Post-exercise thermoregulatory control in humans has received limited attention. In the post-exercise period skin blood flow and sweating return to pre-exercise levels despite a persistent elevation in esophageal temperature, suggesting an alteration in thermoregulatory control. The esophageal temperature response post-exercise appears to be correlated to the marked cardiovascular changes that occur after dynamic exercise. Recent work has shown that non-thermoregulatory factors associated with hemodynamic changes and hydration status post-exercise may influence the regulation of core temperature during exercise recovery. This review will characterize the thermal response and describe our current understanding of the physiological influences on thermoregulatory control during recovery from dynamic exercise.
