The acclimatizing was conducted every other day for a total of eight sessions in the period leading up to the Olympics. According to Bamel, the scientific literature suggests that acclimatizing to heat can easily be achieved in that period of time. The chamber was set to around 94 degrees and 90 percent humidity while the 24 girls completed a series of exercises over 48 minutes (light lifting, bicycle, abs, etc.). The size of the tent limited any field hockey specific exercising (though archers did use the tent for practice). Heart rate, sweat rate and a series of other metrics were tracked throughout the sessions. A control session in more moderate climate was used as a baseline. With each session, the girls inched closer towards their original baseline suggesting the glorified tent did its job.
