Why the heat?

Seven Reasons for the Heat:

  1. Causes vasodilation (dilation/increased luminal diameter of blood vessels) which increases oxygen supply to the muscles and aids in the removal of waste products such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid.
  2. Allows oxygen in the blood to detach from the hemoglobin more easily thus improving oxygen availability to muscles.
  3. Speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids
  4. Makes muscles more elastic and less susceptible to injury
  5. Improves coordination.
  6. Ensures a cardiovascular workout.
  7. Turns you into a fat burning machine! Remember – sweat is fat crying :) .
