Why I oughta ...
One banana has about 425 mg of potassium, which is good. However ...
1 oz of potato chips has 361-465 mg of potassium! Plus they have plenty of sodium and carbohydrates! Potato chips are clearly the best athletic endurance food!
Plenty of Gin & Tonic is the best for post-workout rehydration.
zinc and magnesium works for me. Twinlabs product called ZMA is cheap and very beneficial. especially cool are the "lucid dream state" side effects!!!
Stretches, I prefer Yoga: Hatha and/or Ashtanga. Also, bananas are great solution too.
I don't wear tights.
Thanks for the suggestion but I think i'm going to stick with PB + Banana for now. Need all the calories I can get also it's yummy.
I like this solution.
I get nasty foot cramps. Rarely leg cramps, but my toes and the arch of one foot or the other will sometimes do exacty what your legs to. It's usually when I have had too much coffee and not enough water over the course of a day. Or a couple energy drinks. I like talent booster/ego enhancement drinks as much as the next guy, but those have side effects if you get too much of it and don't dilute it with enough water. Water is the main thing, but the trace minerals others have mentioned also count. Sometimes, at the end of a long show, my hands will start to cramp. This especially happens when it's good and hot and I'm being over-energetic on the upright. It's a dehydration problem then.
Another aspect of it is that I'm on some kind of diuretic blood pressure control stuff. That washes salts of various kinds out of my system. As a result, I have to be more careful about making sure I drink enough water and get the right salts back into my system. I avoid sugar for the most part (just don't like it and don't like sweet food all that much), so that complicates things. Fruit and vegetables are great, but things like Gatorade isn't my idea of a good time.
There's got to be some kind of potassium enhanced bean burrito out there. Black beans, perhaps? Hmmm... Now I know what to have for lunch!
If I ever get desperate enough to ask a medical question on TB, that's when I know I need to call my Dr.
Carrot juice might work.
Maybe you need a pair of Tuna Fish shorts.
I do a lot of walking and used to suffer with cramps in my calves during the night after a long walk (5 hours+). I also got them if played a gig especially if it was outdoors on a cool/cold evening.
I now eat at least one banana per day and have started making my own hydration fluid.
When I finish a walk I usually have a bag of crisps (potato chips?) for a bit of extra salt.
I put an extra layer of bedding over my lower legs after a walk or gig or anytime I get the feeling that my calves might cramp up.
I now only get them very occasionally and they are not nearly as bad as they used to be.
I have heard of people drinking pickle juice. Haven't tried it myself.
No! No! No! You're WAY off!!!!
A double Jack Daniels Single Barrel either neat or with some Coke. That's what the doctor orders any and all ailments known to mankind.
It works. Plus, pickles are good. Dill pickles. You can keep the sweet pickles. I don't like sugar very much.
I have had these, and I think they hit the spot on a hot day. Now, they are a bit overpriced, but it's all in the packaging.
I get those. I usually just step out of bed and flatten my foot to get rid of it.
It's 'Off Topic" stress that causes it.
So you clinically are a tight ass.
Interesting. I'll have to research that. Just read that one teaspoon contains 80% of your daily sodium intake though and most of us are not lacking in sodium in our diets.
