The Heat is On...But It should't Be

I've taken a few yoga classes with mixed results, but I won't deny that dedicated study won't produce excellent improvements in flexibility and balance. However I never bought the premise of hot yoga, which is that making your training conditions more wretched will help you stretch and of course wash out those pernicious unspecified toxins that always plague your body. I was happy to see some research that supports my position that adding heat and humidity to your training is more of a gimmick than a benefit. You see a lot of this phenomenon in the fitness industry, where people think that misery is the purest measure of how effective a workout is, but I always say that training should be difficult, but it shouldn't be uncomfortable.
