The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sweaty hands

    In the gym it can be negated by chalk but in every day occurrences it's frustrating. My laptop is always coated in slimy sweat. I've been seeing this girl lately and on top of her complaining about my calluses she thinks my sweaty hands are gross.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Is this a constant thing or does it only happen every so often?

    Constant. It's an exception when they're dry. Either their cold and sweaty or warm and sweaty. Clammy, if you will.

    Any of your family members have the same problem?
    How long have you noticed it? Have you had it since you were a little kid, or has it developed since a certain time?
    Consulting your physician is probably the best approach if it bothers you enough.

    I have the same problem. Aside from shaking someones hand I usually don't hear much about it. Most people just shake my hand without saying anything but my family members/friends are very vocal about it.

    This past year its gotten much better. I don't know why....but it still happens sometimes.

    Weightlifting has helped it ALOT though.

    Thanks for the link, although it's doubtful I'll ever resort to surgery even though it's arguably a minimally invasive form.

    I've noticed it for about 4-5 years now. I can't remember if I had it as a kid but I do remember having cold hands as a kid.

    That's kind of funny. My family notices it too but the ladies especially.

    Tell me about it. It's essentially rendering my touch-pad useless as I type this. There is a pool of sweat on the keyboard. (Stop laughing)

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I hadn't realized it until I read the last line of Jordan's post, but weightlifting really has helped a lot. Still there, but much better since I've been lifting on a regular basis.

    Same deal here with the shweaty paws...one word man...drysol! Its just a heavy duty antipersperiant that is actually designed for treating sweaty mitts (hyperhydrosis if you want the medical term). Use this on your hands at night (intially once a week...then you can prolly drop down to once a month) and you'll have no more sweaty troubles.

    Worked like a charm for me...over the counter drug stores sell it, give her a try...a quick cheap fix that worked wonders for me!

    You know, I've heard wonderful things about Drysol for armpits, too. I hear you slap that stuff on and can't sweat at all the next day - any truth to that? You can't buy it in the states over the counter, IIRC.

    Duly noted. Dude, thanks. I'll give it a shot.

    Excessively sweaty palms, feet, and underarms are problems for me too. What sort of doctor would I approach to get a prescription for this Drysol stuff?

    Either your primary care or a dermatologist.

    McIrish,
    Definatly true. If I throw it on my hands I actually cant sweat for the next day or so. I put it on really light now...you wouldnt believe how uncomfotable it is not to sweat on your hands at all!

    Mr. _____,
    Over the counter....no need for a prescription. Talk to the person behind the counter at your drug store.

    Definitely go with Drysol. It's amazing how well it works. After one application you can tell the difference. It was actually a weird feeling at first. The day after I first used it, I was at work and I was really hot and sweaty from doing a bunch of odd jobs outside, and so I assumed I would have my trade-mark pit stains, and yet there was nothing there. The rest of my body was sweaty, but I felt under my armpits and there wasn't even a drop. The stuff is awesome.

    Yeah, drysol definatly works for the pits but personally I have only had limited success with it on my hands.

    I think half of my problem is anxiety though. If I go to church (which I don't anymore, just christmas, etc.) where i know that i will be shaking hands my hands turn into faucets. It's pretty disgusting acctually, I can't even look at people when I shake their hand.

    I almost like to go through the surgery but I've heard that it causes many complications (however I have no idea what they are).

    I've got the exact same problem. My hands are sweaty all the time. The only real annoyance I have with it is shaking hands. My friends constantly complain about how discusting it is to shake hands with me. I guess I could try that Drysol stuff.

    It's in the nerves. That's why sympathecomy (cutting of the nerves supplying the sweat glands) and botox is effective.
