Lot's and lot's of variation in warm-up exercises - length, intensity and the exercises themselves.

Our warm-up is really just stretches and a couple breathing exercises, so my answer was no, I am not sweating after warm-ups. Once in a great while, the instructor has us do some rolls or something....but even then, nope.

Then again, one of the guys asked me the other day during class, "Don't you ever sweat?"

Heh. I'm sweating on the inside? ;)

Eh, I sweat, but only after I get a really hard warm-up.... but I must say, I can get really sweaty during class. ^_^

Everyone is sweating as soon as they bow onto the tatami at the Jiyushinkan... we live in Tempe, Arizona.

Try doing aikido in an equatorial country like Singopore or Malaysia. You sweat by the buckets. I usually am soaking wet even after the warm up.

Our warm-ups consist of a combination of yoga exercises to build strength and lung power and standard Aikido warm-ups to prepare your body for practice.

In our dojo, it sometimes varies depending on who's leading the warmups. (but now just comming into the dojo makes me sweat. Japanese summers aren't fun :yuck: )

Can't find the vote button:( , but absolutely do. Whether it's a gentle stretch, a full jump around, I sweat buckets, but not nearly as much as I did when I was in Japan. I used to sweat of anything between 1 and 2 kilos in a single training session!

I seem to sweat a lot when I get some aerobic exercise but I wonder if sweating and feeling warm is a good indication that your muscles are "warm" (and relaxed and stretched and flexible)? I require aerobic, conditioning and stretching exercises in my warmups.

Does anybody else sweat from concentrating? Even if I'm totally still but concentrating intently on something I'll break out in a heavy sweat :yuck:
