Did You Know?
Your body doesn’t just cool off through sweating.
Ever wonder why you often get red in the face during exercise? That’s because your body also transfers blood to the skin to regulate temperature. “Once you start exercising, your body shifts blood to the working muscles because that’s the higher priority where oxygen is needed. It also shifts it to the skin to release heat
Body type is the biggest factor in how much you sweat.
If you’re trying to understand what body type could possibly have to do with sweat, think of a cup of coffee. “If a coffee is half full, it will cool much faster than a full cup. We thought that those principles might apply to sweat, and sure enough, in this research, i found that larger individuals, whose bodies have a lower surface-area-to-volume ratio, tend to sweat more in order to release heat.
Note: the biggest factor in how much you sweat is going to be how hard you’re working. The greater our exertion, the greater the increase in body temperature and the greater the sweat rate.
