THE SWEAT RATE TEST
It is important to develop an understanding of your sweat rate so that you can develop a thorough understanding of your sweat losses during an event.
The easiest way to measure your sweat rate is to weigh yourself without clothes on before and after exercising for one hour, taking note of the climatic conditions you were exercising in.
- Weigh yourself without clothes on before you head out to train.
- Conduct one hour of training in as similar conditions to race day as possible. intensity, pace and discipline.
- After one hour, return home, strip down, thoroughly dry your skin and hair, and then weigh yourself again.
