Roger Federer, a professional tennis player, spends time in his off-season training in the dessert of Dubai, where temperatures can be extremely high. What physiological adaptations does the body make in response to this training, and how do such adaptations enhance performance in cooler conditions?

  • I think this is off topic for this site, because you haven't said what the problem is that you're facing and what help you're looking for.. The FAQ says to ask "practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face". You'll get a better answer that way anyway. – user4644 Jan 22 '13 at 2:03
  • Thanks Kate. Maybe this is better suited to biology.stackexchange. I'm happy if a moderator will transfer. – Kenshin Jan 22 '13 at 2:19
  • Actually, i dont think this is off-topic, at least not as much as it would be in biology SE. To please Kate the question could be rephrased to something like: "Ive found some routines that suggest training in high temperatures. How would it affect my workouts and my performance in typical conditions ?" – K.L. Jan 22 '13 at 12:10

    Personally, I don't have a problem with this question - seems like an easy jump from Roger Federer to the OP wondering how these training conditions may help or hinder. – G__ Jan 22 '13 at 18:56

    I would suggest looking at this other question about training in the heat. If anything, I'd say it's a duplicate. – Matt Chan Jan 23 '13 at 3:47
