Lab based studies have demonstrated that adding a small quantity of protein to a typical CHO-electrolyte beverage is beneficial, e.g. improved recovery from strenuous exercise (St. Laurent et al., 2006) and increased thermoregulatory capacity (Goto et al., 2007). However, no study has investigated whether this will attenuate the rise in core temperature (Tc) during strenuous exercise in the heat and, importantly, whether these physiological changes can affect real-life sporting performance.
