Abstract
During acute cold water immersion in 10C the length of time for a 1C decrease in rectal temperature (Tre) directly related to the endurance fitness level as determined by the blood lactate response to submaximal exercise. Fitness level was not, however, related to the hormonal changes induced by the immersion. A wide variation in the response of metabolic rate and circulating blood hormone and substrate levels to the immersion was evident among subjects although all subjects decreased their Tre by 1C.
