Good day to all! I would like to ask if it is not right to take bath right after exercising. My mother keeps telling me to remove the sweat, rest and cool down for atleast 1 hour before taking bath. Could someone please help me with this simple question..Thank you so much!

The hot bath will keep you hot and you will continue to produce sweat even after you have dried off.

  • They do... why just this year the beginning of basketball season ... San Antonio Spurs Michael Finely sat out the season opener because of flu like symptoms... sweating ..quick to the showers ... continue to sweat.|Notice at some of the post game interviews after the player has left the showers and be sweating up a storm, and not from the camera lights.or continue to do what you do.... just have a huge supply of b-12 and vit c.
