  • The pool is my "go to" place~ my Zen, my bliss~ - 11/20/2016 12:43:10 PM
  • Thinking about moving makes me sweat, I don't have to be out of breath or exerting myself in anyway, I swept the kitchen floor the other day and it was pouring off me. As a tip (assuming you don't have sensitive skin or any kind of skin condition) you can put anti-perspirant deodorant on your face (just a tiny bit) and it'll help. Obv a separate one from your daily deo though! - 7/5/2016 1:22:34 PM
  • I *definitely* sweat in the pool. To the point where even after a cool down and a shower, I'm still often sweating.

    But that said, I also swim between two and three miles in 60-90 minutes, so it's definitely dependent on your level of exertion. - 11/21/2015 5:46:30 PM
  • I sweat doing all of these - including swimming laps. If you don't think you sweat swimming, think again. - 8/6/2015 10:49:37 AM
  • If you do any of these activities (exercises) you're going to sweat. The question is how much? - 8/6/2015 10:19:15 AM
  • Folks who live in the south sweat without any workout involved. . . . - 7/3/2015 8:09:27 AM
  • Maybe certified fitness trainers don't sweat during most of the exercises listed, but for those of us still trying to get in shape, let alone in GOOD shape, they're definitely perspiration inducing.

    Here's to pools, fans, & air conditioning. - 6/14/2015 2:06:03 PM
  • I sweat during most of these-- even things like yoga-- holding downward dog for more than 20 seconds causes me to (lightly) sweat. - 3/13/2015 8:46:53 AM
  • Walking totally leads to sweat. And it's kind of funny cleaning your house/apartment is on here when it's not like we can track that.

    But then, I don't mind sweating. - 3/12/2015 11:57:38 AM
  • I do not mind sweating while I am doing a workout. Love swimming it is good excerise for the entire body to :) - 8/25/2014 1:49:49 PM
    Three years ago I could not swim at all. My husband worked with me and showed me that if I blew air out while under water I would be able to swim as he thought I had a good stroke. With some practice I now swim a mile 2 to 3 times a week. I do find doing laps relaxing and enjoy the water. I do not swim fast (a mile in 1 hr and 20 minutes) but find a rythym and keep going. Like so many I cannot run anymore after neck and back surgery and of course sore knees. I learned to swim at 59 so it is never too late. - 8/17/2014 10:25:50 AM
    Doing housework is definitely a big work-out especially for big girls like me.
    I find it's a work-out I can stick to consistently: cleaning the bathroom, cooking (standing in a hot kitchen for more than an hour makes me sweat!) and washing dishes, vacuuming, dusting, and rearranging furniture.

    Thanks for the good advice, sparkpeople. - 8/13/2014 6:16:01 PM
  • Are you kidding me? I walk every day at lunch at work & come back a red & sweaty mess. I have to bring "gym" clothes so I am presentable about 1/2 hr after my walk. Walking can be a work-out... maybe you're talking about taking a leisurely stroll? That's activity, not exercise.
    And... you do sweat swimming... it's just that you don't notice it b/c you're in a pool (of everyone else's sweat... Ew. Now that I put it that way... Ew.) - 6/4/2014 8:49:55 PM
  • Anyone who thinks you can walk as quickly as recommended and not sweat hasn't tried it. I tend to be warm and sweat easily. I walk regularly with a friend who tends more toward being cold. We don't amble but we're not fast, and after about a mile we're both sweating, even during the winter. - 6/3/2014 7:53:15 AM
    When ever I have worked out intensely I have turned red but I really don't sweat. Put me in the summer sun doing garden work and my neighbors threaten to call the Environmental Protection Agency because of the sweat and smell polluting the environment. - 6/2/2014 2:51:36 PM
