Hot Workout Tips

You may not be aware of one of the biggest crazes that we have seen in the fitness industry in a long time and that is the hot workout.


A hot workout is a workout that is done in a very high temperature studio and consists of stretching and usually yoga. The idea for some people is that if they are doing this in a very warm environment then they will be sweating and should lose weight. I know that it seems like a good idea but the trouble with this strategy is that you are not losing weight from your workout raising your metabolism but instead you are just sweating from the heat.

Do not get me wrong. Yoga is a very good method of getting limber, stretching muscles and can lead to significant strength increases and also will help you lose weight. Bikram Yoga is designed to methodically warm and stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons in the order in which they should be stretched. This type of Yoga promotes the cleansing of the body but the fact that you are doing a hot workout in a hot room does not make it any better for losing weight in my opinion.
