    I always liked sitting in a sauna for a bit. Feel like it cleans me out a little with all that sweating.

    that can't be true. or else everyone would have a six pack and be in saunas for a few hours a day.

    who said anything about a few hours? one hour a day would be more than sufficient if those calorie numbers are true. c'mon you can't possibly believe that shit can you?

    lol oh shit you're right i did. i think i meant to say few hours a week:rofl: but um, i dont think sitting in a sauna for a few hours would be hard, never tried it personally but i've done 45 minutes with no problem, if htere was a big screen tv with espn in there i could manage 3 hours i would guess.

    but on the important part, theres no way in hell sitting in a sauna for 30 minutes is burning 400 calories, NO FUCKING WAY. does anybody in here really believe that. am i the only sane one left?

    did you pour water over the rocks? it needs to be pretty damn hot, like 150 degrees. once it cools down you have to pour more water on it.

    coming from never being in a sauna, I suggest you try it. After half an hour it becomes hard to breath and it's not exatly easy to stay in there.
