Sunday sweats…

Let’s get real though…who doesn’t like a little sweat session sometimes?  Sweating feels good and ironically enough it can make you feel clean.  There is just something about getting all hot and bothered during a workout that makes it seem better.  Maybe it’s an animal instinct thing, maybe it’s just trying to get all of the alcohol out of your system.  Whatever your reason for wanting to sweat, they are yours and they can be tied to your personal goals.  I’m cool with that, but I just want to make sure that you and everyone here at Reebok CrossFit Back Bay isn’t missing out on some serious fitness.  If you are shying away from lifting heavy and some high intensity / short duration work you are missing out!!!

My work here is done,

Weekend sweat talk…

Also, there is the notion that the more you sweat, the more weight you are losing.  Weight loss is ABSOLUTELY achieved when sweating, but it is NEVER permanent.  Whatever weight is lost through sweat, will be regained the moment rehydration occurs.  Calories just don’t burn at a higher rate because you am sweating.  The work you do is what requires energy, but the sweating you sweat happens automatically (as long as you have the fluids to sacrifice for this autonomous function).

More tomorrow,

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,
