Does exercising in the heat burn more calories?

Does exercising in the heat burn more calories? The short answer is yes; When you exercise and the weather is hot, your cardiovascular system has to work overtime to cool the body and maintain an even body temperature.

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