This may be a dumb question but does anyone use tricks or devices to tell time in the steam room and sauna. I want to use either after my workout at the gym but I only have a set time before I need to go back to work…say 10 minutes. I go in and get paranoid that it’s already been 10 minutes and end up leaving after a couple of minutes.
Any advice, I would be extremely grateful.
What if you just brought like a cheap $10 watch with you?
Ask the gym to put a clock up that is visible through the window
My YMCA has a clock on the wall, but I also wear my Apple Watch.
You wear your Apple Watch in the steam room! And it still works?
That was my thought, but wanted to see if anyone had thoughts before I went down that road.
Many of the onsens I visited in Japan had hour glasses. Don’t have to worry about the steam with them. Here is one for $8.99 on Amazon.
Being an avid sauna fan for some years and use it 2-4 times weekly i have been reading up on some of the science Rhonda Patrick has a good report, i do however have some issues with it. In the report on page 7 it is stated that 2 one hour sessions at 80°c (176F) increases growth hormone by 16%
I do 20 minutes sessions at 85°c (185F) once and a cooldown then perhaps add 10 minutes after a 10-20 minute break. The final minutes of the 20 min session are hard i have pushed to 25 minutes but then my heart starts racing and i feel like my body cannot compensate for the heat any longer, weighing myself has shown that a full session 20 min sauna 10-15 rest and 10 minutes again leaves me 2.kg lighter which is water lost through sweat as i do not hydrate while in the sauna or resting, do that afterwards.
Either the 60 minute session experiment was done in a time were ethics in science were different or its BS, atleast the mortality rate for the experiment is not shown.
