A Little Sweat Does You Good…

Last Tuesday, I enjoyed my usual routine. this routine entails working through my lunch then making my way down to my office tower’s gymnasium to make use of their cardio machines. Last year, I found a neoprene hoodie in the clearance section of a local sporting equipment retail shop. The tag boasted increasing the body’s core temperature to shed excess water weight and maintain muscle warmth. I purchased my size online and received it a short while later, performing multiple cardio workouts and loving the increased sweat and burn I got from wearing it.

The concept is pretty simple; the garment increases your core temp, causing excess sweating and shedding water weight as well as an increased level of toxin elimination. On this occasion, I ran the elliptical until I started feeling faint. The beauty of this garment is it kind of holds everything in place and prevents all 2,000 parts of my dad-bod from joggling around violently as I run. I only put in 4 kilometres but it was enough of a sweat to tire me out for the night. The increased blood flow brought on from doing cardio work also allows for quicker recovery when taking a break from resistance training.

This garment was a bit on the costly side, having been ordered online from a discontinued product line. But you can find them quite easily in most sporting goods stores, as well as from your local big box retail locations. They won’t all fit snuggly like mine does. In fact, some of them will almost seem like you’re wearing a couple of large garbage bags over your body. But the benefits can be plentiful, so long as you remember to replenish your body’s fluids as you lose them. ☯️
