We All Hate Cramp, Here's How To Prevent It

Having muscle cramps after you have worked out and don't know why? Did you know the most common places of cramp are the calf, thigh and arch of the foot. Cramps happen when you work out hard, so do not be alarmed. However, the reason for the cramps could be down to a number of things. For instance, you may need to check your diet, making sure you consume enough salt, potassium and calcium to prevent cramping. When you workout you lose important electrolytes, so it's important to put them back into your body. An electrolyte/isotonic drink is great for this. Other ways to prevent cramping is stretching and making sure you drink enough water. If your cramps persist, it is always good to see your doctor.

    The rest of the time, in my thigh mostly
