Sauna Suit Benefits

By Geoff Griffiths @mmatraining1980

Hi! so sauna suits are great, but I wouldn’t use them for long term weight loss – you are dehydrating yourself not losing bodyfat.

In fact, if you want to increase your metabolism, you’re probably better off getting really cold and having an ice bath

Using a sauna suit to lose weight long term is ineffective! Boxers use them before they weigh in for a fight but immediately rehydrate after they make weight.

Assuming you get hot enough by exercising in your sauna suit, you can enjoy some sauna-related benefits which include:

  • Heat shock proteins (reduce inflammation)
  • Reduced pain
  • Increased GH secretion
  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • Sweating is a genuine way to detox
  • General feeling of wellbeing

Saunas are also great for depression and mental health.

I enjoy going for a walk in my suit, getting a massive sweat-on – it leaves me feeling great afterwards

I also like to go for a ‘sauna suit walk’ prior to doing (very) hot yoga

I’ve found hot yoga much more effective for improving flexibility than yoga at a normal temperature.

At your own risk, you can get even hotter in a sauna suit by using full flush niacin and chilli rub. Start off with tiny amounts though, both can be pretty brutal
