Sweat Rate

1. Before you leave the house for a workout, without any clothes on, weight yourself on your scales, write it down.

2. Go for your workout, when you return, immediately take off your clothes, and weigh again. Write this number down, and then subtract your weightAFTERyou trained from your weight BEFORE you trained. The resulting number is your Sweat Rate.

Remember, this should be done on a regular training session, not a new one you are just trying out. You want to check your Sweat Rate when your training workout is one of your regularly ones. Your body does react differently from several variables. Some of these are as follows:

· humidity

· temperature

· body weight

· intensity, RPE, HR

· windy day or no winds

· if you eat something different in the last few days, that has more

· sodium than usual in it

· training in a valley, downtown with lots of tall buildings

· training on cement, black top, and/or grass, sand
