Sweating is the body’s natural way to cool itself and fight off illness. Some people sweat profusely at night; others will sweat when they become chilled or if their bodies don’t feel right. Sweat can also be a sign of an underlying medical condition, so it is important to check with your doctor before changing your exercise routine.
How do I get started?
It may seem daunting, but sweating should become part of daily life. The first step is making sure you are properly hydrated—you should drink half your weight in ounces every day (not counting caffeine). Start by drinking eight glasses per day for maximum benefit! To start sweating fast, load up on water or juice after high-intensity exercise or during hot weather workouts. Drinking afterward will cause you to sweat more quickly because adrenaline increases perspiration levels during periods of stress. Drink plenty of water while exercising, especially if you are doing cardio training like running or biking outdoors in hot temperatures without proper hydration beforehand.* If you work out inside, make sure the machines are well-ventilated and that air circulates freely through them so you can stay cool while working out longer than normal.* Finally, steer clear of alcohol as it slows down your metabolism and dehydrates you even further!*
