Dealing with calf cramps

Over the last year, I’ve started to have complications with leg cramps.

While I might notice a bit of tenderness in my calves during the day, the concerns worsen at night.

When I go to bed, the muscles tend to seize up as well as cramp… The pain is excruciating. I am then forced to get out of bed as well as stretch. I’ve tried over-the-counter pain medicine as well as pain-alleviating ointments. I sporadically need to sleep with heating pads wrapped around my legs. The leg cramps are most likely caused by overtoiling the muscles. I workout for approximately an hour every day. My exercise sessions are strenuous! Because I’m hoping to burn as multiple calories as possible, I include a good deal of high-intensity aerobics. I sporadically go for an eight-mile jog or run wind sprints. I like to cycle as well as jump rope. I do jumping jacks, squats, lunges, mountain climbers as well as burpees. The majority of the exercises utilize the several leg muscles. I now make sure to spend more time on my warm up as well as cool down. I have become more focused on familiar stretching. I take at least one day a week where I allow the leg muscles to rest; For those exercise sessions, I might lift free weights, use the battle ropes, toss a medicine ball or toil with resistance bands. I concentrate on all unusual types of abdominal crunches as well as do push-ups as well as plank holds. I’ve read that a lack of familiar hydration can also contribute to leg cramps. I obtained myself a much bigger water bottle as well as now make a point to drink a lot more water before, during as well as after the workout.
