We were very interested to read the recent article by Tokizawa et al1 that investigated the effect of partial sleep restriction (PSR) and a daytime nap on thermal strain during exercise heat stress. Tokizawa et al confirm our previous findings2 that disrupted sleep does not affect thermal strain during exercise-heat-stress in the morning but extend our findings by showing that PSR increases heat strain during moderate exercise-heat-stress in the afternoon …
