Abstract

The article discusses the risk implication of high-intensity bench press exercise and the benefits of personal cooling. It elaborates the methods in personal cooling which induce an ergogenic effect during short-term exercise like heat extraction from the palm. It reports the scientific findings to the implication of palm cooling during rest intervals between weight training sets which increases total repetitions and exercise volume that resulted to reverse temporarily the fatigue mechanism during intense sets of exercise
