The results were subsequently confirmed by Dimri et al. (1980). The hypothesized explanation for this partitioning was the diversion of a significant amount of blood from the muscles to the skin for thermoregulation in hot environments. Although
