    but why the hell does my sweaty shirt have a strong odor of ammonia?
    i've been noticing this for a couple days now.
    after sweating like crazy at the gym, i get home and throw the clothes into the hamper.
    when i'm ready to wash a load of clothes say about 1 - 2 hours from the time i took my gym gear off the shirt has a pretty strong scent of ammonia.

    eek, you worked out so hard that your bladder is increased in size and taken over your sweat glandes.. its no longer sweat, it's urine!

    Sweating (also called perspiration or sometimes transpiration) is the loss of a watery fluid, consisting mainly of sodium chloride (commonly known as salt) and urea in solution, that is secreted by the sweat glands in the skin of mammals. Sweat also consist of the chemicals or odorants 2-methylphenol and 4-methylphenol.

    sweat once dried will smell very stingy and strong like amonia does.


    I don't think you've got any problems.

    many people who i confront about this are telling me that's a good thing.
    i dunno about that.
    it doesn't really happen when i'm not working out.
    i'm not overweight.

    teh mighty ceaze has spoken. :eek3: :bowdown:
    wait...you're not ceaze, you used wiki, you cheated. :squint:

    thanks btw, now to find someone who can translate this shit into english. :o

    how can i prevent the intense sweating?
    my gym apparrel is fairly light and well ventilated.
    i bring one of those half gallon jugs of ice water to the gym all the time.
    i could literally take off my shirt and wring out at least 1/4 gallon of sweat.

    Slow down the work outs, when I work out slow little sweat. When I tear through them I am very very sweaty.

    I sweat a ton no matter what, it's just part of the territory. As far as I can tell there really is no reason to be afraid of sweating, unless you are ruining a marathon in which case you need to drink an electrolyte containing beverage instead of just water.

    it's not that.
    i think my workouts take took too long.
    i take longer breaks than the average person.
    at times i do get caught up chit chatting w/ the ladies either between sets or exercises.
    my set are fairly slow and controlled.

    there is a condition where you can sweat more than normal people do, a woman I work with has it and at any given time she can lift her arm up and show you a sweat stain on her armpit. Ask your doctor about it, if you have it they have treatments, but I dont know much beyond that.

    Ketoacidosis will produce a sour amonia type smell if your on a no carb or very low carb diet, happens when you body starts running on keytones in place of glycemics.

    I get the same weird odor when I no carb it for prolonged periods of time.
