    I nearly died.

    I was 70KG and needed to make 62KG for a Muay Thai fight the next day, i had read a bunch of threads online about how this was a great idea and was inspired by huge 20lb weight cuts like the UFC guys do.

    [​IMG]

    I turned the heating up super high in my house like that episode of friends.

    [​IMG]

    Then i ran a scaulding hot bath and got undressed.

    [​IMG]

    Then i poured a whole bag of Epsom salt into the bath.

    [​IMG]

    I could barely get into the bath it was so hot!



    I got in and was fully submerged.



    After 5 minutes i felt super high and was trying to watch a TV show but could barely follow it.

    [​IMG]

    Seconds felt like hours, minutes felt like days.

    [​IMG]

    I got out and nearly passed out on the spot. I was so weak i could barely dry myself off with a towel and could barely put my clothes back on.

    [​IMG]

    I think i lost 1KG?

    I went and lay in bed covered in towels and nearly passed out and died again.

    [​IMG]

    I did two more soaks and uttlery destroyed me and broke my spirit.



    I could not make weight and had to cancel the fight.

    [​IMG]

    It was the worst experience of my life and i will never have a bath again in my life. Overal i would recommend running with plastics as a much better way to lose weight.

    Better way to loose weight:

    Stop eating chips in your mom's basement.

    Never tried it before.
    Never cut more than 12 lbs. Running and sauna does the job for me.

    lol I remember when I didn’t know such of a thing known as water loading and cut 14lbs straight in the sauna the day before..... almost felt like I was gonna die.... versus the next cut when I did a water load and felt like I could of cut an extra 5 pounds easy.

    No i really did i thought it would work like magic, i have done 7lbs in a day through running with plastics and swimming/dehydration. I thought i could just lay in a bath and lose 20lbs but i nearly died and lost very little water weight.

    If true: 10/10 for storytelling.

    I've lost 10 lb in 2 hours in a sauna. I believe the sauna is quicker and easier than a hot bath, since the part of your body submerged in the water doesn't sweat.
