Find Out: Why some people sweat more than others
I always wonder that why my friend sweat more than me, though I always do a lot of cardio and running things. In this article, we will try to figure out how some people sweat more than others. Just spouse you are in an air-conditioned room and everyone is looking fresh but your armpits are soggy and you don’t like the way your body smells, so you avoid proximity. Sounds familiar? Sweating a lot can be a big bummer if you want to look neat, clean and dry. And if your sweat stinks more than most, the matter gets worse. All this happens besides the fact that you are slim and indulge in moderate activity.
The Traditional Thoughts
Traditionally, people have associated more sweating to having a higher body fat percentage and less sweating to a higher level of aerobic activity. However, a recent study at American College of Sports Medicine presented some results which contradicted the traditional ideas.
BODY FAT AND AEROBIC ACTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH OTHER FACTORS:
Though the traditional generalized rule may apply in many cases, there are many other factors which are associated to one’s body fat percentage and aerobic fitness which also play a keen role in determining how much you sweat.
MORE BODY FAT MEANS MORE WEIGHT
If you have a higher body fat percentage, it sure means that your body weighs more. Now, your body will have higher insular properties which may result in more sweating. This is what the traditional insight is. However, more body fat also means more body mass and this could also be the leading factor for more sweat production, and not the insular property of fat.
28 volunteers participated in a study and they were all very different in their physical attributes. They all were put through 60 minutes of cycling at different intensities while their bodily changes and sweat rates were measured.
