  • Salt Preworkout

    In college I used to eat 14 egg whites for breakfast with salt and 5 slices of white bread with honey. I was always a huge believer in a high glycemic breakfast because I got by far the best pumps of my life while eating this. I would also pound about 100oz of water with this meal, then go to class, hope I didn't piss myself, then go lift. My pumps would be so intense I would have panic attacks. I was also dieting and losing about a 2lbs/week at the time. I always attributed this to the high glycemic carbs.

    Anyway, I've since tried the high glycemic breakfast, but did not have the same success with pumps (still great from a fullness perspective, but not the painful panic-inducing level). The one thing that changed is the way I eat my eggs (plain, no salt). I have since changed my breakfast to oats and egg whites, because I was staying smooth longer than I liked after a Sunday refeed. I now know that salt helps with water retention and can enhance pumps (I believe a few of TP's peri supps contain sea salt). Just wondering if anyone purposely takes in some salt pre-workout for this reason. If so, what amounts?

    I just take in salt in my intra-workout mix (BCAA plus, and Sweedish Oath Starch). The sweedish oat starch has the electrolyte add in from trueprotein, so I'm not really sure how much sodium it has in it.

      Notice any difference?
