Does more sweating mean a more intense workout?

( CNN) For some people, summer is the time to manager indoors to activity. But others welcome the hot as a space to sweat more and get a better workout.

Indeed, I’ve long considered the sweatiness of my exercising hearings as a sign to seeing how hard I was pushing myself. But it turns out I’ve been incorrect: How much you sweat doesn’t necessarily correlate with how intense your workout is or how many calories you burn.

When your body temperature rises, your eccrine glands secrete sweat, and the vapor of humidity from your surface is contributing to cool off. Of track, sweating can occur for other reasons, such as stress or panic.
