    Nope, you just sweat and lose water, which you replace as soon as you drink.

    Yeah, it will make you sweat a load of water out, but wont remove any fat.

    I've got to disagree here. Your heart rate increases to keep your body temp down at a comfortable level therefore if you know your heart rate is quicker then you are in effect having a cardio workout.

    and how many calories are burned compared to getting off your butt and having a nice jog in the park? or a walk with the family? TBH if you are thinking of structuring your BF% reduction programme around the use of saunas there is something seriously wrong with the advice you have been given...they will have a minimal effect and are yet another media hyped supplement for lazy people who want a 6 pack in a week and do f@@@@kc all for it

    Not gonna get involvded in a massive row here but!at the origin we do have steam pods and for some clients who have had trainsmart we do recomend a steam!
    If for example they have a very low fat bump say 120 or below,they put there polar on sit in the booth then control the temp to get there bpm so its spot on.
    Include some resistance and 30 mins fat burning then 30 mins in the steam pod it does seem to help.
    And the end of the day the same as an ECA stack fat burning is raising your bodys core temp!
    Our steam pods do increase the bpm quite dramatically!and of course raise your temp.
    Not saying it works,but what a great end to a good workout

    if you read current research saunas are now being used by athletes as a form of active recovery: the elevated heart rate in a sauna helps the body remove waste products from the muscles in the same way a gentle session would, but without the risk of the athlete over exerting themselves. previously i thught saunas were a waste of time but you never know.

    Ferret, that fits with the (unscientific but traditional) idea that saunas "sweat out" toxins. But an elevated heart rate while the rest of the body is doing nothing surely isn't doing anything for cardio except burning a little more fuel to work the heart!

    rhoumours like this really annoy me! the benefits of riasing your temp is minimal!

    i knew someone who, when trying to loose weight, drank about 4L of Orange juce a day. he thought he was sh1tting all the fat out!!!!! i LMAO lol!

    the article sited that the benefit of the sauna was caused by the elevated h.r ,caused by the heat stress, increasing blood flow to the muscles as in gentle exercise. If you think about it makes sense: everyone knows the importance of "cooling down" after training using gentle exercise.If this effect can be replicated in a sauna to improve recovery times i'm willing to give it a try!
