    I don't know whether it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I am sick of this shit. I just got back from the gym and I'm drenched liek I went swimming - this was only a 35 minute workout. I work outside and sweat up a storm too, obviously it's going to happen in florida heat and humidity, but it's beyond excessive. any ideas?

    I need a solution as well. I sweat profusely even when I'm not doing anything. I'll just be sitting somewhere and I'll feel the sweat drip down my back or drip down from my armpits. It sucks, my shirts always get soaked where my armpits are.

    All of a sudden my deodorant just stopped working, then I switched to a diff one and it worked for like 3 days then stopped again.

    I don't know wtf to do.

    I feel you man. Especially with women I'm just done for. I always wear undershirts now and they just absorb the sweat and the outer shirt stays nice and dry with no pit stays. Deodorant always fails too.

    i switched over to the 'clinical strength' anti-perspirants. they use 20% of the active ingredient instead of 17.8% like most other forumulas. if this doesn't work for you, you need to get something stronger prescribed by the doctor.

    the gilette 'clinical strength' anti-perspirant works about 90% of the time for me whereas regular ones like Right Guard or Axe i would sweat even when playing a video game.

    Are those the ones you put on before you go to bed and shit?

    I used to use old spice and it worked like a champ but then it just stopped one day, so then I tried the right guard triple action or triple threat whatever the fuck, and it worked for like 3 days and then stopped.

    Fuckin sucks all the sweat pools under my arms and then starts to smell after a little while. :ugh:

    well the label says you should put it on before you go to bed. i did that for a few days and it worked ok. then i just tried putting it on in the morning after a shower like i would normal ap, and it worked just the same.

    I have the opposite problem. I dont sweat very well.

    During tough workouts I feel like im going to burst into flames.

    I constantly have to pour cold water on my head and back to cool off.

    drink more water? I dunno just read that.

    I have the answer for all of you. Certain Dri.

    I used to be a sweaty fuck, I mean a sweaty son of a bitch. When I was yonger id, literally, rot out the pits of my t-shirts. Certain Dri stopped that.

    as far as in the gym, just shower afterwards. really sucks taking a soaked shirt off at the end of an arm day though...:hs:

    edit: oh cunt me. they're making feet pads now, awesome.

    carbs, test, thermogenics and SSRI's tend to do that.

    Something with your body being used to sweating and preparing to cool off more efficiently. I noticed when I was out of the gym for 18 months I didn't sweat as easy now I get drenched doing nothing :hs:
