There are 4-250 watt lamps in a diamond pattern. I usually let the lamps heat the sauna up to around 100 deg F. Then I spend 12 minutes on the front side, and 6 minutes each on the other sides, including another go at the front. I sweat heavily and have a higher oral temp increase from this than from the hot air sauna at the rec center. I follow this with a 20 minute soak with 49 deg F. water.
This is next level biohacking. I love it! I'm just doing the sauna at the gym and cold showers... but it's a start haha. Humble beginnings until my girlfriend comes home one day to find 4 heat lamps in our shower.. hehe
Also, happen to have any sleep hacks? This is one area I know I need to get right. I bartended for years and have been somewhat of a night owl, with a non-regular sleep cycle and often times not getting 7-8 hours. Trying to make this close to the top of my priority list to straighten out. My 23 & Me even said I'm likely not a deep sleeper.
My apologies for taking this thread way off topic.

What exactly do you use to measure ketones and glucose? Relatively green in terms of starting to monitor some of my markers. Just had my first blood panel done but would be interested in monitoring my ketones/glucose if you have any recommendations on how to get started.
