Hi Dr. Patrick,
Curious if the hormetic benefits of dry sauna use can be replicated via intense cardio/plyometrics while wearing layers in an otherwise room temperature environment? And given that evidence indicates that benefits from heat stress are to some degree dose dependent, would total sweat (as a percentage of bodyweight) be a reasonable metric to measure the effectiveness of a workout?
I ask b/c I’ve been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a gi (thick cotton kimono) for some time now. Though my gym hovers around 70 degree, by the end of a two hour session I certainly feel like I’ve replicated a sauna session.
