  • Your core temperature goes up and takes about a half hour to an hour to drop down again. Supposedly you are still burning calories when it is up. This is why you still sweat after a shower right after you exercise.

  • Now that you mention it, I get wicked hot and sweat after a shower, even a cool one, when I haven't even exercised! I have to keep my towel wrapped around my body and sit in front of a fan until I stop sweating and my temperature cools down.
    Weird, huh?
