Heat Fatigue May Not Be Real

A study was done with cyclists, I won't go into the not-so-comfortable details, to determine if heat fatigue is all in our heads. The cyclists performed better at a cooler temperature. When they were deceived into thinking it was cooler then it actually was, they performed much better then the cooler temperature. So, what is the moral of the story?? Lie to yourself about the temperature, and you will be fine.
