Why is this? I mean granted I do a lot of drop sets with weights for 45 minutes and move fast between sets but maaan it gets annoying. Then I do hard cardio for 24 minutes after weights and I'm soaked with sweat, especially my head. Wtf? I'm in great shape too. 

I look around and nobody has sweat streaming off their chin like me. Friggin embarassing.

Excess sweating is mostly harmless and a normal reaction when the body needs to cool down.  People vary in how much they sweat.  Overweight or out of shape people tend to sweat more.  However night sweating or sudden unusual sweating might be a medical condition that deserves a visit to doctor.

Yeah, I guess my cooling system is just more responsive. My workout partner hardly sweats much. I've known one guy at the gym years back that told me he doesn't ever sweat and was always concerned.
