Cardio with Layers of Clothes, Safe?

I know that fighters will wear multiple layers of clothes when they are trying to cut weight.

Is this a safe or effective practice to wear a couple layers of sweats for daily cardio workouts assuming I drink enough water?

P.S. I bought the P90X program a while back and while it is great, I don't have time for an hour and a half work out every day. What I am doing is the Cardio-X DVD each night which is only 45 minutes and still utilizes segments of workouts from each of the other videos all in one. If you can buy them separate and need a good cardio DVD, get the P90X Cardio-X disc.

You'll mainly be losing water weight. I wouldn't do it. You will gain the weight right back when you eat or drink anything.

Fighters also don't eat or even drink one drop of water sometimes all day before a weigh-in. Then they gain a lot back in the next day. A guy could weigh in at 170 and be 190 the next day for his fight.
