Re: Moving from cold and dry to hot and humid

I don't know if this will help, but...

When I deployed to Afghanistan, I went from a very cold/moderately humid land (Petawawa, Ontario in winter...minus 10-20 Celsius) to a very hot/dry land (Afghanistan...plus 40 Celsius). Acclimation took about 3 weeks...it felt like there was no oxygen in the air. Until then, workouts and pretty much everything was difficult. I concentrated on routine, hydration and sleep maximization, and everything eventually came around.

Good luck.
