Cardiovascular responses to isometric muscular exercise were evaluated during sauna. Nine healthy men aged 26 to 46 underwent testing during 5-6 saunas with one week interval between sessions. Each sauna included 2-6 heatings of 8-15 minutes (80-85 degrees C, humidity 15%) followed by complete cooling. Cardiovascular response during handgrip (45 seconds) were measured before sauna, after the first interval and 25 minutes after the end of sauna treatment.
