Got a gym membership to a place that has a nice whirlpool/hot tub/whatever they’re called. I was wondering what the physiological effects would be on using it before and after workouts.
I’ve been spending 10 minutes in it after workouts to relax - and I find myself extremely weak when I get out - completely drained. I don’t know if that’s positive, negative, or either.
I’ve considered spending 5-10 minutes beforehand too to loosen up, but I don’t know if that would have benefits or not.
What are the general physiological effects, and what are they specifically pertaining to excercise? Are there benefits, or negatives?
