I notice that, when lifting, I either don't sweat at all, or sweat very little at times. When doing cardio though, I sweat buckets!
Does this mean I'm not pushing myself hard enough?
I don't sweat much when doing weight lifting either, but I like you do when I am doing cardio. I have always thought is was because lifting doesn't raise your heart rate as much as cardio. I would like to hear what others think as well.
But to answer your question about what it all means...I have no idea
I think I may be resting too long between sets. Maybe I should start carrying a timer.
I sort of do circuit training and i sweat a ton, i think its the rest breaks or lack there of that do it.
I have to admit people do look at me funny when everyone else is having a rest bettween sets, there i am doing pushups haha.
I'm a sweating type of person anyways, even when doing nothing. I definitely sweat when lifting- I think I'm going to get a pair of gloves 'cause that bar gets pretty slippery at times! Not good! :D
I sweat a river when lifting weights...ohoooo speaking of lifting I should go back to it sometime this weekend or the following Monday :)
I sweat when lifting, but not as much as during cardio. I think it's partly because I've being doing a lot of cardio for a long time, so my body recognizes that I'm going into that mode sooner, and the sweat starts gushing, lol. I've only been really lifting for about two months, and initially I didn't sweat as much as I do now, and I think was working about as hard, although lifting lighter weights.
Sometimes I do sometimes I don't - it depends on the room condition and how much water I've consumed prior to going to the gym. If I drink extra water I sweat more. The level of activity has no effect really for me its just whether I have the extra water in the system to give up I guess.
this is a good question to see ppl's responses too. personally, i always sweat lifting. but i definitely sweat more when i'm doing more volume, like if it's more about pumping up my heart rate w/complexes and whatnot v. single lift sets. but like i can do three reps of single legs squats and totally start perspiring.
i never feel like i am getting a good workout unless there's some sweating involved. last night i did lifting, i sweated (altho not that much) & my heart was definately pounding & that was just doing upper body.
I sweat a lot a lot!
idk, When I first started lifting I didn't sweat but I knew I was really working it out bc the next day the area was sore as all heck!
Now? Well now I sweat when I lift (pretty much stayed at around the same amount of lifting too, maybe 15lbs more on the hammies/glutes now). But I work up a pretty good sweat. I also do not feel sore very much anymore. lol... I think I just realized I need to up my weights. lol....
just got back from sweating at the gym, & on my hrm, i went up to 160+ bpm at times of lifting so i know im working my body. altho it could've been a bit higher this time because of my stupid inhaler.
