    cooling device

    Hi all. I checked the clothing section and did not find what I am looking for.

    Issue:
    not making it through one hour workout due to heat exhaustion

    Background:
    I have taken fluvoxamine for a decade and one of the side effects is quick heat exhaustion. I started working out in February and have trouble making it through an hour routine. My trainer breaks it down as much as he can to try and make sure I finish the workout but sometimes that just doesn't help. It takes a few hours to recover once I hit that heat exhaustion point, as any standard heat exhaustion does.

    The workouts generally consist of core warm-up and then weights. Some days it is treadmill and core/resistance.

    Expected resolution:
    Not telling me I need to work out more, harder, or shorter to *build* against heat exhaustion. The problem is medically induced and I have no plans of changing my medicine as hard as it is to find a working combination. Giving information about working out in a different manner will be great.

    A cooling device such as a shirt or vest that can keep my core temperature down.

    I'd prefer not to get soaked when wearing it, but being damp'ish will not be an issue. There may also be some regular workout clothing that you all will recommend.

    Thanks

    If you have this issue why is the trainer having you do one hour workouts? If you cant get a decent workout in around 45 minutes, find a PT who can.

    Because that is what the company requires while they are paying him $60/hr per person - 1 hour - not 45 minutes. And they're getting pissy about it.

    It's different stuff every day... upper body one day, lower body one day, total body some days. Some days cable machines and some days free weights.

    Try ice packs, on your wrists (main arteries), back of neck, chest, forehead and temples. They'll cool your skin temperature down much better than cooling towels from Bath Bed and Beyond...or even Dicks Sports Goods. But you can try those "moisture- wicking cool technology" athletic gear from Dicks that is so popular now. You'll still feel hot, fatigued and become exhausted faster, especially in a gym that doesn't use AC for their members...or has a poor air ventilation system. Talk to the GM, with the support of your trainer. If they value your business, as well as their many members whose performance is negatively affected by the stifling humidity, then they'll put on more AC!!

    In the meantime, use the ice packs in between sets, stay well- hydrated before AND during training and stop if you feel dizzy, lightheaded, nauseous, as if you're losing balance or coordination, blurred vision, etc..Your trainer, I'm sure, is carefully monitoring your progress, performance, form, asking your feedback and making appropriate modifications and/or adjustments....

    You can still push yourself. Don't give up. Just know your limits and work around them, with the experience and guidance of your trainer. You will still progress! Best of luck to you

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    Can't give recommendations about "working out in a different manner" if you can't adequately describe what you are currently doing.

    He doesn't mean the company you work for but the gym(company) you train at. If that trainer is being paid 60/hr(which sounds outrageous by most box gym standards) you must be paying a chitload per hour. For that kind of money you should be able to have some say in how long the workout lasts. If the trainer can't work around your needs then you should absolutely find another trainer. Also if you're "doing different stuff every day" that trainer sucks.

    dumping excess heat is easy. You need two things: wet cotton shirt and pants and rapid air movement. Have fun blowing at you while you do your training, every gym has one. As clothes dry up a little, wet them again. It will cost you nothing to have these two elements arranged.
