Why I really miss Japanese onsen

The sauna is an excellent recovery tool, post-workout. No kidding, the best days I had were when I'd do MMA for about 3 hours and then head to the onsen with my coach and just soak in a hot pool and then sit in the sauna for a bit. You'd feel wrecked but sleepy and content . . . and fantastic the next day.

Joel Jamieson just put up an article explaining how to systematically use a sauna for recovery.

  1. I just got back from Japan and my son and I went to a local sentou twice. It was like heaven.
