Try gatorade or a sports drink with electrolytes while training. >>>
You’re on the right track, but I would recommend more potassium rich foods overall like celery, raisins, some black strap molasses or even plain ol potatoes, baked or steamed, as examples. A tablespoon of black strap molasses has 3 times as much potassium as a whole 16 ounce gatorade as well as having b vitamins, some iron and a splash of carbs.
I always throw a tablespoon in my workout shakes. Also tastes like black licorice. Cramps are very often a symptom of inadequate potassium intake. Inadequate for a weight training individual that is. What’s fine for the average shlub may not cut it for somebody very active.[/quote]
will try it and report back!
