i think that is totally normal, even for people who are not big.

That’s annoying! 

I know for underarm wetness CertainDri roll-on works wonders.  But sometimes I debate how good it is for you…

I don’t know… I’d suggest maybe going to a dermatologist for some suggestions.

Maybe try adding additional cool down to his workout? Maybe an extra 5-10 minutes to bring his heart rate down and get the blood flowing at a normal pace.

It’s not his build, because i’m small and have the same problem! what works best for me is to do a lengthened cooldown after a run, then when i get home, i eat and do other stuff for about 20 minutes before i hop in the shower.  then, by the time i get in the shower, my body has cooled enough that i dont have this problem.

it sucks, because it takes more time, but I simply cant shower and get dressed immediately after a workout.  I end up waking up a few minutes earlier to counteract the time i “waste” after my workout.  not showering right away is the single most helpful thing for me, i’ve found.

I would suggest a cool shower or longer cool down. If I run in the morning, then take a hot shower right afterwards, I sweat the entire time I’m getting ready and on my way to work. His body is still very warm, that’s all.

I sweat for a good 20-30 minutes after working out strenuously. I do a longer cool down, come home, get nekkid, eat my breakfast, pack my lunch, choose my clothes.. etc, and then shower as my last morning activity.  Basically I have to wait until my internal temperature has cooled down or I’ll still be hot after my shower.

I would also recommend Certain Dri… seriously… AMAZING! I will admit that I’ve had sweating problems in the past and this made it clear up!

This reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where George was complaining that his post work out shower “didn’t take” (he kept sweating) and Kramer told him he needed to take cold showers rather than warm ones.  I don’t have anything productive to add, just that 😉

I’ll third the Certain Dri (it’s actually my grandfather’s product so he’d LOVE you all who say it works). But it really does work. I actually just spoke to him regarding this issue and he said you can apply it anywhere to your body (and many users do-hands, arms, feet, etc). He said to avoid the eye area and cuts. Also just be sure to use it at night or NOT after a recent shower (your pores need to be closed as to avoid the burn) or use the AM product which won’t cause the burning and can be used after showering.

I’d give it a try for a week or so and see what he thinks! If he continues to have issues feel free to contact me and I’ll pass it on to my grandfather. I’m actually using now to avoid a sweaty wedding day mess. Laughing
