Does exercise in the heat burn more calories?

Does exercise in the heat burn more calories? The short answer is yes; When you’re training and it’s hot, your cardiovascular system has to rush to maximum speed to cool the body and maintain a constant body temperature.

If you were to do the same exercise in a temperate climate and a hot climate, the additional “cooling” efforts of your body in the warmer environment would likely result in a higher energy expenditure.
