What Is Recommended After A Workout - A Hot Shower, A Cold Shower Or A Sauna? Why?

After a workout, taking a cool shower or using a sauna rather than a hot shower is generally recommended. While a hot shower can relax, it can also increase inflammation and delay the body's recovery. On the other hand, a cool shower or sauna can help reduce inflammation and speed up recovery time.

A cool shower or ice bath can help reduce muscle soreness and inflammation by constricting blood vessels and reducing blood flow to the affected areas. This can also help reduce swelling and promote healing. Similarly, a sauna can help increase blood flow and promote relaxation, which can also aid in the recovery process.

Ultimately, the best post-workout routine will depend on individual preferences and goals. However, if reducing inflammation and promoting recovery are top priorities, a cool shower or sauna may be better than a hot shower.
