Hot Tip: Use Endurolytes During Bikram Yoga

Use Endurolytes During Hot YogaMy Endurolytes have been sitting in the cupboard with all the chilly weather we’ve been having as of late. However, I came across a two weeks unlimited Bikram (Hot) Yoga for $20 offer that I couldn’t pass up. For those of you unfamiliar with Bikram Yoga, it is a 90- minute class performed in a room heated to about 105 degrees and 30% humidity. If you are not soaked after the first 10 minutes of practice, something is definitely wrong with you!

Anyway, it is recommended that water only be consumed during practice (no electrolyte drinks). The instructors say, “dizziness and nausea are normal; they are not signs that something is wrong and that you should stop…” Hmph. I decided to go against the grain and pop an Endurolytes at the beginning of class and another one hour into it. Voila! No dizziness or nausea for me!

  • Funny timing on this post – I’ve been using Hammer for my tri training, and have been doing a lot of Bikram lately. I just put two and two together this last week – taking two Hammer endurolyte pills each 20 minutes during Bikram – and it’s definitely the way to go!
