How much do you Sweat ???

When your body temperature rises your glands secrete sweat and the evaporation of moisture from your skin helps you cool off. How much you sweat during exercise is due to a number of factors, including gender, age, genetics, temperature and humidity and it isn’t necessarily always an indication of how hard you’re working or how many calories you’re burning.

Weight plays a role as well. Larger people tend to sweat more, because their bodies generate more heat. 

Another contributor is fitness level – Fit people tend to sweat more and sooner during exercise as research suggests that as your fitness level improves, your body’s heat-regulating system becomes more efficient, cooling you down faster and allowing you to work harder.

However, on the flip side, don’t assume that if you’re not sweating you’re not working hard – it could be that your sweat evaporates quickly because you’re exercising in cooler conditions or you just simply may not sweat much!
