I wanted to have a deeper understanding of how the sweat formed on garments and decided to being my experimenting on myself. Wearing the same items over a week period i performed 2 x 30 minutes high intensity gym sessions to maximise the sweat i produced.

Sweating on average one pint a day of sweat from our feet i wanted to experiment with the shoes of athletes from an intense sport. Ballet dancers are on there feet at least 5 days a week for numerous hours. How much sweat would there feet produce. Would the crystals grow from inside the shoe and how big would they grow.

Like any other naturally grown material sweat crystals are fully biodegradable. How could i protect them from being damaged. Make them last longer with out damaging them.

Depending on our health our sweat has a different PH level meaning our sweat would react to the anthocyanin in the red cabbage.

When changing the colour of red cabbage changing the PH level can give an array of colours to chose from. How would the crystals react with an alkaline dye. Will it be encapsulated in the sweat crystals.

When changing the colour of red cabbage changing the PH level can give an array of colours to chose from. How would the crystals react with an acidic dye. Will it be encapsulated in the sweat crystals..

Using chromatography to separate the molecules. What can each tested crystal tell us about the individual.

Could this be a natural biosensor to explain the performance of athletes.

AP-0001-624-0016-BEFORE-ACS

After previous experiments on myself i wanted to compare my person results to male athletes. I selected two types of athletes one body builder and the other cross fit. How would the crystals change between genders. How much sweat would an athlete produce.

After the workout i documented the sweat patterns produced on the sportswear to see if it would have any correlation to where the crystals formed.

After collecting the participants sweat i completed the same process that i had done previously on my own sweat. How would the structures compare. Would they follow the same sweat pattern prior to crystallisation.

How would the crystals change between sport. Could a difference in diet and training lead to a change in structure or growth. My participant for cycling is part of the UK British cycling, national ranking of 13. How would this compare to a professional body builder.

Looking back at the feet of the athletes, i wanted to compare the sweat between gender/ discipline sweat production. Knowing that we sweat the most from our feet and that men sweat more then females. How will this compare in the results.
