Sweat, Baby, Sweat

Bloodhound Gang may have been on to something when they wrote this song—at least with the sweating part, that is. A  study in Experimental Physiology says that men are more efficient than women at sweating when they workout, thanks to more testosterone, which increases perspiration.  Think the guy sweating bullets on the treadmill next to you is way out of shape? Not so much. The more fit you are, the better your body becomes at sweating (and the more of it you do).  It’s your body’s way of cooling you down during a tough workout.

If you find yourself feeling self-conscious about  getting hot ‘n heavy at the gym, don one of  these bad boys and become a fashionable sweater. ViewSport’s shirts use “sweat activated technology” to reveal a hidden message that only shows up when you sweat and get it wet.  They can even be custom designed for sports teams! While you can’t get these shirts at the SU Bookstore just yet, they are coming out soon!
