    When i was training in Thailand they used to make us go and run at 3pm, right in the middle of the midday sun. It got up to at least a solid baking 93, and i lost about four kilos in the first few weeks. These were not kilos my skinny ass could afford to lose, either.

    That said, if you do it every day your body does eventually adjust and you stop noticing it after a while.

    When i trained in Australia we had no aircon and it was in a block warehouse with a tin roof. Sometimes the outside temp would be 40C (110F) in the shade and even hotter inside. They had two industrial fans like on a movie set and everyone was always trying to stand in front of them.

    When i trained in Ireland we used an abandoned school and it had no heating or insulation so it was damp (all the paint and plaster peeling off kind of damp) and was sometimes below freezing.

    Best of both worlds i guess.

    When I was a lad we trained inside an active blast furnace at the local iron works. We were given nitric acid to drink once every three weeks and Sensai would thrash us with whips made of molten titanium if we broke stance.

    Kids today...tsk tsk...you don't know how lucky you are!

    I am assuming all the people who train in very high (85+F) temperatures at least do so in ventilated environments where at least the heat is not constantly built up, keeping the temperature under a certain ceiling...otherwise the folks who sweats too fast will not vent properly, will gain to much heat, lose water and salt too fast, and possibly succumb to heat exhaustion or even stroke.

    Hey, it worked for the Monkey King.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    That's nothing. I had to drink hot lead once every five weeks.:5bouncy:

    Yeah winter is tough. When I teach or train I often put on a hoodie over my uniform.

    BTW I've been meaning to ask this for a while but is that you personally in your avatar?

    Back in Cambridge, we were on the second floor of a church with a dance school on top, and that was a sweatbox.

    Now, in Cali, the temperature is whatever it happens to be outside since I train in a park. Unfortunately, San Francisco just pretends to have nice weather, but it's almost always a little chilly at least.
