What’s been going on this week? Quite a lot actually.

Video : Higher DOSE Infrared Sauna Blanket Review – And Comparison To An Actual Sauna (Katie Type A)
This is a very interesting comparison of a relatively low-cost, portable device with a full-size sauna. Over to Katie.

Of course if budget and space allow, a full-size sauna is still preferable (both for the health and aesthetic benefits).
Gymchat 278 – TBAWe’re still finalising the details for this week’s discussion. I’ll post them on the blog (and Twitter, Facebook etc) shortly.

And if you’ve got any questions or comments on the various topics discussed, we’d love to hear them. Just leave a note below the video.
Bud Jeffries, and Personal Trainer & Strength Athlete Josh Hewett. Great conversation.

Ever Tried Kettlebells?
If you've seen people using them but never taken the plunge yourself, here are the ones I use personally. You can also pick up a book/DVD/course if you want to learn how to put them to work.
Tip of the Week : Learn How to Sleep Correctly (Dr Matthew Walker)Each week we publish a number of tips and techniques via Twitter, the blog; and the newsletter. Wherever you are, there’s always a way to improve what you’re doing.
We’ve certainly discussed sleep – my favourite form of recovery – many times over the years, and this is a great summary of the basics. Nice one.
