    The main purpose of recovery is to replace what was lost during training. The main things “lost” during training are water and electrolytes due to sweat. The main electrolyte lost in sweat is sodium, and focusing on replacing sodium after training is extra important as the other electrolytes are not lost nearly to the same degree. If you’re training hard, make sure you’re taking in plenty of water and don’t be afraid to consume more salt than the DRI. Proper hydration is necessary for cellular function and recovery, and both water and salt play a major role!

    Since a few months, I always add 2 teaspoons of salt to my training water. Sometimes I also add a pinch of magnesium.

    Same here. I catch myself taking maybe 1/4 tsp before hitting arms. For some reason I get some good pumps. I'm not too sure why, but it works.

    Just another reason why it worked when guys used to take baking soda before a work out....................this is true "old School", but it works via a few different mechanisms.

    Oh yes, I saw that advice posted on the PM forum, so I decided to test it, and it works, even without sugar or amino acids, only water with sodium.


    Now, I am in a power program and then there are no bombs, but I like the taste of salt water, lol.

    I've started to add a pinch of Himalayan pink salt to glass of water every other hour. It's chock full of electrolytes and minerals and is great for rehydration. I use in my cooking and baking..mits a true staple in a home.

    Pink Himalayan salt: Does it have any health benefits?

    My #1 sign besides quicker muscle fatigue is my hands start to peel..molt? LoL. Orals make this worse. Injects are as bad (for me, everyone is different). Anything that dries you out, drink more OR use hydration tabs. Contest prep? Watch those tabs, sodium and swelling. There is a science to this thing we call pumping iron!

    His hands peeling it's the oddest things. I make him use a pumice stone and force lotion on his hands. I don't like holding sandpaper hands Hydration and Electrolytes
