OK, so here?s my issue. During the day I?m a computer geek who lift?s weights on my lunch break. I eat pretty well, actually I eat very well during the week and sorta slack a bit on the weekends, but not too bad.
On the weekends I?m a drummer for a band. We play most every weekend, at times both nights, Friday and Saturday. I?ve been having issues the last few weeks with my forearms and calves cramping up, pretty bad too? I almost had to stop a couple weeks ago because it got so bad?
Anyway, a few people I told this to asked if I was hydrated enough. I assume so I drink a bunch of water or green tea, like all the time. Between the 2 I probably get anywhere from 1-2 gallons of liquid each day, so ?I think? I?m good there?
The other thing that was brought up with Potassium, Potassium is in my multi-vitamin that I take every day, I do forget on weekend sometimes : | and there?s a bunch of Potassium in Grow. I normally have 4 scoops of Grow and/or ?M? each day.
I guess should I look into getting more Potassium? How much should I take? If I take too much it shouldn?t harm me anyway will it? How should I get it? Drink a protein shake before I play, or get some Potassium supplements or eat a bunch of bananas??? Thoughts???
