Sweaty yet?…

There is a belief that sweating is a direct result of exercise and that the two are directly and positively related.  That is to say that the more you exercise, the more you sweat.  Picture these two scenarios:

1)  Doing Fran…this past february…outside…in your bathing suit.

Are you going to sweat?  Maybe a tiny bit.  You will likely raise your body temperature and  you certainly got a good workout in, but it may not necessarily lead to sweating in any way.

2)  Sit perfectly still…in your winter jacket…outside…the entire fourth of July weekend.

Are you going to sweat?  Dangerously so!  You will unquestionably raise your body temperature without having done any fitness and you likely turn into an actual puddle of sweat.

The reality is that those two scenarios are not extremes, this is just how the body works.  If you get hot enough to require cooling, then sweating will occur.

No fitness required,

Let’s talk about sweat baby,

Medically speaking, sweating is the release of liquid from the body’s sweat glands. This liquid contains salt. This process is also called perspiration.  Sweating helps your body stay cool. Sweat is commonly found under the arms, on the feet, and on the palms of the hands.  The amount you sweat depends on how many sweat glands you have.  A person is born with about two to four million sweat glands. The glands start to become fully active during puberty. Women have more sweat glands then men, but men’s glands are more active.  Sweating is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. This is the part of the nervous system that is not under your control. Sweating is the body’s natural way of regulating temperature.

That’s a lot of talk about sweat, but so far none of it has including working out.  How can that possibly be?!

We’ll get it,
