Default Sauna

Lyle,

I usually take my PWO drink and hit the sauna, reason mainly being that I have thought that the increased heart rate would bring the proteins faster/better to muscle. Pure own belief. With emphasis on belief.

FWIW the saunas we have here use temperatures in the 175-210F range.

Ignoring the muscle relaxation effect and body dehydration, is the research showing ANY benefits in going to the sauna after weight training or exercise?

Just did a quick search on pubmed, apparently they can help with insulin sensitivity and there was one showing increased endurance performance(whether that means anything for weights i dont know)

even if they dont do a whole lot.. they're awesome

Just wanna to bump this thread to get some opinions on Sauna, since I'm changing gym's, and one of the ones that I'm considering has Sauna and steam bath but it's also more expensive than the other.

So, has anybody researched all this supposed health benefits of sauna?

Researched it all: no
Stumbled on to some stuff: yes

Google Rhonda Patrick and Sauna. He has three or four podcasts and some articles on the subject.

I can't recall the exact numbers, but something like 25% decrease in all-cause mortality, 60% decrease in CVD death, etc. That's huge! Improved adaptations to resistance training. Nifty induction of heat shock proteins. I immediately wanted to dump my gym for one with a sauna.

yes, that's the stuff I heard about.

But I don't know if the claims are legit....

Just from a logic point of view I would have thought redirecting your water and electrolytes to the skins surface so you can sweat your ring out probably doesn't make much sense for muscle building/ recovery

I have no idea but

I have no reference to back my claims here, but generally speaking, it seems that moderate amount of stress of different kinds tend to be beneficial in all sorts of ways. each form of stress pushes the body to make adjustments. these adjustments act to relieve the stress.

moderate stress for too long a period, or too intense stress even for a short period, could lead to damage. but in between there seems of be a gap (either huge or tiny, depends on what we're talking about) in which stress will yield beneficial gains to health in an attempt to adapt to that stress.

that's how we get stronger in sports. I bet a lot of people here had the change to read about the advantages of fasting, and how the stress it creates could lead to beneficial adaptations.

I can only guess that sauna done correctly can be beneficial like any other form of stress. again, this is just me talking freely here, and I have nothing to back my words with except my own personal impression.

Hadn't heard of this potential benefit before:

Sweating in sauna might help keep brain healthy: Finnish study

Frequent sauna bathing may protect men against dementia, Finnish study suggests

vs.

No, a regular sauna probably doesn’t protect against dementia

When I hit the sauna at the gym 4-6 times a week, my skin gets very soft. Like my skin went back in time 10 years.
