Workout, cold shower, steam, cold shower. (short showers Smile )

Unbelievable in the winter. Sometimes if I wake up early, I'll go down just for the executive workout...steam shower work.

Steam and Sauna or similar, in that, they are both form of heat therapy, where it increase the blood circulation at skin level, rich which help to move toxin. I have heard Ronda Patrick say it works on the same principle, but she said there is no research on steam. I believe it to be the same.

Check out the link below:

http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/sauna...-1286.html

According to Columbia University, neither saunas nor steam baths exert a clear advantage in terms of health benefits. Certain health conditions are not compatible with either heat room. If you have any sort of compromised breathing condition, like asthma, steam rooms can irritate your condition. Heart and blood conditions, such as hypertension, low blood pressure and heart disease, are generally not compatible with high levels of either dry or moist heat. Women who are pregnant, epileptics and people under the influence of any mood-altering drug or medication should also avoid saunas and steam rooms. If you are in good health, limit your time in either a sauna or steam room to 15 minutes for your first several visits. Rehydrate with several glasses of water after a treatment to avoid dangerous dehydration.

There isn't a much better way to end a hangover than sitting in the steam room for 20 minutes while drinking a half gallon of water.

RE: Sauna increase growth hormones
Bump. It's been a while since I've had access to a sauna/steam room. I moved last winter to another part of town and my new gym doesn't have either. I was googling the other day and found out Amazon sells portable, personal sauna and steam for 100-200 dollars. They are PVC frames with a cover and heat source. The steam version has a portable steamer that you throw hot water into. The dry sauna has a heater that plugs into the wall. Both hotbox the small space you're sitting in. They have a hole for your head and arms but reviewers said you could go all the way in and use armholes to control the temperature.

I read reviews on a few different brands and most are positive. I prefer steam over dry heat. I don't have a ton of extra space in my apartment, but there is room in the loft I rarely use. They also look pretty easy to break down and store in a closet if you have guests over.

Has anyone used or owned one of these? Part of me thinks it's going to be a piece of shit from China that lasts 2 months at best. But the one in the first picture is only $120 including shipping. I'd spend a lot more changing gyms as mine is around the corner, open 24 hours, has more than I need for equipment, and only costs $10 a month. There are a few gyms with steam rooms that aren't too far, but have that safe space feel and are in the $30-$60 range.

I'm mostly thinking aloud here, but it seems like even if the Amazon one is underwhelming, I'd rather lose $120 outright than whatever fuckery would occur with cancelling, changing gyms, cancelling again to go back to my original gym, etc. They all say there are no cancellation fees but they always have random charges that go with leaving and signing up.

RE: Sauna increase growth hormones
With steam saunas you have to be sure the spouts are clean. I stopped going to my gym's steam sauna for that reason.

For infrared you have to be sure EMFs are low. I made my own by snooping around on the internet. Ben Greenfield among others have stated saunas work your body similar to a light cardio workout.

RE: Sauna increase growth hormones
What do you mean by spouts? Wouldn't the steam kill anything anyway?

Those portable ones might be okay, never used them, i guess you would have to sit cross legged on the floor. The steam one might be annoying to clean after each use. I would maybe try to retrofit a shower with the steam maker from it.

Its hard to find a dry sauna in the states in a gym that actually gets hot enough.
Now that its getting cold I might try hitting up a korean sauna in nyc.

Update on Sauna experience

Been doing a dry Sauna at the gym for 1 year now.

About twice a week

Method:

Sit in dry sauna at 120 degrees fahrenheit for 15 mins, Than rinse off with cold water for two minutes. Why? to close the skin pores and wash off the sweat. I recommend using a soap to wash off all any dirt or sweaty odors from the sweating.

This is best done in the morning, because the Sauna experience will boost testosterone and hormones. Thus you will feel like getting some work done at the office. You will fee more energetic and ready to get work done.

RE: Sauna increase growth hormones
Coincidently, I went to the sauna almost everyday last month except Sundays and a few Saturdays that I missed.

I train full body 5-6 days a week and would hit the sauna at the end of my session. I'd stay in there 15-20 minutes usually, but a few times were ~half an hour.

Here's what I noticed:

Pros
- Skin very 'bright' and clear
- Tons of energy and confidence
- Slept like a baby
- I like to sleep ~9 hours each day, but would naturally sleep for only 7 and feel very fresh
- Really horny, more than usual
- Sauna is a nice place to do some light stretching/massaging

Cons
- A couple calluses on my hands split I think due to dryness. Using some cheap moisturizer fixed this. + I filed down the worst calluses.
- Sauna can be rough on your hair. Making sure my hair was wet before going in fixed this.

Anyway, these are just my anecdotes. If you want a more science based approach, check out Rhonda Patrick's videos about the topic. Off the top of my head, some benefits are:

-Activation of heat shock proteins
-Release of dynorphin, which makes you feel uncomfortable in the sauna, but feel better afterwards by making you more receptive to endorphins
-Up to 40% reduction in all-cause mortality
-Good for your heart because blood vessels dilate and bloodflow is increased a lot without the heart needing to work as hard or something.

Sauna is great to clean pores. Better than any mask.
If you want that perfect shave, do it in the sauna.
Good to transpire and loose body liquid. Your abs “pump” (good for pics?).

RE: Sauna increase growth hormones
I wouldn't be surprised if whatever HGH boost you supposedly got from sauna is on a par with the Test boost you might get from regularly consuming almonds.

Only way to really increase HGH in adulthood is to inject it.

But I'll echo that sauna and ice bath several times per week is a godsend. The ice bath in particular is useful for reducing soreness, improving sleep, regulating breathing, and relaxing into discomfort. If you do combat sports and you several times per week you'll notice a 10-20% decrease in soreness, which is a lot.

RE: Sauna increase growth hormones
I'm blessed right now with regular sauna access. I love it. Even on my rest days from the gym I'll just chill in the sauna for a bit. The only slight problem is that they don't have it that hot, but I'll take what I can get for now.
