The Gym Chronicles – Part 3 “Butt, Sweat, and Tears

I love sweat. It’s my favorite part of going to the gym. I welcome it. I revel in it.

The new workout clothing is designed with a “wicking” material that is supposed to wick the sweat away from your body making it evaporate easier. The result is that after a tough workout, you don’t have those sweat marks on your shirt. Some people still wear cotton shirts to work out in. Gray cotton shirts are the best for showing sweat marks on men and women alike.

So at my gym, you are asked to wipe down the equipment after you use it. They have spray bottles filled with a mild disinfectant and paper towels. I would say that 100% of the women wipe down the equipment and about 70% of the guys. Some guys are just too darn cool to wipe down a piece of equipment. They are usually the guys who work out in wife beaters.

My gym routine starts with 35-40 minutes on the treadmill then I work 30 minutes on the weight machines. I think that my biggest surprise I have had is how much my butt sweats. You should see the sweaty wet spot that my butt leaves on the seat of the weight machines. It’s rather embarrassing. This butt sweat puddle has to be cleaned before I move on. I can’t be the only one. So I also wipe the seat before I use the equipment just in case the previous user left their mark.

I don’t want to mix my butt sweat with one of those guys in wife beater t-shirts.
