I find it helpful to bring water in there and hydrate as im sweating fluids out. Feels like youre detoxifying yourself in a way. It also helps me feel better when im sick or i have my sinuses acting up.
Well that's pretty obvious that you would need to drink extra water if you are going to be sweating after a training session...I would usually drink upwards of two litres of water if I'm having a sauna. If I'm training then having one that doesn't include my one litre of milk post workout

john - i was planning on leaving the mushrooms and ecstasy out of it for once.
Probably a good idea to leave the drugs out, but if it does happen at least it is getting out of your system which is a good thing.

I think the general consensus is it is beneficial if you top up your fluids and electrolytes, it helps remove toxins through the skin and if you take a COLD shower after is acts as a great contrast therapy.
