The effects of a cooling vest on neuromuscular, muscle, and cognitive function

This research is examining how wearing a cooling vest influences exercise performance in young adults. Typically, changes in body temperature may hinder exercise performance. This study will compare how a cooling vest may alter muscle function, exercise performance, and cognitive performance. Participants will complete 4 total visits with a minimum of 48 hours between visits (1 orientation visit, 1 baseline visit, and 2 exercise visits). The goal of this study is to provide more insight into how cooling vests can be used during short duration exercise.
