    Tan BEFORE or AFTER workout?

    I'm going to go tanning twice a week to combat acne on my upcoming cycle (along with B5 and Mincocycline and twice daily showers)

    Is it better to tan before or after a workout? Definately grabbing a PWO shake right after the workout.

    you might as well go tanning while you're already sweaty anyways!

    Not that tanning has anything to do with working out, but I'd tan prior to workout for one reason- it would warm up your muscles and joints for you.

    yeah but then you have lotion all over you and it would make working out a little bit harder correct?

    Me too......u also sweat out a lot of SUB-Q water, allow your pre-workout supps to kick in (eca's, etc.), and you look nice N dark @ the gym. Once your workout is over, you can go home and eat/shower/etc....

    I'd hate to lay in a booth all nasty/sweaty and attempt to put lotion on...........ugh..............

    I used to go after my workout after downing my pwo shake, but if you're training hard it is kinda gross to lay in your own sweat like that. I just never went before i started lifting because I don't like smelling like burnt chicken in the gym.

    I think it makes you tired, just like being in the sun all day. I see my performance hindered.

    Tanning after you workout will allow your skin to take in more UVA/UVB rays as your pores are opened more PWO. This will save alot of money b/c trying to tan with your pores closed and smoothe skin will take much longer than PWO. Try it!
