After a strenuous workout, is there anything to be gained from soaking in a spa? If you prioritize health and fitness, and want to get more from your workout, here’s how to safely use the hot tub to ease pain and promote muscle recovery.
Cool Down, and Then Soak
After taxing the muscles—and a proper cool down session, soaking in the swirling waters of a hot tub is relaxing. Elevated heat penetrates deep into muscle tissue, while massaging jets target pain on contact.
Hydrate Before Entering the Tub
Water helps hydrate, but it also regulates body temperature, which increases during strenuous activity. Before using the hot tub, drink enough to ensure body temperature has adequate time to return to normal.
Soak to Heal A Day After Exercise
24 hours after a tough workout is a great time to use the hot tub. Heat, massage and buoyancy are a powerful combination. Lounging in the spa quickens the pace of healing by reducing post work out stiffness and muscle fatigue.
So Go Ahead, Take a Soak, You Deserve It!
It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.
