Is it good to sweat alot? I sweat a hell of alot.... my grey workout shirts slowly and completely change color from sweat during my workouts, and at least a drop falls from my brow every 5 steps.. can't say i'm a fan of it, but is it a good thing or bad? and yes i'm more than replacing what i lose, drank over 2L of water in 11.5km tonight

From what I have read in the past sweating is good for you it flushes out a lot of toxins and releases a lot of 'feel good' hormones. Sweating when exercising shouldn't be a problem, I'd be happy if that was the only time I sweated, I can work up a sweat just going shopping, especially in summer :oops: Hopefully enough exercise sweating will resolve that problem before next summer hehe. Just keep replacing lost fluids and you'll be right :)

Sweating is a good thing :) it means your body is trying to cool you down! if you didnt sweat you would overheat and die. :P

thanks capt. duh =) i'm more enquiring about the effects of excessive sweating. I have a fan on me while i run, and am by no way hot. in fact, the wetness in my shirt is rather freezing :S

Your talking about your external temperature, your body doesnt really give a crap how hot or cold your skin is its the inside organs its worried about :) hence why doctors dont take your temperature by sticking a thermometer on your arm!
I leant all about this in my human bio unit this year, it was bloody boring. Your body detects a rise in temperature, so it sends a message to your brain and your brain then decides that to combat this rise in temperature you will sweat, this cycle goes on and on and you will sweat more and more until your body is satisfied that your temperature has returned to normal. Besides stopping exercise theres nothing you can do to stop the excess sweating. :)

I find if I'm really working out, my hands go really cold. I asked someone about this and she said that all the blood is rushing to my heart to keep it up and that's why my hands get cold. The body is truly amazing.
