Is It Better To Use A Sauna Before Swimming Or After?

It is generally better to use a sauna after swimming rather than before. When you use a sauna, your body temperature rises, causing your blood vessels to dilate and increasing blood flow to the skin's surface. This can cause dehydration, negatively affecting your performance in the water. In addition, the heat can cause your muscles to become relaxed and potentially increase your risk of injury during your swim.

Using a sauna after swimming, on the other hand, can be beneficial. The heat and steam can help relax your muscles, reduce inflammation, and promote recovery after your swim. It can also help you relax and reduce stress, positively impacting your health and well-being.

In summary, while using a sauna can be beneficial, it is generally best to use it after swimming to avoid dehydration and potential muscle relaxation that can impact performance in the water.
