i was on the swim team and you do get a very tuff workout believe it or not.. so i would say you do sweat.. especially when you are swimming in a heated pool, the sun is beating down at you, and you are doing all those sets.

Yes, you do sweat, as you do in any other sport. My swim coach wouldn't let me eat any chips before swimming because it stops you from sweating. Which is actually pretty gross, because it means that you are in fact, swimming in a pool of sweat.

yes, you do sweat - that is one of the reasons why a pools temperature is regulated, so that you don't overheat while exercising

No, you don't sweat when swimming. I believe this is a reason why swimming is not a good weight losing excercise.
18 yrs ago - Monday 8/12/02 - 7:34:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
LOL! Actually, swimming is considered to be one of the sports where your whole body is being exercised (real word?).
18 yrs ago - Monday 8/12/02 - 7:35:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, it's good for muscles, but you don't actually lose weight easily when swimming.

the world may never know.

I used to be a competative swimmer and quite a few of the best swimmers in the club were pretty roly-poly, despite training for hours every day.

Scientists speculate that you burn less fat and more glucose and that water keeps your body temperature and heart rate somewhat lower than do land-based workouts, thus it is not good for weight loss, but you do sweat if your body gets too hot...

Campbell: Perhaps, but you'd have to be working very hard.
18 yrs ago - Monday 8/12/02 - 7:43:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
or the water is too hot...
18 yrs ago - Monday 8/12/02 - 8:11:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can't think of any swimming facility/location that would be hot enough to make you sweat though. Is there such a place?

You can just tell if you're sweating, swimming or not
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 8/18/02 - 8:13:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Kaneda, try the sea - not the North Sea, but the Med Sea - has been 26°C this summer and was hotter last year...

You definitely sweat, unless the water is really cold.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 8/18/02 - 9:53:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes you sweat. Just becuase you're in water doesn't change how your body reacts when you work out
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 8/19/02 - 12:39:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes You definitley do sweat. After tough workouts, you're huffing and puffing and red and sweaty just like with any other sport.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 9/22/02 - 11:05:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
of course u do. u feel it whether u see it or not
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 9/22/02 - 11:08:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
You really don't sweat when swimming, not unless you're swimming in very warm water, but that type of water wouldn't be good for excercising in.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 9/22/02 - 11:12:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, you don't sweat when you're swimming because--> the reason why you sweat is to exhaust excess heat your body generates, and if you're in cool water, it absorbs the excess heat. You can sweat if you're swimming in really warm water though :)

You sweat but you just don't realise it.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 3/13/04 - 9:04:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
you deffinetley sweat. At swimming we swim 5-6 miles every practice everyday of the week M-Sund and our faces get blood red from working so hard nonstop for 3 hours. You get so tired you arms and whole upper body is glowing. Don't tell me you can't sweat in water
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 3/13/04 - 9:20:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Kaneda is right... swimming doesn't make you lose weight, really. But it does help build muscle.

It's also good for your heart.

You might sweat a little, but not nearly as much as if you're running or doing some other out-of-water sport.
