Exercising in the heat? Drink something cold to aid endurance.

I practice hot yoga. Our teachers recommend that we do not bring in super cold water to sip on (or in my case chug) during class. They posit that digesting a very cold drink requires body energy -- energy that would better be used for the poses. According to a 2008 study, they are wrong.
