    I discovered something new to add to my daily workout routine. Usually i walk around the truck stops for about 20 min a day every other day or so. I also carry a 35lbs weight in the truck and do a few stationary excercises.

    But now i've added something new.

    It's called a "SAUNA SUIT"

    I was reading on line that boxers put these on while they work out to get their weight down to where they want to be before a fight. Well, "the golden boy" Oscar de la hoya wears these suits all the time a few months before a fight. I mean like All the time, like to go to the grocery store, the gym, wherever. It makes you sweat/loose weight/inches just by wearing the suit.

    I went to walmart and bought one for myself.

    It was $10.

    I put it on right before i started driving on a 10 hour shift. I took it off about 2-3 hours later.

    It worked!

    I was drenched in sweat. Felt perfectly fine. Felt wayyy lighter. Wiped all the sweat off with a towel, changed clothes. Continued on and finished my shift.

    The next day i did it again. Just put the suit on for a couple hours while i drove and WAM ! Broke another sweat.

    I've been doing this for a month now and i already lost 4 inches off my waist.

    I eat and drink normal food. (no diet) I drink lots of water while wearing the suit because you sweat ALOT(keep the a/c on). I havn't added anymore excersise to my routine except for the regular walks around the truck stops.

    I wash the suit with regular water every day as needed.

    I love this new suit. I think i'll go to walmart and get me a couple more just in case. Sporting goods section.

    This is a colossally bad idea. Just begging for an electrolyte imbalance.

    I saw a guy doing this while getting loaded or unloaded (using dumbells). I put my hand on seats and feet on bed and do deep pushups. Just be careful and not hit your head on gearshift :biggrin_2556: Also do squats while holding onto seat. Walk/run at truck stops. seems like most truck stops today are junk food (fried). I try to stay with wraps (sandwiched) and salad type food. I'm guilty of hotdogs from time to time. Eat cereal as snack. Drink plenty of water. Just some food for thought.
