The increased cardiac dimensions in senior athletes are probably in relation to their larger body surface area and lean body mass, but also to the longer duration of intensive athletic conditioning. d) Finally, a genetic control is suggested by studies evaluating aerobic per-formance and cardiac dimensions in series of twins [39 ,40]. Inherited factors may have a role in governing cardiac dimensions in athletes, either by regulat-ing cardiac morphologic adaptations to training, or through a predisposition to sustain a more intensive athletic conditioning and hemodynamic overload.

Thus, in thermal stress the heat dissipation mechanism of vasodilatation and sweating in the lower body is lost. Furthermore, the interruption of the spinothalamic tract, which conveys information from cutaneous thermoreceptors, reduces the ability to maintain thermal homeostasis. This fact is reflected in the shiver paradox: when the lower part of the body is refrigerated the diencephalic centre, which perceives this manoeuvre because the blood is cool, reacts by shivering. But the subject who is not aware of the cold, due to the interruption of the spinothalamic lateral tract, is surprised by the shivering which is subjectively felt as a purposeless activity.
