Tell you what. Bring back the heat, we’ll do the exercise. Even without the paracetemol.
Paracetamol has a significant effect on exercise performance and the body’s ability to cope with the thermal challenge of exercise in the heat, shows a study published in Experimental Physiology.
The research team have previously shown that paracetamol can improve endurance performance through a reduction in exercise-induced pain. This study suggests, for the first time, that paracetamol can also improve the length of time someone can exercise for in hot conditions. The data suggests that this is achieved by reducing the body’s temperature
