Physiological and metabolic output responses to facial cooling during a graded maximal exercise and a prolonged submaximal exercise lasting 30 min at 65% VO2 max were investigated in five male subjects. Pedalling on a cycle ergometer was performed both with and without facial cooling (10 degrees C, 4.6 M.S-1). Facial cooling at the end of greated maximal exercise apparently had no effect on plasma lactate (LA), maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 max), maximal heart rate (HR max), rectal temperature (Tre), work load, lactate threshold (LT), ventilatory threshold (VT) and onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA). However, the response to facial cooling after prolonged submaximal exercise is significantly different for heart rate and work load. The results suggest that facial wind stimulation during maximal exercise does not produce a stress high enough to alter the metabolic and physiological responses.
