    Does taking a sauna/steam-room after a workout affect gains/recovery?

    Was wondering this today when I was sweating my balls off in the sauna. Is it good for the body to sit in a 50 C room with you sweating out every pore, after an intense workout?

    Even if you've had your post workout shake?

    I usually get in the sauna 3-4 times a week for 15-20 minutes. I seem to feel less sore the next day

    just stay hydrated.

    thats called the "russian" shower or bath, I forget which.

    basically if people were sick you would sit in a steam sauna for a while, then go outside and jump in a hole in the ice over a lake.

    lol

    the cold therapy supposedly increases Test production, whereas the pwo sauna supposedly increases GH. so both would be beneficial I suppose. I think the calstrength guys do hot and cold therapy, might be interesting to ask them about it. (jared e posts in the olympic lifting section here)

    hahah. i know i feel better recovery if i do contrast showers, which is 30s cold, 1 minute hot, for about 10 minutes after rugby practice or a game.

    but like you said, it seems both can be used beneficially.

    heres a good article on tempering, the Pavel guy is the big advocate and wrote a piece in an old Milo magazine about it.

    I think one of the keys is to do the cold last, and then don't do warm after cold:
