I run regularly here and often see people wearing those suits during even the hottest times of the year. Those suits were proven to be dangerous and ineffective decades ago. Any weight lost is just water which is quickly replaced. Of course I often see Thai people running with more clothes on than I would wear in the dead of a North American winter.

RIP young talent!

 

To @SpokaneAl in your yout you don't necessarily register the fatigue, but as we are talking about a recognized muay thai fighter, my bets are somewhere else.

Please keep on topic on this, yet another, tragic loss and stop the "columbo act" when you have nothing to bring into the table. At least show some respect.

Its the dangers of weight cut before the match. Some fighters has to lose alot of weight to fight in a certain well below weight class to gain advantage. 

I think there have to be some rules like a fighter cannot fight more than 10 pounds below their actual weight to ensure a safe n healthy weight cut before the fight.

Otherwise healthy young people doing a lot of training and sweating too much lose a lot of Magnesium causing a deficiency. Magnesium deficiency is directly related to muscle cramps, and a familiar cause of heart failure or heart attacks. If you're going to 'sweat it out' make sure you top it up. Common in hot countries.

That's the whole idea of them..you cut the last bit of water weight by sweating excessively before you weigh in then you can get it back between the weigh-in and the fight.

Sad.  If you are not use to living in this

heat you should research the importance 

to stay hydrated....trying to make weight

in this BKK heat will easily cause a heat

stroke if you are not hydrated.

BANGKOK: -- A well-known Scottish Muay Thai boxer was found dead in sweat suit in Nakhon Ratchasima Sunday afternoon apparently because of heat stroke, police said.

 

Jordan Coe, 20, was preparing to have a charity fight in Nakhon Ratchaisma Sunday evening before his body was found. Police have sent the body was an autopsy.

 

Kritchai Kritnok, Coe’s trainer, told police that he last saw the Scottish boxer in tight clothes with sweat suit on top running at noon Saturday to try to reduce his weight by 3 kilogrammes. But the boxer did not return to his resort, the trainer said.

 

Coe was found dead on the open ground in front of Bang Saphan Hin resort at 2:45 pm Sunday.

 

Coe belonged to the Lamnammoon Muay Thai camp in Ubon Ratchathani.

 

The camp’s owner, Kuekrit Kamolrit, 44, said Coe was popular thanked to his good performance and his Isaan dance to please the audience. He has fought 14 bouts and was beaten just one during the past year.

 

He had an alias of the jom serng (the Isaan stye dancer) because he liked to dance and played kaen (Isaan traditional wind instrument) before each fight.

Yes, I often see people packed in thick running suits with their hoods up, running in the midday sun.

 

I used to belong to a running club and  train for marathons in Europe, and one of the things that was stressed to us was NOT to cover the whole head in the summer months, but wear a thin cap, in order to prevent heatstroke. That was in 20 to 25 degrees.

 

I think something like 30% of the body heat escapes through the head.

Tragic. If you are exercising vigorously in this country you must drink fluid almost constantly. He died in the same way as the 3 SAS soldiers during summer training in Wales a couple of years ago, fluids not being replaced leading to the body core temperature rising to critical levels.  Strength and fitness is no protection. 

Wearing a sweat suit here is playing with fire, and certainly has zero health benefits.
