Sweating is simply your body’s way of cooling itself off and typically occurs when your core temperature begins to rise.

Everyone sweats at different rates, so if you aren’t sweating while working out…it’s ok.
Have you ever been on a long hike and been sore the next day? If you are sore, chances are it is from the fact that you did something that your body is not used to. However if you’re hiking every day and aren’t sore the day after, it’s most likely because your body is adapting to the workload—performing the tasks more efficiently. Now, in order to keep progressing, it is important to not get comfortable with the workload and to continually raise the intensity.
“This is a popular myth in part because of an optical illusion. If I transition from an active lifestyle of building mass to whatever an alternative lifestyle looks like, there is a transformation. The muscles get smaller and the body fat will probably rise depending on the diet. This leads most people to believe that in fact their muscle is turning into fat,” “The real story is that muscle and fat are actually two totally different tissue systems with different functions. Muscle tissue is what gives you mass and what is constantly burning calories. The fat tissue is what gives you the ‘gut’ and is where excess energy is stored. Although energy is shared between the two systems, muscle and fat do not convert to one another. They simply move up and down on a spectrum independently and in most cases simultaneously.”
