Pushing yourself at the gym is essential for great muscle gains, but that doesn’t come lightly. Your body will most likely be sore after a hard workout and it’ll take quite some time before it’s feeling super fresh and ready for another gym session.
The in home sauna can help you with your gym performance and benefit you in various ways such as:
Your muscle Recovery Process
After working out, your muscles work harder than they are accustomed to in daily activities, which causes them to form microscopic tears. These tears affect inflammation and can result in muscle soreness, tightness, cramps, and sensitivity. The use of a 2 person sauna, will enhance your muscles through the muscle recovery process by increasing blood circulation and carrying oxygen-rich blood to your oxygen-depleted tissues. During a sauna session, your body releases endorphins which help minimize the pain of muscle soreness.
Sweating during your workout helps cool you down, but it also helps release toxins in your body. You can increase the benefits of sweating well past your gym session by sweating in a far infrared sauna. Saunas help remove harmful elements such as toxic metals, alcohol, nicotine, and will likely make you feel better post-workout.
Your body is most likely already worn out and tired after a hard workout, so it’s best to keep it short and sweet in your post-gym in home sauna session. If you have never used it before, start with smaller intervals of time. Listen to your body, it’ll let you know if you’ve reached your limit but also be mindful and aware of the time you’ve spent inside and don’t overdo it. Also be wary of signs such as lightheadedness, dizziness, and headaches, as they might be indications that you are dehydrated or overheating.
Always make sure to stay hydrated, as you will be losing more fluids in a sauna than you will be taking in.
For healthy individuals, sauna bathing should be safe. But you shouldn’t use it with consulting a physician if you have any muscle or joint aches, swelling, redness, or tenderness when you are at rest or with light exercise.
