Dear all, How did you manage your workout schedule?? I realized...recently some of you who signed up for fitness center and started training for some times. Actually, I've signed up for Celebrities Fitness before (2-3 years ago), but i never enter the gym more than 5 times. Seriously, I don't know why i joined, i think it's mostly because the facilities.. The changing room, sauna, shower room, everything is so luxury & nice.So i guess that's the reason i joined last time.. *wasted my money*
I'm not a sporty girl last time, all my interest is just alcohol, party and shopping. LOL!
Well, For those who looking for shortcuts in weight losing..
Here's something I would LOVE to share about ❤
As i said, i joined gym last time....
I actually spend more time in the sauna room/steam room than really working hard for my body last time. I thought I was burning more fats than I'm on a treadmill because my body feel the heat and I sweat A LOT!!! And of course!! it's so ENJOYING and RELAXING when I'm in the sauna room. Just sitting there to burn fats...Without doing anything, i think that's possible? LOL!
Believe it or not, for 90 minutes workout period, I usually spent 45-50minutes in the changing room!!!
That was the old ME btw, Hope you girls don't make the same mistakes I did :(
Doesn’t that sound nice? Is it possible?? Burning calories without doing anything?
HAHAHAHAHAHA, You wish!
Here's a photo of my 5km running.
So what makes people think that you burn such a high rate of calories in a sauna??
Fact is, what you do in a sauna or steam room is no way would makes you ever burn any more than double the rate of calories by just -----> SITTING !
How many calories are burned in a sauna?
Here’s an equation you can use to estimate out how many you’re burning:
Specific to your bodyweight x 80% or 85%(maximum) = calories burned
Healthy male of 75kg x 80% . In this case, the individual would burn roughly 60 to 65 calories.
That’s a huge difference from the 300 to 1000 estimate!
Can You Lose Weight in a Sauna or Steam Room?
Yes. But you’re not building muscle, you aren’t burning a significantly raised rate of calories, and you’re really only losing water weight. In addition, not replacing the water you are sweating out can actually make it harder for your body to lose weight.
The weight that you lose while you sit in a sauna room is purely WATER!! Water that you should be replacing as fast as you are losing, otherwise you are just dehydrating your body. Not practicing proper hydration while you’re in one of these sauna is UNHEALTHY and actually makes it tougher for your body to lose pounds permanently, as hydration is an essential ways in shedding extra weight!
Really, you wouldn’t even want to use a sauna for weight loss even in the most temporary instances. For example, if you were trying to lose weight very quickly for an event or to squeeze into a particular dress, you would feel (and maybe even look) terrible if you had used a sauna to drop those last few pounds before the event without rehydrating your body after the sweat session.
You’re much better off with real WORKOUT/EXERCISE. You create a true temperature regulation/metabolic boost effect on your body while exercising; when you push your body into strenuous physical activity, your metabolism is stoked as it tries to regulate body temperature, AND all of your muscles are called upon to function in unison, and your heart rate is elevated. That BURNS calories! Far more than sitting in a hot steam room or sauna.
There’s no problem with sauna. In fact, there are debatably some health benefits to be gained from it. Just make sure that your main objective is not solely to lose weight; the calories burned in those sitting sessions are not substantial, you aren’t burning fat, and you are not building muscle.
Lastly, enjoying steam or sauna room is not a bad addition as your fitness routine.
It can serve as a bit of treat after a stressful and tiring workout.
Just want you girls don't SIMPLY BELIEVE that it's gonna help you to lose any weight (water actually) that you won't re-drink in the next few hours !!
Share this info out for those who stills believing sauna can LOSE WEIGHT :)
Alright, off to gym. Will updates my blog again when i'm free!
