I was shopping on the website of FUJI sports (they make judo/JJ gis), that I noticed they sell their own brand of sauna suit called the active move suit. I purchased it and have never been more SATISFIED! Im amazed on how much sweat I produced

My issue with sauna suits is that clinical trials say that they only really shed water weight with the added risk of increased dehydration and hyperthermia. If you love them, that's great, just make sure you're keeping an eye on hydration and body temperature. For me, there is too much evidence against them to be worth it.

Frankly I shed enough water weight during a 1.5 hour workout WITHOUT the sauna suit. Generally by the end of the workout, I think my gi gains about 5 lbs, or so it feels.

Agreed! Fighters use these suits specifically to shed water weight before a fight so they can make a lower weight class, and we've seen how dangerous weight-cutting can be. Sweating more does NOT equal burning more calories, but DOES increase your risk of overheating and becoming dehydrated.

Thank you guys for the feedback. I modified the initial post, and added a health disclaimer as you are all correct, that there are risk involved with weight cutting via body heating methods.
