Your style statement while cycling could give you a heart attack. If this nugget of information is not reason enough to send you into cardiac shock, read on! Researchers from the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain, have warned older cyclists to avoid tight compression clothing as it can cause them to overheat and put pressure on their heart. Researchers tested 12 people of different ages at different temperatures and found that when exercising at 20o C, young people gained no temperature-controlling benefit from tight clothing. In the case of trained cyclists with an average age of 66, the clothing actually increased body temperature and, in some cases, even heart rate. This is significant because the ability to regulate temperature declines with age.
