Living in the heat

I know the topic of heat acclimatisation has been discussed a lot through training in hot conditions, but is there any advantage to just living in hot conditions outside of training?

I live in Australia and have some races coming up where it will likely be pretty hot. Just wondering if there’s any advantage to leaving the air conditioner off when I’m at home.

I liv in Qatar, in Middle East and temperature can go up to 38C (feels like 44-48) while cycling during the hot summer mornings. Your heart rate is constantly over 170 :slight_smile:

But when I go back to home country and do hard climbings or hard riding, I see that my heart rate hardly reaches to those figures.

I think it works for me :slight_smile:

Oh gosh. I’m so not looking forward to these new 40C summers here in the Netherlands :hot_face:
