    Hot Dojo

    So today in BJJ the instructor closed the double garage doors.

    Anyone who has ever been to Toronto knows that for a Canadian city this places gets seriously hot an HUMID in the summer.

    It was so f'n humid I was having trouble catching my breath and had to keep taking gator aide breaks and then tell people not to knee on belly me or I might spew.

    Anyways the instructors point was that training in that condition makes it easier when you go to comps where the air flows and isn't stuffy and you can breath and its good to get used to.

    I believe him but still, holy crap that sucked today the only benefit was my 2 1/2 layer of sweat made it hard for people to sub me.

    Does anyone else train like this? thoughts? Is right or wrong?

    Best comment of the class "this is like hot yoga minus the hot chicks and you have to roll around with sweaty men... :(

    Well, training in that type of heat does help get your muscles nice and warm. I tend to get really good stretches during these classes. Unfotunetly you also have to worry more about heat stroke and need to constantly be drinking fluids.

    I can see the benifit, but I don't particularly like to train this way

    so long as you remain hydrated, it's fine. quite popular with brazilian instructors, in my experience; turns out they're actually reptiles, and can't maintain their own body temperature. possibly amphibian, given the surfing.

    at the old gym, we turned the thermostat up to 80 before class. here, we turn off the fans. no ac in the warehouse, and the instructor wants everybody ready for the field trip to rio in a few months.

    be mindful that there's a major difference between "i'm hot and sweaty" and "my body is warmed up and ready to go."

    (me, i like cold air and warm mats)

    It wasn't that it was hot but humid you have to be here to understand this sticky ass humidity. California gets way hotter but is a dry heat.

    he also made us take a lot of water breaks so I don't think heat stroke is a worry, but its like trying to breath through a damp rag.

    On a side note my one triumph was shrimping and hip bumping while underside mount until I got me and my opponent in front of the one fan. VICTORY!!

    My judo dojo is pretty frickin' hot too. No A/C, just an industrial fan (it's over an auto-body shop). I actually enjoy training in the summer though. Once you get a couple nasty hot practices you get used to it and you're much looser and less likely to injure yourself.

    I lost nearly 10 pounds in 90 minutes training last summer.

    I think its a great idea, but its certainly NOT the most comfortable training ever!

    Ugh, on our No-gi days ,everyone thinks its a good idea to open up the windows and ****.

    I always go and close them. Sure, it feels good as ****, but pulled muscles don't.

    From what I understand, Rolls or Royler or one of them used to, in Brazil, close the windows and turn off the fans come competition season, but the comps were always poor ventilated.

    I personally can't really train that way. My brain just shuts down.

    I know what you mean, if its too freakin' hot and stuffy, i can't think of anything but how hot and stuffy it is.

    I like it warm, even on the hot side. I like sweating ,lol
