Okay, would you guys rather take a cold plunge every morning for a week or at the end of every night you ended off with a scorching hot sauna? Preferably right after a workout. Which one would you choose? Personally for me I feel like this question would depend on what season I'm in. But I'm gonna have to go with scorching sauna because I still take hot showers even when summer. So what's your answer?

I'm kind of with a little bit of both so when I do cold plunging I normally do it after doing a sauna because I like that hot cold affect so that's basically when I do it most as like if I've taken a hot bath or I've been in a hot sauna then I'll do I'll end with a cold plunge and then I'll come out and just let my body like naturally heat itself up and that's when you get the best effects but if I had to choose one out of the two I think I would choose a sauna especially in the fall winter months

Matt, to do a double whammy on me was not something I was expecting at all. Is that safe? Is that okay for our bodies to do? I feel like we're just, you're like putting your body into different shocks. No? Like am I crazy? I've never even ever considered that being a combo, like something to do one after the other. That is something else. And I'm kind of interested.

I would love to have a awesome sauna. I would only stay in for a little bit but cold plunges are beneficial too and I've done both of them so I love both but I think it just depends what you're kind of into.

I've done cold plunges, but not voluntarily. When I would spend my summers away in Haiti, if I didn't want to waste my water to get warmed up, like heated by boiling water and mixing it with cold water, I would just do the cold punch style of taking a shower slash bath. So that was the way that I was doing that. And I see the benefits of it, but because I'm prone to being cold all the time, I trying to avoid that.

I think I'd rather do the searching sauna only because I've never done a cold ones I have been considering it but I am also a big baby and I'm scared

I feel like if you were to ever consider doing a cold plunge, I would recommend doing it in the summer so that way you already know like you'll warm up quicker when you get out of it versus like people do it in the winter, people do it out in Alaska, Antarctica. So I recommend if you do try it, that you try it in the summer when it's like hot peak summer, June, July.

So I'm definitely gonna pick cold plunge in the morning because it's a great way to start your morning and wake up. Um, cold plunging is hard, but the more you do it, you get used to it, you get better at it. The sauna, I can stand the sauna, but I mainly don't want to be sweaty before bed. It'll take a while to cool off and like I need to be cool when it's time for bed

Here's the thing about cold plunging. I also feel like I'm like deep diving underwater. It almost like it's supposed to cool you down after a while. It almost ignites a panic within me. It's such a process to really get into. But once you get into it, you know what to expect. But I personally, I love Niasana. I love to stay warm. It's what I like to do.

Yeah, cold punches can definitely ignite that panic feeling. I've done it like a handful of times and the first time I did it, I definitely had that panic feeling. Second time I worked with somebody and did like breath work and it was so much better when you do breath work and you focus on your breathing. But I actually like to do both of them. So I would get in the sauna and then the cold punch and then the sauna and then the cold plunge and oh my god my body felt amazing after.

I should have asked if whoever is anemic, how do they feel about it? I feel like all of my anemic girlies, my low iron decision girlies are going to pick sauna over cold punch. I just have a strong feeling about that. But yeah, I would prefer the sauna too. scorching hot

It's weird so I'm like torn between the two because I definitely love a really really good ice bath but a sauna also has really good benefits and I know I pick the sun up there but I think I have to go with ice bath the cold punch for sure

Do you want to know how I was introduced to iSpot? Do you remember the movie? Oh, damn it. I can't remember this movie. I'm going to come back to you later to tell you what the movie is. But basically she's training as a gymnastics girlie and she's going back into competition and she ends up doing the cold plunge. And that's when I started trying to do it. I think I was like 16. It was crazy. But no, I'm a doosana girl. You do the iSoulDoTheHot. Thank you.

Right like so I took my first I thought ice baths probably in high school when I was running cross country but living in Michigan or lakes never truly get super warm in the beginning of the summer so I'm used to just cold water anyways

Usually when I used to go to the gym with my aunt, we used to work out and then end the session with the sauna until our water's got hot so I prefer the cold plunge.

Wow Brenda, I thought that I knew you. I swear I thought you were gonna say sauna. I was not expecting for you to say that you do the cold plunge. Do you live in a warmer area? That's another question I should have asked because I feel like the answer would be based off of where people live. Do you live in a warmer area? I feel like if you were living here in New York you'd probably pick on us because it's cold here like 10 months out of the year.

Yes, I live in California. I live in the valley and it's always like 108 when it gets super hot. So that's why I chose cold flinch. But if I would live in New York when it's cold, probably the sauna but since I live in California I want the cold

Yeah a lot of the wellness centre is at least where I am located that's exactly how they do their cold plunging like whole entire set up is that they'll have hot saunas and steam rooms and then they'll cycle you through that into a cold plunge and then going in Tyler back into a cold like a sauna cold plunge and then you get out Yeah there's a really well-known spot up here that does it like that and it's incredible results

Oh my goodness. You know that's okay because I spent almost all week thinking about that conversation, that note that you left for me the other day. And I just, that is so interesting because I feel like, I feel like our body would be going into like some form of shock. Like the way I'm petering it is like you know when you're outside for too long in the winter where you can almost get frostbite but you're not supposed to to put your hands immediately in warm water. That's what I think of.

So the benefit actually is from the shock so you're right on and it's that shock that actually releases specific proteins that are actually called like shock proteins like there's a more complicated name but to simplify at their specific proteins that are activated because of the shock to your system and so it produces specific chemical releases and hormone releases in your body that are very healing and anti-inflammatory because your body does feel like it's in the sea

I'm obsessed with all the facts that you're giving me. You're such a factorial girly and I'm obsessed with it. I... you know what? Honestly, it makes me now kind of want to do cold plunges now that I have more of this understanding behind it. Because that shock almost kind of would trigger my panic attacks in a sense because I would feel like my body is reacting in a bad way. but it's supposed to be good.

oh my goodness I can't even and today's weather was relatively like nice last week was warm all week and I still would do this on them I can't I just I don't want to like for example I love hot showers love them I love when they're steaming hot the moment I open up the door to my shower and that breeze comes in I'm ready to collapse like I wish that I was a turtle to go inside of my show.

OK I've had to do plenty of cold as showers in Italy that I did not want to do and I like the heat so I would much rather burn in a sauna

Welcome to the club, girl, because everyone else was talking about cold plunge more power to them. Like, I feel like realistically I can probably do one or two cold plunges a year. The idea of doing it every day for a week not only saddens me greatly but makes me want to buy an electric blanket. Now I'm going Amazon.

Coming from someone who has done it a week in a row and not by choice I agree with you maybe one to two gives you that adrenaline rush that they're looking for but when you do it every day it's depressing and I felt like crap it did nothing for me and as far as benefits go and I did buy an electric blanket as well and I hope you get a cozy one
