You might be surprised to learn that human sweat is not all the same. Sweat volume losses can vary widely between individuals under the same conditions.  Additionally, the concentration of electrolytes contained in human sweat can vary as much as eightfold.

Combine these two factors, and for two different people under the same conditions it is possible to see as much as a 13-fold difference in net electrolyte losses between them. In terms of sodium loss—which is the ‘most active’ key electrolyte lost in human sweat—studies have shown some athletes are losing as little as 2.3 g of sodium and others as much as 30 g of sodium in exactly the same training session!

Managing electrolyte balance is critical to optimum performance… hard to do if you don’t know your individual sweat composition.  Poor management of this electrolyte balance can result in cramps or hyponatremia.  Additionally, your performance drops off well before these symptoms occur.
