    Sauna alternatives

    I was using sauna's in public gyms until restrictions came down.

    Anyone out there have alternatives for heat therapy?

    trying to activate the heat shock proteins?

    No hot bath doesn’t equal sauna, but I’ve almost passed out in a hot bath. Never in a sauna.

    you could alternate hot and cold in the shower. 30 seconds of hot followed by 60 seconds of cold. Ten rounds. Either to wake you up or fall asleep. Or after workout.

    Check out Dr Rhonda Patrick for more info. She is the sauna guru and heat shock protein enthusiast

    If the sauna is closed I usually find gay men at the greyhound station.

    Mainly to reduce inflammation, recovery time, and make the joints run smoother. Rhonda is great and her websites a gold mine.. I'll have to attempt another dig at it.

    Dunno how much ye have to spend, but one of my bosses has a home infrared sauna and he loves it.

    Found this one on Amazon. If I had the coin, I'd look into one.

    I quit doing those. I had an over sized trash can on our back patio filled with water a couple of winters ago. It was freezing outside and even colder in the water. I had intended to stay in it for five minutes, but when I went to get out I realized it had frozen around the top and I kept falling back in. My only thought was holy shit I can’t die this.

    Never again
