View Full Version : My body has trouble sweating while exercising?..
07-22-2009, 04:26 PM
Ok, so here's the deal. I know sweating is a great toxin release especially while exercising. But it seems to be very hard for my body to break a sweat, yet after I do I feel so much better. So what's the deal? Even when I physically exhaust myself doing things like Squats and Jogging, I don't sweat. Obviously not something to be concerned about (at least I assume), but I WANT to sweat, it feels so much better! lol! Any advise on techniques to try or, well, anything? Oh, but things like playing Aerobe and biking do cause my body to break a sweat.
I'm not entirely sure what I'm asking for here, but I thought I'd give it a shot and see if anyone here has any kind of answer/thoughts. Cuz it really feels uncomfortable when I don't sweat while exercising...

What is your sodium intake like? Salt makes your body hold onto water. Maybe play around with that and see if that changes anything?

Oh okay thanks. I don't consume a lot of salt in particular that I know of, but I'll be more aware of it from now on....Although on second thought, I do add salt to a lot of stuff without even thinking about it :o ;) whenever i have honey on something the salt comes out, on salads, on avocado n cucumber, with... so, pretty much everything I eat LOL. Hmmm okay yeah that really helps me. Thanks hon!!

I think you could appreciate it - you can work out at the lunch break and not to be stinky the rest of the day.

It just takes you longer to build a Fire, some people sweat climbing Stairs. You have to add More Wood (arobic exercise) to your Fire to stroke it and get it Burning.

i don't sweat much either. I also don't own any salt in the house at all. I don't add it to any foods I eat ever, and eat 50% raw at least, with the other 50% usually consisting of very little meats and mostly veggies or grilled fruits.
So my "added" salt intake is basically zero. I haven't eaten anything from a box (except pasta pre-cooked) in years.
It may not be your salt intake. You just may be lucky. I rarely sweat enough to make a t-shirt wet. I can hit the weights for 90 minutes hard, then jump on the treadmill for 20 minutes at 6mph and be guzzling water the whole time I'm at the gym and literally I'm dry.
I am EXTREMELY happy I have this defect.
My g/f is usually commenting on this every week about how pissed she is that I never smell or sweat much even after busting my a88 at the gym. haha I love it!

haha yeah of course it's NICE to not sweat much, but at the same time... toxin release! Oh well, maybe sweating isn't MY body's way of detoxing... I'm still gonna try to limit my salt intake though.
-Yeah I love all the fairly easy access mountains there are to hike here in Eugene! Mt June is my fav workout hike. Spencer's is a nice when I want a fairly laid back hike, too.

BIKRAM YOGA !!!!!
If you don't sweat doing that ... You might want to worry and start looking into that.......

I'm not sure if you're taking any sort of medication for physical ailments or disease, etc, however I do know that some medications make it very hard for people to sweat no matter how hot they get. This is a side effect can be found in some glucose control, anticonvulsants and mood suppressor/elevator medications. You might want to check the labels of anything you may be consuming over the counter as well.

Sounds like you need to drink A LOT more water! I'm from the desert so i know that you don't sweat when you're not hydrated because your body needs to use all the water.

I'm not a big sweat-er either! It takes a TON for me to sweat. I've always been that way. I'm much like you where I could go for a run do weights & nothin!
I'm 100% raw, I do both weights & cardio & hardly add any salt to my food & drink plenty of water.... I just believe some people are this way, so no worries
It's a good thing skin isn't the only way we release toxins!!!
I do not sweat very easily either. I find over heat fast outdoors and during exercise. I am not sure why. I do not add any salt to my food. Except for recipes. Even then I am careful. So I know salt isn't the culprit:confused:/
