    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    My sweat wasn't Salty?

    Just recently I found that in the last couple of days I have been working out and sweating, I noticed i'v been sweating more then usual (wich I thought would be great for my skin) but I also noticed when my sweat dripped near my mouth it wasn't salty at all.

    I'm guessing I might be lacking something but I don't know what that is. Any questions or answers would be nice

    my personal guess was a lack of sodium in my body perhaps,

    thanks in advance

    Did you happen to be cramping a lot during these work outs? It sounds like your salinity levels were down, which can cause it.

    Hmm... Salinity levels? I did have some slight uncomfortable moments around my stomach but not during the work outs. I notice my toes get stuck alot when they are bent while training though... but what is Salinity?

    You are lacking in sodium and potassium, or just drinking so much water that your electrolytes are low.

    Just the salt levels in your body thats being processed out through your sweat.(Like the ocean)

    If I am working out for more than an hour, I'll usually have some watered down gatorade to make sure my electrolytes are where they should be, but I'm not a workout expert. If its not affecting your workout or your not feeling bad physically, I wouldn't worry too much about it, maybe have some pretzels or jerky after exercising

    why?

    I mean is this a conscious choice to drink more water or a symptom of a deeper cause?
