Does Anyone Here Not Sweat?

I know this sounds weird. I have never really sweat in anything. I am capable of sweating, but its very little and usually after running (soccer, hockey…)

My routine is similar to Starting strength - high intensity & low rep.

Is this normal? Im lifting as heavy as I can go, the heart is pumping…

I know a lot of you are going to say lift harder but I go HARD, I just don’t think genetically I was designed to sweat that much.

Some fruits are juicier than others.

Some posts are fruitier than others.

I sweat when I think too hard.

some uhhhh yeah

well anyways, they’re more ummmm then the other thing. yeah.

Is gotta be 1 of 3 things or a combination of all 3.
A: Your not drinking enough water!
B: Rest times are too long! (too much super setting with a hawt ab flex)
or
C: The sand in your vagina is soaking it all up!

I don’t sweat much either. I can wear a t-shirt in a sauna for 30 min and not have it soaked. It’ll be wet, but not soaked. Sucks for cutting weight.

Oh, I knew a guy who couldn’t physically sweat. I forget what the condition is called.

so to cool down did he roll around in mud and feces?

On another note, my gf told me sometimes when I come home from the gym (after sweating) I have a faint skunk smell … anyone else get that?

Maybe a slight funk, but no skunk, Mr. Le Pew.

Could be my cardio … I snake a rabid skunk from its hole, pissing it off, and run from it trying not to get bit or sprayed … doesn’t always work I guess

You’re not alone, OP. I only sweat during the big lifts and cardio. And when I work outside in a place that isn’t Monfuckingtana.

I dunnno, unless you’re having heat regulation problems I really don’t think it’s a big deal. Work harder and see what happens maybe?

As far as people who don’t sweat goes, I know from a bio class a bit ago that some people actually don’t have sweat glands in some of their pores. I know in women it can actually work in a mosaic sort of pattern where some parts of their body have the glands and some do not, as they have two X chromosomes, which allows for the gene that creates the glands to be expressed in some areas where that X chromosome isn’t a Barr body (aka repressed from being expressed). It’s the same mechanism behind calico cats.

lol

It’s called Anhydrosis.

He was allowed to have an air conditioner in his dorm because of his condition. I had one because I’m a rebel. Fight the power.

I sweat so much that I absolutely CANNOT wear sweat pants to the gym.

No explanation necessary.
