Here, Fozzy describes his impressions regarding exercise and sports in extremely hot conditions. He concludes by inviting you to a “heat excursion”: Who wants to explore what happens in great heat?
Surely everybody still remembers the Athletics World Cup in Doha where collapsing marathon runners just after midnight were just the tip of the “heatberg”.
At the same time, I was on the other side of the Persian Gulf, where it is even hotter: The desert Lut is the world’s hottest place, but this is a dry heat. Bandar Abbas by the coast and the island Qeshm opposite the coastline are just as hot but oppressively so.
Why would you go to such places and on vacation to boot? My reasoning is that you can learn a lot about moderate extremes if you study the most extreme circumstances. As an example: You can learn more about lightweight cars if you try to incorporate car elements into a bicycle instead of making a car lighter. So, what did I learn from this extreme heat that can be applied to the conditions likely to occur during the Olympic Games in Tokyo or the Soccer World Championships in Qatar…
So much for my impressions. I know: A vacation is not a properly planned excursion. Plus, I was more than a month too late, the hottest time is in August, not September. So, here is my plan:
I want go to Iran in the middle of August 2021, three days each in the desert Lut and on the island Qeshm. Who wants to come? In the desert Lut, I already organized a driver as well as talks with participants of the Ultra Marathon. We could sleep in an Eco-Lodge near Lut and would even have bicycles. On Qeshm, we could talk to soccer players and coaches, have lodging at the beach and I know helpful people.
Are there any crazies, athletes, coaches, medical professionals, scientists, who would like to participate in this experiment? Please contact me so that I know whether this is going to be big or more a private experience …
I also look forward to receiving any suggestion regarding handling extreme heat you might have! Please email me directly: efm@. innovationsmanufaktur.com<- Back to: News
