Question about heat management in the pain cave…
Currently living in AZ and it’s starting to get hot outside. In the winter, I open the windows and have 3 fans rolling. The fans are placed as follows: ceiling fan overhead, Vornado on the face, and oscillating fan rolling back and forth over the body. Two years ago had an incident where I almost had a heat stroke and have been running hot during workouts ever since.
My pain cave is small. 10 foot x 12 foot room. I blast our AC but the vents in the room are very crappy (aka its always about 5 degrees warmer in that room naturally). I have found that I have failed workouts because I overheat rather than legs giving out. I have been checked out by my doc and cleared to workout hard.
Anyone have some suggestions about the best things to do to cool down the room? I have been looking at portable AC units or a portable swamp cooler. I am not sure we are going to be in the house long-term so thinking a mini-split is too expensive for a potentially short-term house.
