If it's worth doing, it's worth OVER doing.

The"Outwork" mindset changed my entire life, perhaps it can help you as well

I sweat a lot when I workout - during my 45 minute sessions I consume half a gallon of water, and I see other people not consume any liquid during their workouts!? I can't understand that - but i guess since I keep feeding my body water every few minutes it just keeps sweating.'living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down'

What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life.
Sweating is embarrassing, it stains clothes, ruins romance, and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands.
What is the cause of hyperhidrosis?
Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all the time, regardless of their mood or the weather.
What is the treatment for hyperhidrosis?
Through a systematic evaluation of causes and triggers of excessive sweating, followed by a judicious, stepwise approach to treatment, many people with this annoying disorder can achieve good results and improved quality of life.
The approach to treating hyperhidrosis generally proceeds as follows:
Over-the-counter antiperspirants -- usually tried first because they are readily available. Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride (for example, Certain-Dri) may be more effective when other antiperspirants have failed
Prescription strength antiperspirants -- those containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate
Iontophoresis -- a device which passes direct electricity through the skin using tap water
Oral medications -- ones called anticholinergics which reduce sweating
Botox (botulinum toxin) -- recently approved in the U.S. by the FDA for treating excessive axillary (underarm) sweating
Surgery -- cervical sympathectomy, as a last resort
