The health consequences could be deadly.
That’s according to Dr. Daniel Vigil, a health sciences professor at UCLA. And it’s all down to dehydration. You’re already dehydrated after a workout. Then, if you go sit in a steam room or sauna, you expose your body to more heat, leading to more sweating and dehydration, which drives up your blood pressure and makes your blood stickier. Which puts a strain on your internal organs.
Instead, go for a steam BEFORE your workout. It can loosen up your muscles. Just make sure you drink a tall glass of water before starting your workout.
