Many exercisers pose the question, “If I sweat too much, does it mean I’m out of shape?”
Sweating is one of the most important things that the body produces every day. There is a misconception that sweating a lot while exercising is a sign of an out-of-shape person, when in truth many beginner exercisers sweat less than more seasoned athletes because their bodies are not as adept at cooling itself off.
Sweat is about 95 percent water and when bodies sweat, water levels decrease, making it extremely important to stay hydrated during workouts. Some people require more water than others, depending on weight and height – a good standard to follow: for every 15 minutes of working out, exercisers should drink four to six ounces of water.
