Hi, I guess this excessive exercise has an effect on the apocrine sweat glands, so more bacterially converted apocrine sweat is secreted on the skin. Usually though, physical exercise causes more eccrine sweat on the skin (more water and salts) and that does not smell bad. But there are always exceptions. Best, Chris
