Does anyone know if there are any advantages or disadvantages in using a dry sauna after your p90X workouts? Thanks for any info.

There was a study done in which the participants who sat in a sauna for 15 to 20 mins following a cardio workout saw a % increase in their endurance level vs those who did not use a sauna following a cardio workout... if you have the time and access to one... I would take advantage...

I agree. If you have access to one it wouldnt hurt! I wished i had access to a sauna! I would think it would help relax your muscles as well!

It has always been relaxing to me. If you have the space, you can buy a personal suana for your home for about $1000. If you are lucky, like I was, you can find a good used one for around $500. I found a 1 person infrared sauna used for about $450 and I have loved it. I just wanted to make sure it was not hurting the workouts I am doing. Thanks for the info.

I can't think of any reason not to do it if you're into that.
