So I see a lot of people using waist trimmers (sweat sweat, dripfit etc) and so on to get the water out of the waist/lower back.

So the question is what’s more beneficial using that on one body part (well maybe shorts too) during cardio or getting your full body sweat in the sauna (well if you have access obviously)

I’m talking end of prep I know they don’t burn fat. (Even tho some claim heating up the body boosts metabolism by 5% etc)

I think waist trimmers are a large fad... but something evolved from the good old days of saran wrap LOL

That being said, saunas or other water loss strategies won't aid your look onstage if you've still got fat to lose. People place the wrong amount of thinking into things that really aren't going to make a difference. I tend to promote staying away from saunas in general (i've never been a big fan) due to the amount of sweating and electrolyte loss/dehydration that occurs. And just a little tid bit of info - your body actually burns more calories by shivering than sweating (still I would consider that minimal lol)

Your body moves water around within minutes. Just because you sweat more because you warm up an area doesn't mean you deplete it. Your body will simply move water to balance your total hydration.

Yeah I agree! I mean common sense in me says one thing but then you see so many keep doing it I’m like maybe I’m missing on something. I know it’s not going to make huge difference if you have ton of fat. I’m focusing on fat loss first for sure this is just extra thing.
