Further justification, if needed, for salting your wounds
Iodine deficiency can lead to thyroid issues, stalling metabolism. If you don’t eat seafood, a pinch of iodised salt on your chicken breast will keep things ticking over.
Sodium lost through sweat during a tough weights session can cause cramping and inhibit muscle repair if not replaced. Add a few flakes to your shakes.
When training in the heat, a pre-workout hit of salt – with plenty of water, of course – can help you stay adequately hydrated. Try a supp like SIS Go Electrolyte.
