    Not sweating much - is there something wrong?


    As I get older (45 years now), I seem to be sweating less or it takes more intensity than it used to get sweating - I mean I have to have my heart rate at a least 170 plus for at least 10 minutes to invoke a light sweat. What is the deal with that? Is there something wrong with me (I feel fine)?

    53 here. I get the heart rate up to 160s and no significant sweating. Make sure you are properly hydrated as we all tend to not drink enough water. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it.

    I agree...probably a little de-hydrated...try drinking some more during the day, and pre work out.

    I drink tons of fluids. Hydration is not a concern...
