Abstract : Eleven subjects were used to determine the effects of racquetball on core temperature, skin temperature, sweat production, and weight loss. The results indicated that an hour of racquetball play produced a significant increase in core temperature, a significant decrease in skin temperature, a high level of sweating and a weight loss. It was concluded that the exercise regimen of racquetball can act as a good heat stress acclimator by virtue of finding that it produced a significantly high level of hyperthermia. (Author)
