Sweating not required
I’ve read and heard that if you’re not sweating hard enough, then you’re not working hard enough. That’s not true. Not everyone sweats the same amount. The employee at the carpet store had drips of sweat down his face, while my husband and I were quite comfortable.
At a hot yoga class, my towel will be soaking, but I’ll burn more calories and be super exhausted by just 30 minutes of squats, lunges with weights and jumps…and I’m not sweaty during weight-training.
Some people cannot sweat because of a condition called anhidrosis aka hypohidrosis. You can read more about this from the Mayo clinic from the following link: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/anhidrosis/DS01050
So, now you know. If someone tells you work harder, show them that karate kick you’ve been practicing!
