8 Trendy Workouts (Ranked on the Sweat-O-Meter Scale)
Sometimes you want to walk out of the gym drenched in sweat, and sometimes you want to keep that spendy blowout intact. That's where this sweat-o-meter comes in
For me -- and for so many women I know -- it's all about whether or not you have to wash your hair. Here's the simple logic: I don't want to wash my hair on consecutive days, and sweaty workouts necessitate hair washing. Therefore, I can only participate in sweaty workouts every other day. Makes sense, right?
So I developed this sweat-o-meter scale. It's a simple one to 10 measurement of a workout's sweat level, where one is barely a glisten and 10 is I-look-like-I-fell-in-a-pool drenched. If a workout scores higher than a five, you'll probably need to shampoo.
Skip ahead to see where the trendiest new workouts fall on the sweaty workout scale.
