I still have a bradycardia sinus arrhythmia and even after surgeries my resting was 120/70 and a 68-78 bpm pulse with my xxl 245# body. Never had heat problems, worked n construction to get through engineering school, still do as a Civil/Quality Engineer and worked on sites the whole time mainly outside. Now that I am riding again the BP and pulse are slowing to what I like. Never had any heat problems but my wife had BP of 106/60 range usually and a pulse of ~60. She has real problems with heat and passing out even with good hydration. I'll tell her about the white, loose clothing.
