Sweat is absolutely good for maintaining ideal Body temperature and it’s not the Fat that is melting away.

Dont laugh .. But some people do claim that .

Tell me by crossing your heart …
How many of you think that More sweat while exercising means more fat loss .. This is so not true . You will be surprised but There are actually some exercise programmes designed to be done at elevated room temp .. But they are more harmful with more chances of dehydration than weight loss which actually is a water loss .
See .. sweating is a body’s mechanism to maintain body temperature . When  you are working out some heat is produced in the body  which raises Body Temperature. This is again brought back to normal by the body through cooling out with sweat . So sweat is not the fat that is melting away .. More sweating is not the Fat melting away .Ya ya ..

Fat is lost only when it is used up as an energy source during Cardio exercise as I have already told you in classic Aerobics

Ideally while one is working out in his or her heart rate zone they will start sweating . But one has to listen to the body also . Too much sweat and discomfort are not good signs which will be seen if one is working out beyond requisite Heart rate Zone . It can be dangerous .Keeping this in mind Ideal workout place should be open  space with good ventilation . One should be able to cool off easily .

Sometimes you notice that a person working out next to you  is completely drenched in sweat and you are barely sweating . No .. no .. It does not mean that the other person is exercising better and loosing more fat ( In fact Fat is not lost at all )  n you are not … As long as your heart rate  zone is maintained you are also getting good exercise . Sweating more or less is completely genetic n Gender Dependent . Each one has around Two to Four Million Sweat glands . They are more active in males than in Females .   It will also depend on how much sweat is produced by each gland . Also a sedentary person will sweat out quicker than an active person .If the workout place is already saturated with heat ,Heat Dissipation will be difficult.Fat n obese people are usually seen to be sweating more as they have to put in more effort in the same task . . Thus sweating is not the only indicator of good workout .
When you sweat you are loosing water and electrolytes from body. Therefore one must continuously replenish it to get an optimal workout output. your weight should not drop immediately after workout as it will show that you have not had enough water during exercise n loss seen on weighing scale is actually a water loss not weight loss .
Remember that Sweat when you hog down extra calories .. Sweat it out  in your ideal Heart Rate Zone , drink loads of water while exercising and get Fat Loss by proper Cardio exercises .


Happy Sweating 🙂
