There is no consensus regarding the potential effect of body fatness on subjective responses to cold at rest [1,2]. Most studies have examined overall sensation and comfort with no attention to regional values or the influence of exercise on thermal perception. The present study aimed at exploring overall and regional perceptual responses of males, varying in body fat content (¿) in association with their physiological responses, specifically regional skin temperatures (Tsk).
