I am over weight (6 ft 1" and 105 kgs/231 oz). I started working out 8 months ago and I have lost 25kgs/55 pounds. I run for 25 minutes (and cover about 3.20 kilometers/2 miles in that time ) on the treadmill. I do stretching exercises. I further do some weight and resistance exercises like inclined bench presses, squats, etc.
I was recently suggested to wear a sweatshirt while my workout.
I am thinking that this might make sense cos obviously be sweating more .. so maybe that means I am burning more calories as well .. But I am not sure .. So please let me know if this technique makes any sense ..
