How much do you know about sweating in the sauna?
Many thinks, you lose weight from the heat in the sauna. You’ll be shock if of the answer. Why I go and love it? It relaxes my joints and helps my RA. It relaxes me. It’s my quiet time and it’s a great detox. Drink plenty of water afterwards.
I took the liberty of finding additional information that’s conclusive from the professionals from “THE DAILY BURN”
Your recent workout left you sweating buckets that means it was great, right? Not necessarily. “Sweat is not always a great indicator of how good your workout was,” says Jessica Matthews, the American Council on Exercise‘s Senior Adviser on Health and Fitness. Then there’s the common misconception that how much you sweat determines the amount of calories you’ve burned — which is not always the case.
First, a lesson on why you’re dripping (or staying pretty dry): “Sweating is one way your body prevents itself from overheating,” explains Matthews. When you exercise, your body literally heats up, stimulating your sweat response.
Then, as sweat evaporates off your skin into the air, you cool yourself down.
But it’s important to remember that each person is unique. “Some people can be really sweaty even if they’re not being very physically active, [whereas] someone else can go to the gym for 60 minutes and look like they barely stepped out of the house,” explains Matthews.
