I don't think that drinking more water would cause you to sweat more, but if your diet has been particularly poor your body might use your sweat to help expel toxins, which may lead to more sweat.

Also, primarily your body sweats to regulate temperature, so if your gym or practice space is a little warmer than your house or workplace then you will sweat more there.

Don't think that really answers any question though.

YESSSSSSS. Best news I've heard all week :lol: even when I am at my fittest I am the sweatiest person ever. Fact. Nobody that isn't new needs to know this because it's been all I talk about at practice for the past 3.5 years.

you can't be as sweaty as me and that is a fact. I am a grotesque, sweaty, salt-beast. even though I eat salty stuff all the time.
Don't dream it - be it.

I might actually try it out.
Crazy, I thought this might be the case as well, but since cutting my hair I have actually started *dripping* sweat, which was previously kind of soaked up by my hair. And it's made no difference to how hot I get because there's always the helmet insulation anyway.

Hmmmmmmmm drippy sweat.

This is why I wear a bandana under my helmet, so I can soak up the sweat before it drips off the tip of my hair :badbanana:

I can attest to this too. When my hair's a bit longer, the sweat sometimes goes in my ears (it is as horrible as it sounds) but with short hair it seams to just drip out of my helmet more. I love the 'lean over' effect where after picking something up, you leave a little puddle of sweat from your helmet.

Derby is so gross but I love it, haha x

haha oh God this is horrible but fascinating!

My best achievement was when I bouted against GRD with the flu and at the end it looked like I had just got out of a swimming pool - literally rung out my plaits on the floor and I swear I could have filled a pint glass with sweat from them :gbanana:
