Personally, yes. If I'm not sweating during my workout, I am either being lazy or I have a severe medical problem (which would be cause for panic).
I had a psych medication once that warned of "could prevent sweating" as a possible side effect, so I couldn't exercise while I was on it. No sweating means overheating, and I am already extremely sensitive to the heat as it is. Needless to say, I stopped taking that med very quickly.
yes. i've never had a good workout that didn't make me sweat. when your body heats up your very first physiological response is to sweat to cool off. if you're body temp doesn't rise enough to make you sweat, then your muscles aren't working hard enough to get much benefit. i'm not saying that you have to be pouring sweat, but if you're not sweating at all then either your not working hard or you're dehydrated, and thats pretty terrible.
yes I do. Naturally, I don't sweat a lot no matter how hot it is. When I sweat a bit, I know I'm working hard. I save yoga/pilates/easy shit for days off. When I do a full body workout I want to work hard and feel it the next day.
I'm not sure... I'd have to do some research on this. When I saw the title in my universal inbox I thought you were going to tell us the answer... I do sweat when I exercise and my heart pounds a lot and I reckon these are sure signs you are burning energy.
I know you really don't need to be sweating to get a good workout, but I feel like I'm doing more for my body if I am actually sweating. Like I feel if I finish a workout and I'm not sweating, then I didn't workout long enough or hard enough.
lol some people sweat, and some don't. When you swim, you don't notice the sweat, but you can still have a very effective workout. :D
Personally, I don't sweat very much, but I wish I did! I went to the gym with my friend on Wednesday, and after an hour of running (me at level 13 and she at level 1), her clothes were drenched, but mine were barely wet. -____-
