Sweat

They say that when you work out, you don’t perspire; YOU GLOW! But let’s face it – nobody likes to sweat or see others sweat. But again, there’s no escaping it.

Since you are in a social setting, whether in a common gym, group class or with your personal trainer, there is a certain social protocol that you need to follow so as to not cause inconvenience to others.

Hydration

There’s one mantra that everyone swears by – STAY HYDRATED. With 60% (approx.) of our body being water, humans are walking, talking, breathing water bodies.

It is when you’re dehydrated that you start feeling sick / down.  One activity when your body is prone to excessive dehydration is Workout. And hence, I cannot emphasize enough about the need to hydrate when you exercise.
