YOU REALLY BROKE A SWEAT TODAY AND FEEL LIKE YOU HAD A GREAT WORKOUT.
You even lost a pound!
Sweat is a good thing. Sweat is healthy. Sweat is your body's cooling system.
Maybe you did have a great workout. But how much you sweated may have nothing to do with the quality of your workout.
The amount you sweat depends on several factors including the temperature in your workout environment, the humidity, how hydrated you are on that day, your body temperature on that day (by the way your body temperature is seldom exactly 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit), even what you had for breakfast.
And just because you always sweat more than your workout partner just means you were born with more sweat glands than your partner.
You may have sweated more because you worked harder-or not.
Sweating more doesn’t mean you burned more calories either. That pound you lost was just fluid- not fat. You’ll gain it back as soon as you re-hydrate.
And sorry, that overpriced saran wrap to wrap around your body or rubber workout suit you bought from the infomercial huckster or the fake fitness guru may make you sweat more but it won’t burn fat either.
