Dove, I tend to disagree. Sodium intake doesn't HAVE to be from sea salt. I'm looking at the back of a knock-off gatorade right now, and it contains 110mg of sodium. If I use that to wash down 1 serving of beef jerky, I add another 600mg. And lets be honest, who eats ONE servering of beef jerky once a big bag opens? This is just me munching on a snack at my desk. What about a full meal? You might get a full gram of sodium from your food without adding salt to anything. Hence, no need to substitute sea salt.

I'm not saying that sea salt is not an excellent way to get your daily sodium, but it is far from necessary.

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.
