Title   Effects of heat acclimation on sweating during graded exercise until

The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that the sweating 
during graded exercise until exhaustion in a temperate environment would be 
greater after heat acclimation. Six healthy young males performed an 
exercise-heat stress acclimation protocol during 9 days. Before (PRE) and after 
(POS) the acclimation protocol they performed a graded exercise until 
exhaustion and the sweat loss during exercise increased after acclimation (3.94 
1.10, PRE, and 4.86  1.70gm(-2)min(-1), POS; p < 0.05). The results showed 
that daily prolonged exposures to exercise-heat stress increased sweating 
during a graded and short duration exercise in a temperate environment.
