Years ago as a kid I remember the prevailing myth around (in '60s or earlier) was that bbers and guys who trained with weights who got really muscular and lean would become "musclebound" which meant that they would suffer lots of incapacitating muscular cramps due to their overly developed muscles.
And in fact, as the myth went, they would lose nearly all functionality and flexibility becoming so rigid and tight that they could hardly move about.
Of course now we know that this is totally false.
However, over the years as I myself have become more muscular and solidly built I do suffer more and more muscle cramps, especially within the abs/gut region, ribcage area and lats.
it's getting to the point where everday common actions can cause cramping which may last for 10 minutes or more, such as a sneeze, cough, a hearty laugh, yawning, or quick sudden twist or jerky movement. To date I have not gotten a good explanation of this or a good remedy.
Do I need to supplement more on sodiums and minerals like in Gatorade drinks? or is it my electrolytes are too low?
any thoughtful educated help is appreciated.
